    Utterly ridiculous song lyrics

    Thousands of examples obviously, but going through some old stuff on spotify just now I came across these words of wisdom from Marc Bolan on Electric warrior. The song is "cosmic dancer"

    "Is it wrong to understand the fear that dwells inside a man?
    What's it like to be a loon?
    I liken it to a balloon"

    Awesome! 😂😂😂😂

    Bolan's lyrics were immense. *



    *Immense... adj... utterly banal, meaningless, probably drug-addled, but ultimately full of heartbreaking nostalgia. (See also Girl I'm just a jeepster for your love.)

    Didn't Bowie once admit that some of his lyrics were "written" by throwing a lot of words on cardboard up in the air and making them into a song in the order they landed?

    Despite loving their work, I often have no idea what Radiohead are on about.

    Procul Harem's A Whiter Shade of Pale is just nonsense.

    Think he did. Life On Mars anyone?

    Jon Anderson from Yes once said that his lyrics weren't meant to mean anything. He thought of the voice as another instrument, and he chose words that "fitted" the music, even although they were gibberish in themselves.

    That makes sense IMO. It's all about the context, which is why I still love Bolan's nursery rhymes.


    PS... "The general consensus is that “A Whiter Shade Of Pale” is a snapshot of a drunken sexual escapade gone awry. "

    Honourable mention to Monty Python's I like Traffic Lights?

    Probably no mind expanding drugs involved, and if it wasn't for a lack of airplay at the time could easily have became a classic.

    Not many reach the end

    Been around the world by Lisa Stansfield. The opening chorus says that she doesn't know why her "baby" left her. The rest of the song is about why her "baby " left.

    He didn't admit to that, he bragged about it.

    Should I stay or should I go by The Clash

    Should I stay or should I go now?
    If I go, there will be trouble
    If I stay, it will be double
    So come on let me know


    Go obviously. Half the trouble, save yourself some hassle.

    I know a mouse, and he hasn't got a house.
    I don't know why I call him Gerald.
    He's getting rather old, but he's a good mouse.

    Victoria's secret, she couldn't let go
    When death came a-calling
    For Albert, her beau
    All manner of Voodoo
    Or Witchcraft she tried
    To bring back her Albert
    To be by her side
    Now Albert is back
    But Albert has changed!
    Albert is hungry for commoner's brains!

    You can always rely on The Men That Will Not Be Blamed for Nothing to come up with some cracking ridiculous nonsense
    Madness, as you know, is a lot like gravity. All it takes is a little push.

    Noel Gallagher hates that song and those lyrics.

    Not because it's them, but the Hearts song that says " if you can cannae spell it, then here's what it says". I've never got that.

    I wrote this song two hours before we met, I didn’t know your name or what you looked like yet.
