    Makes absolutely no sense. People dance to music, not a music vibe.
    Maybe she's singing to someone called Vibe and you've missed out a comma.

    For us oldies, vibe is short for "vibration". So, yeah, I can dig that, man.

    On the topic of stupid songs...

    "If I ruled the world,
    every day would be the first day of spring"



    Oh great. Then I'd spend my whole life trying to get the Lawnmower to start

    If I ruled the world then trampolines would be banned for anyone under thirty.

    "Up to 50% sale"

    To keep that means the item is currently on sale at less than 50% of the original price and it's about to be increased.

    Just say "up to 50% off" and I'll be happy.

    This one grinds my gears on 2 levels. Up to 50% off means that 9% off comes into that category.

    Off what ? Whenever do they publish a full price list that we can refer to ?

    Sounds like a peeve.

    I automatically distrust comparative words which don't (appear to) have opposites.

    Less and more I can get behind.
    Lesser and greater do fine.
    What's the proper opposite of fewer? Manier?

    It's "more" as well is it not?

    Opposite of more is less. More than nine, opposite less than nine. More than twenty minutes to get an equaliser, less than twenty minutes to get an equaliser. Absolutely fine.

    A pint of beer/lager/Guinness.

    Pah.

    It's 500ml plus froth.

    Closer with cider.
