I heard Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting and realized I didn't know what some of the lyrics actually were, despite singing along with it all these years.

You might be surprised to learn that this stanza

Well they're packed pretty tight in here tonight
I'm looking for a dolly who'll see me right
I may use a little muscle to get what I need
I may sink a little drink and shout out "She's with me!"


does not actually end with "I might sneak a little drink and shout out "LEMONADE!"

What a goofball.

That's funny. I always heard it as:

Took a little drink and shout out, "She's a lay!"

I just listened to it again. The vocals are pushed back in the mix so that doesn't help. But he definitely doesn't use a long 'e' in 'me'. He pronounces it more like the month of May.

Hahahahhaha! That's awesome. Not just me, Pete and Bri too. Anyone else hear that line uniquely?

Oh, and there was a bar in town years ago called the Getaway. It was real meat-marketish. My brother and his buddies called it the Get a Lay.

Now it's Illusions. I have dubbed it "Delusions." As far as I know, it's still real meat-marketish.

I am certain the furries are represented there, but during my last visit they must have been incognito.

Bringing a thread back from the dead because I finally watched Taylor Swift's Blank Space video.

I was always puzzled by the line "Got a long list of ex-lovers" because I heard it as "Gotta love these Starburst lovers". I mean it was lovely and lyrical and all, but did bring to mind long journeys in hired cars eating chewy sweets.

Fucking 'starburst'. What kind of a name is that? Bring back Opal Fruits! - made to make your mouth water, or so I'm told.

Fargon reminded me of a lyric I hilariously misheard for several years as a child.

Remember The Jeffersons? The intro/theme song has a lyric that says "As long as we live, It's you and me, baby, There ain't nothin' wrong with that..."

Well...

I heard it as "Long sweet lips, Chewin' me, baby, There ain't nothin' wrong with that".
