Ok. I think I lost a lot of people for round 2. Thankfully, Joel, Margeau and Katie were brave enough to share! You guys rock. Katie might be on to something with the prize thing.


Round 3 will be easier.


Name a song that contains lyrics that you do not understand.

This could be anything... like maybe you know it's a story and you don't know what it's about. Or maybe it's in a different language. Or maybe there's some off-the-wall phrase that they put in there that came out of nowhere.

Just name any song that you want to go up to the artist and say, "What the hell does that mean?" Or "Does this mean what I think it does?" Or "Does this have any meaning?"

Mine will be Come Together by the Beatles... I mean, come on. Those boys were smoking something...

Here come old flattop, he come grooving up slowly
He got joo-joo eyeball, he one holy roller
He got hair down to his knee
Got to be a joker he just do what he please

He wear no shoeshine, he got toe-jam football
He got monkey finger, he shoot coca-cola
He say "I know you, you know me"
One thing I can tell you is you got to be free
Come together right now over me

He bag production, he got walrus gumboot
He got Ono sideboard, he one spinal cracker
He got feet down below his knee
Hold you in his armchair you can feel his disease
Come together right now over me

He roller-coaster, he got early warning
He got muddy water, he one mojo filter
He say "One and one and one is three"
Got to be good-looking cos he's so hard to see
Come together right now over me

I wish Lennon was still alive. I'd totally write him and ask, "Dude. Wtf?"

Your turn!

Listen to "Come Together" stoned. It will totaly make sense. Kinda like Aqua Teen Hunger Force.

Honestly, parts of Bohemian Rhapsody, but I'm okay with it not making sense. I love that because frequently I don't make sense and it all balances out somehow. And that doesn't really make sense either. See?
