How does that go again?


I have a habit of buthering names, misquoting people and movies, and getting music lyrics completely wrong. Recently a buddy pointed me to a site that can help me with that last problem. The site is SongMeanings and it has the lyrics for almost 400,000 songs and over 30,000 artists. Ever wonder what the hell Dizzee Rascal is saying? No? Okay, me neither. But you might find it useful when listening to the classics (Beatles, Dylan) or bands you won't admit you love (Bright Eyes, Kelly Clarkson). No doubt (speaking of bands you won't admit listening to) the site will help resolve some Rock Club disputes in the future.

I admit to listening to No Doubt and Kelly Clarkson and one advantage is that I can actually understand what they are saying.

I never get the words right, but it makes for great fun for those around me.

I refuse to listen to No Doubt. Anything resembling ska music drives me crazy. Plus, I don't get why people think Gwen S. is so hot.

I do know KC's song "Since U Been Gone" but that's about it. You couldn't pay me to watch American Idol. Well, it depends on how much money we're talking about...

Until she got pregnant, I was convinced gwen stefani was born sexually ambiguous, and her parents chose for her to be a girl.

Broad shoulders/no hips/no breasts/effeminate-looking husband, I was absolutely sure of it, but then she had to go get knocked up...

Here's another "ska" band you can add to the list JS. I asked for the No Doubt greatest hits CD 2 years ago for Christmas. Thanks Santa. I am not ashamed to admit it. I also think Gwen Stephanie is hot, although Kevin had a good theory working. Then again, I'm a sucker for mediocrity adorned by something pretty and shiny. Lucky for me, there's a lot of that out there.

I'm not an American Idol fan, but does have something to offer in the comedy department.
Example:
This guy is either a comic genius, or clipped in the head:

Does anybody know where I can buy the t-shirt Dizzee Rascal is wearing in this picture? Been searching for it for about a month with absolutely no luck!
