Name that tune!!!!!!!

Posted: August 13, 2014 in Uncategorized

Sorry, it has been so long since I have posted, but Breaking Faith has been consuming my time. I am tentatively announcing a October release date. The cover should be done the end of this month, beginning of September.  So, be ready for a cover release party.

So, the other day I was massaging one of my clients, and listening to Pandora when the Beatles song, Yesterday came on. (Stupidly, you can start shaking your heads now) I asked if it was the Boy’s to Men song. Mind you my client is a encyclopedia of  music information, and corrected me quickly. Now normally, I am more of the classic rock, or rock persuasion so why I even knew that Boy’s to Men sang this song is beyond me. I was the weird little girl singing Pink Floyd, while my other class mates were listening to. . . honestly I don’t know, maybe Boy’s to Men, lol.

Anyway’s, I was telling my client that I am really bad at lyric’s in songs, and get corrected all the time by JM. Mostly because I sing songs at the top of my lungs, for all to hear. I have had this affliction for as long as I can remember, and JM finds it hilarious. Now of course I am going to give you examples, because I think my lyrics make more sense than some of the real ones.

New Orlean’s….. this one is JM’s favorite, and I still have a hard time with the real lyrics Who are you?  by The  Who.

I know it makes no sense, I always thought it was a song from the tourist bureau of New Orleans…

New Orlean’s oh oh New Orlean’s oh oh…Let me tell you about New Orlean’s …I really wanna go to New Orlean’s

Honestly I could sing the whole song, with my lyrics

After he stopped laughing at this one, I decided why not tell him my other famous mishearings…..

Cannonball….. Yes, I understand the name of the song is Panama, but I didn’t know that at the time and will still sing Cannonball when it comes on.

Red Hot Love….I laughed out loud when JM corrected me, and told me that it was Radar Love, and asked him if he was talking about the dude from M.A.S.H. I hate that show, my dad used to watch it all the time, and I absolutely hated it. My client told me that Radar Love makes sense if I listened to the lyrics, which I guess are about some dude who wants to go to heaven and get his dead girlfriend, who committed suicide. (I am not a good person…needed to warn you now) I told him she probably committed suicide, because she had to watch M.A.S.H reruns. My poor client didn’t even know how to respond to that one.

He put in one about in Purple Haze, excuse me while I kiss this guy. LOL

I countered back with Hold me closer Tony Danza.


When I went to see Bon Jovi, I felt like a moron when I was the only one singing Shot through the heart, with a burning flame.  Oop’s

Oohhh, and I forgot Sophie Hawkins sings this song As I lay me down.. in the background she says One eyed gato. My friend used to scream at me that she was not singing about a half blind spanish cat, but I think it sounds better than whatever she thought it was.

I know I have more, and I will add to them when I think of some.

If you have any that you sing wrong, please feel free to comment, and make me feel better.

    I had a dream that felt so real that when I woke up in the morning, and for the remainder of the day, I was convinced that the lyrics to Bel Biv Devoe’s Poison were “never trust a big button smile” instead of “never trust a big butt and smile”. Nevermind the fact that I’ve only sung and danced to this song a million and one times and what the fuck is a “big button smile” anyway?!! I doubted myself so greatly I was forced to turn to my Facebook peeps for guidance, which of course, devolved into all kinds of nonsense. This is all to say, I totally feel you. I even blogged about it:

    Hope Breaking Faith is coming along well.
