Re: Dogs of Diamond new [re: Sysiyo]  

Unfortunately I thought for a long time "mannequins with kill appeal" was "Americans with kill appeal"

I'm glad it's the former, mannequins with kill appeal does sound a lot better.

Re: Dogs of Diamond new [re: PHOENIX]  

When I first heard Diamond Dogs, I thought it was:
"Dressed like a freak, he was,dog sounding sleep, he was"
which makes no sense, but I was only 9!

by god...it's confusing new [re: Sysiyo]  

Over the past few weeks I have seen quoted here and there lines from Joe the Lion;

"You can buy God. It's Monday"

I had always misinterpreted these lines because of the inflection in Bowies voice. It sounds like he is starting a new sentence after the "You can". So I always thought it was meant to be the beginning of a sentence in a fading passage, interuppted by "By God! ect ect". "By God" meaning something like "My Goodness" (note: I know there is "My God!" but there is also "By God", usually as the beginning of a sentence describing an event being witnessed.

So my image of the lines were;

You can...By God! It's Monday, ect ect

Please listen, it does sound like he's saying it like that doesn't it? Or is it just me? I'm not arguing over what the actual lyrics are, just how they sound.

ok, I'm done

I've never heard it like that, but I understand how it could be heard like that. I've allways heard the sentence structure as it is, but sometimes misheard the can (see above).

Re: by god...it's confusing new [re: Sysiyo]  

I still say the lyrics given w/ the CDs are often wrong. When I find lyrics that don't match what I hear, I listen to the song several more times to see if I can make out the "correct" lyrics, but sometimes the "correct" version seems so wrong I just assume the sleeve must be mistaken. I know in Ziggy Stardust, there's at least one lyric that the sleeve has wrong (it's not an important deviation, but I'm 99% sure Bowie isn't singing what it says he is.)

There are a lot of inaccuracies on the lyrics printed on the inner sleeve of "Hunky Dory", but I assume David just changed them at the last minute (like singing "daddy" instead of "father" on "Life on Mars"). If I remember correctly, the lyrics to "Starman" were printed as follows on the book "The Songs of David Bowie":

"that weren't no DJ that was hazy, cosmic, too high".

Other non-Bowie misheard lyrics:

"Those bastards" instead of "ghostbusters".
"What a drag" instead of "wanna try" (on Queen's "Killer Queen").

The funniest one of all in my opinion: fans of the Italian singer Rita Pavone still firmly believe that the lyrics to Pink Floyd's "Saint Tropez" go: "making a date for Rita Pavone". It's actually "making a date for later by phone", but the (mis)quote can be found on a major Rita Pavone site.

Re: Intentionally misheard lyrics new [re: ScreamingByron]  

I always heard "I've got a chicken to ride" instead of Ticket to ride in the Beatles song. I have that going through my head quite a lot for some unknown reason.

I missed this the first go-round, but I heartily agree with you on this, p2c. Well, actually, I hear 'Please Savior, save your shores'
