Bad lyrics in great songs.

Post by jeffe » Mon Apr 02, 2007 4:18 am

We've all been picking apart each others songs on here. Praising some whilst criticising others.What about all those big hits?There's a lot with questionable lyrics in them. Lyrics that don't fit.We're not the only ones that don't get it right all the time.I'll start off with an example.'Chasing cars' by Snow Patrol has the following line in it:"Show me a garden that's bursting into life".There doesn't appear to be any relation in that line, to the rest of the song. In fact. I've seen this line criticised on a few music web sites.For those of you who don't know the song. It was a massive hit.The music and vocals are fantastic, and that was what sold it for me.Even though that line is irrelevant. It didn't stop it from being the smash hit it was.Got some more examples?
