The first lyric that really struck me as strange is from one of my personal favourite songs. "Wish you were here" by Pink Floyd now don't get me wrong I love this song. But the opening verse asks the listener if they can discern various things.
So, so you think you can tell
Heaven from Hell
Blue skies from pain
I get the first part, one man's Heaven may be another man's Hell, and there are no right or wrong answers about each one.
But the second bit "Blue skies from pain", these are both easily definable things. And I can't imagine anybody getting the two confused? Even someone feeling alienated from other people such as Roger Waters was at the time he wrote the song. Unless you are maybe one of those people that can taste numbers.
|Now Ms Johnson if I touch here, do you feel any Blue Skies?|
Are we Human or are we dancer?
I guess the first thing to query is whether or not Mr Flowers is aware that when using we, we are in the plural form of the language? Because Dancer is of course the singular form, I think he was looking for dancers.
Maybe he got lambasted as a child for calling sheep, sheeps so is now afraid to put an "s" on anything.
The real question though aside from this grammatical is why he is differentiating people based on whether they are dancers or not?
Does he not consider them human, is he proposing some sort of apartheid/segregation system where Dancers are riding in the backs of buses, drinking from different water fountains?

3/ Tik tok - Ke$ha
Wake up in the morning feeling like P Diddy?
Really Ke$ha (pronounced Key-dollar-ha, presumably) you woke up this morning feeling like a highly-successful-African-American-entrepreneur -who-launched-many-successful-companies-after-his-father-was-killed-at-aged-33-in-drug-deal. Really?? How does that feel?
I have seen the video you wake up in a bathtub belonging to a suburban middle class white family, I am not sure P. Diddy has ever experienced this.
He probably wakes up in a bed in one of his many mansions or yachts after a party he has hosted. You look like you have just got too drunk at a party, and the hosts put you in the bath to let you sleep it off.
|Wake up in the morning looking like I drunk too much at a college party.|
"And now, the dudes are lining up cause they hear we got swagger
But we kick em to the curb unless they look like Mick Jagger"
Last time I checked Mick Jagger looked like a prune with ridiculous lips, so that is the type of man you are into? Surely you are kicking them to the curb because they look like Mick Jagger?
You may say wait wait, its not all about looks, I know this, but she explicitly states unless he looks like Mick Jagger, not acts or behaves like Mick Jagger. So that nullifies that arguement.
Seeing as there are many many songs, I don't suspect this will be my last blog on Music, stay tuned. If you have any suggestions, or similar things feel free to leave them in the comments.
