It's Mondegreen Time At The OK Corral!

mondegreen22.jpg

One of the few reasons to read the San Francisco Chronicle was the immensely amusing columnist that they must have hired by mistake. The rest of them were pompous asses, but Jon Carroll was damned clever and funny, and he introduced me to Mondegreens!

But the real origin is an American writer in the 1950s...Sylvia Wright (Yeah; I never heard of her either).

"When I was a child, my mother used to read aloud to me from Percy's Reliques. One of my favorite poems began, as I remember:

Ye Highlands and ye Lowlands,
Oh, where hae ye been?
They hae slain the Earl Amurray,
And Lady Mondegreen."

The actual words of the ballad are:

Ye Highlands and Ye Lowlands,
O where hae ye been?
They hae slain the Earl of Moray,
And hae laid him on the green

The internet has thousands of examples that are a bit too tortured for my taste. I think the best ones are almost indistinguishable from the correct lyric.

And really...it almost has to be from a song. As tempting as it is to torture lines from novels or poems, the only reason we call them Mondegreens is because Wright's mom was reading the poem. So at the very least they should be confined to spoken or sung lines.

Here are a few of my favorites, and the original lines should be obvious.

"The girl with colitis goes by"

"and there's a wino down the road - I should have stolen Oreos"

"I really don't like him... Doctor Cashpot, Doctor Cashpot"

"I'll be with you darling now; I'll be with you till my skis have dried off.""

And Open Thread....but only after you provide at least one good Mondegreen.

12 One that always stuck with me, and it's always been unique to me, is this, a Steve Miller song:

I refreshed once, because I stupidly read the content. I then paused for a moment, because I have a couple of these, but can't remember the song for the artist. Then I took a chance.

Anyway, one of them is a song about New York, where the female singer declares that it's the place where dreams are made of, but I always heard her singing of wintry tomatoes.

See? Makes no sense. Might as well be Joe Biden, FFS.

144 In Gilbert O'Sullivan's melancholy "Alone Again, Naturally", there is a line, "as if to knock me down, reality came around." As a kid, I thought this was ""as if to knock me down, my allergies came around." I felt an affinity for the song because I had bad allergies, and they would indeed "come around" and "knock me down." I think I wanted the song to be saying that.

321 When my son was 5, his best friend was a very cool 6 year old, with cool older sisters. My son's friend was walking around our house, snapping his fingers and singing Prince songs.

He looked at my son and said, " what is YOUR favorite song?"

My son pondered for a moment, then said very seriously. "Jingle Bells."

440 I think a true mondegreen would be one that seems plausible (not probable) based on the context of the song because unless the singer missang, your brain is going to try to make what it thinks it hears fit best and part of that is how it feels where it is. "Lady Mondegreen" fits perfectly given the lyrical context. I have never, ever heard that anyone really thinks they heard "girl with collitis goes by". Yeah, you can "see" why they sound similar, but c'mon.

That hatred was prior to Cream. When they were with the Graham Bond Organization band they got into a fight and Baker pulled a knife on Bruce. Clapton said he spent the whole time trying to be a peacemaker between them. I found this story from Forbes:


The story goeswhen late bassist Jack Bruce was a few hours from
death in 2014, he phoned up close friends to say goodbye. When he called
his ex-Cream band mate Ginger Baker, he told him, "I'm dying, Ginger,
f*ck you," then slammed down the phone. Baker tried to call back several
times, of course, but Bruce wouldn't pick up. If that is nota true story, it is certainlyplausible.

497 (You're So Vain) I had no idea why the dude's 'scarf was African,' but it kinda made sense... and why he watched himself 'go by...' in the mirror.......nor did I question why she had 'clowns in my (her) coffee.....'...... and when he went to 'Santa Toga'...and why he spent time with the 'wife of a cloaksman'....whatever that was.

I loved the song, but I was definitely confused. But I accepted her, because of the album cover.

variety of music in human history. More genres, more widely distributed
than ever before.

Now it's all collapsing in on itself. I tell my kids: "The old world in its sunset was fair to see."

The songs were simply more varied. Sure you have to sappy love songs. But, you had off beat songs that were good. Rap and hip-hop were a disaster. No instruments, no melody, nothing.

Yes! Just thinking about that myself. The variety was staggering. Someone in the Sterogum comments mentioned that no instrumental has hit the top 10 since the 80s, when tracks like "Rockit" and "Axel's Theme" were the last of them.

Pretty sure the same could be said for foreign-language tracks ("99 Luftaballons" and a lot of other stuff from the 80s, when anything and everything went.

His version of Dire Straits "Money for Nothing" is spot-on, down to his imitation of Knopfler's vocal style. Knopfler actually demanded to play guitar on that one, and says his work there is better than on the original.

541 "And like a lizard that cries in the face of a monster that lives in our dreams
Is there anyone there 'cause it's getting harder and harder to breathe"

Apparently it's little girl, not lizard, and "her", not "our".

Their diction on that song is terrible, BTW. There's another line I can never make out but sounds like:

"You should know better you never listen to what I said
Puts in your pillow arriving when the n*****s sweat
Hoping somebody someday will do you like I dare!"

Apparently it's:
"Clutching your pillow and writhing in a naked sweat
Hoping somebody someday will do you like I did"

Which is actually reassuring.

And in the bridge:
"When there's a cure
There's a drug
There's a painful love
And it's me
But it's all in control
There's a thrill
When you sail
When you feel
That I break on the waves
That you're acting on"

The actual lyrics are:
"Does it kill
Does it burn
Is it painful to learn
That it's me
That has all the control
Does it thrill
Does it sting
When you feel what I bring
And you wish that you had me to hold"

And in that case, f*** Maroon 5, the misheard version of their lyrics is way better on the bridge and I refuse to stop singing it.

However, "sonically" "in the garden of eden" doesn't work for that melody at that speed. BUT "inna gadda da veeda" does! Perfectly! We laugh at/mock it because of its backstory, but if you can set that aside, it's tasty. The thing is, everyone knows it means "in the garden of eden" so that's how your brain interprets it, without the distraction of "in the garden of eden".

And play just what I feel

They call Al Manna the pins all died
They call me deegan blues

Just watching the video for Tracey Ullman's girl-group throwback "They Don't Know" and there's a scene where a grocery store manager grabs her ass as she's walking down the aisle (it's not shown but implied) and she just makes an annoyed face and goes on singing and shopping.

I was like, yeah, these days she'd have him arrested on the spot, and he'd never work again. In the 80s it was played for laughs. And she got lucky with Paul McCartney at the end of the video.

584 Another example of the wild and wonderful variety in 80s music: The Housemartins' "Caravan of Love."

British alternative group who identified as "Christian Socialists" drop their instruments and nail the a capella shit out of an Isley Brothers Christian song. And it was no studio trickery. They could and did pull it off live. No auto-tune, no backing tapes. Sounds as great today as it always did.

590 John Cougar Mellancamp's song "Pop Singer" made sense in my version back in the late 80s:

Original:
"I never wanted to be no Pop Singer,
Never wanted to write no Pop Songs."

I heard:
"Never wanted to be no Bob Seger,
Never wanted to write no Bob Songs."

Made perfect sense. Though I did not like Mellencamp much, I hated the never ending replaying of the same Bob Seger songs on the radio. All I could think was "Hey, Johnny boy grew some balls! Awesome."

The way she describes that loser, he is definitely a heap of bad news.

602 One good one? Ok, the lyric/song title that introduced me to this fascinating subject was: Alex the Seal by 'The Go Go's'

I saw it on a Web site called "www dot KissThisGuy dot com" (not sure if you allow live links in the comments) and was hooked on the topic. In the early days it was all natural mistakes, but I think a great many of the later entries were kinda faked "mis-hearings" just so people could get their name up on the web site.
However, to this day, I giggle every time I think of Alex the Seal. (Original song - Our Lips are Sealed - obviously)

614 As a song writer (in the low thousands) I often (nearly every song) put in a few of these. The ambiance of ambiance is swashbuckling.I learned my craft partly from 50s and songs pop songs. Louie Louie is a fave. Also, trying to make them dirty-clean with this trick was a fave for many of us in the 60s. The Rolling stones made a mark in their early careers by purposely making the lyrics non understandable. Of course the Beatles did it as well, but with a lot more craft and subtly. Let give a big hand to Billy Shears and the Sgt Spielunkers Bony Farts club land.

630 I would like to let all know that the size of your Penis really matters in your relationship or marriage. I got married to my wife about 1 month after we met in a photo studio, we lived happily for the first 3 months of our marriage until my wife and I started having quarrels at home because I couldn't satisfy her in bed with my little penis. Actually my penis was very small, it measured about 4.5 inch long on erection and I am 51 years old. My wife said it was forbidden by the women of this world. My wife started sleeping with other men outside. Sometimes i will return from work without finding my wife at home and whenever i call or ask her where she was, she will always snub at me and sometimes just tell me to go get a larger dick. All this continued for a long time and it hurt me so much that I was at the edge of breaking up on the marriage till when I read about a doctor called DR.Moses Buba. online. I never thought i could smile and be in a happy marriage again if not for the help of DR.Moses Buba. I got the doctors Emailsbuba.herbalmiraclemedicine@gmail.com ) on the internet and i emailed him, and he got back to me with some encouraging words, he got me some herbs cream which i use for just 8 days and i began to feel the enlargement of my penis, and without surgery. This went on for a little period of about 10 days and to my surprise my wife keeps screaming that she loves my big dick now. Now my wife no longer cheats on me, and my penis is now about 10.5 inches long on erection and off course very large round. And now my wife uses breasts, hips and bums enlargement. I and my wife are very happy for the help rendered to me by DR.Moses Buba, and I want to say a big thanks to the Doctor for the help. You can contact the Doctor now on his Email buba.herbalmiraclemedicine@gmail.com ) OR WHATSAPP +2349060529305, you can even contact me to know my result or see it with your eye on whats-app or you can call me +886981036185 or
