There literally is an ice cream van that does the rounds here at silly o’clock but they just smash a load of sweets in to the ice cream and charge £6. Wait a minute…

Shit lyrics obviously would be it’s own thread but I become so annoyed at “I remember when I met you just before September.”

August then, James? You met her in August. The month is called AUGUST. Nobody would ever, ever say “just before September”.

Song lyrics like that are fine, I don't think you should concern yourself with them.  August wouldn't scan. You can't say "nobody would ever say" in this case, because they're not, they're singing it. In a song. 

I always see people getting het up about that Oasis lyric "Slowly walking down the hall, faster than a cannonball" as if it's some massive mistake and they must dunk on it. 

Actually, this is my minor annoyance, people picking apart the logic of song lyrics.

Oasis is probably a bad example there, as Noel himself has come out and said he doesn't know what half his lyrics are about; they just scan and sound good.

Alexandra Burke's line "drip-dropping way down low" makes me ill, for some reason.

But that's my point? I don't think it's genius. I think it's a pop lyric.

For the most part I agree with this but for some reason it does bug me specifically when people Yoda their lyrics in order to make them rhyme. It's definitely irrational but for some reason it's just not pleasing to my ear. It somehow breaks my immersion.

I like taking apart Oasis lyrics mainly because I hate them and they're fucking shit. But if you take that approach with everyone you couldn't enjoy bangers like this.

And a prisoner is being transferred between then. 

And they're being transported by G4S. Guaranteed jailbreak.

The lyric that has always annoyed me the most for some reason is from Jailbreak by Thin Lizzy. 
 

“Tonight there’s gonna be a jailbreak. Somewhere in this town”

Probably the jail most likely, Phil. 

Maybe multiple escapes, or he's actually being interviewed about it. A big half Guyanese Irishman in the 70's. He's getting hauled in. 

I love Phil Lynott, a superb man.
