Bad Music Advice

Of course, the dumbest thing you can do is be gullable enough to take the advice from songs you hear on the radio. Let's explore:

10cc, The Air That I Breathe: Sometimes…all I need is the air that I breath and to love you
 That "sometimes" lasts about 5 days without water…

Stephen Stills, Love the One You’re With: if you can’t be with the one you love. Love the one you’re with

That excuse worked with the spouse in the 60s…now, not so much…

Talking Heads, Take Me to the River: Take me to the River, throw me in the water

Errr…it was a metaphor and regardless, probably not wise to throw him in just up from the class V rapids

Rolling Stones, You Can’t Always Get What You Want: You can’t always get what you want…but if you try some time, you just might find…you get what you need

Or…you don’t

Bobbie McFarren, Don’t Worry, Be Happy: Don’t worry. Be Happy
Stevie Wonder, Don’t You Worry About a Thing: Don’t you worry about a thing, sweet mama.

Oops…you missed your window…the metastasis has reached your organs…

I have to admit that I have been, "Comfortably Numb" on occasion - but that was many years ago (um ... no pinpricks were involved - mostly smoke and mirrors).

Although I did witness one idjit inject hisself into a river just above (possible) Class V rapids. Surprisingly, he survived.

Thank goodness not all of us take song lyrics literally.

@sybil-- Great post. Joey Ramone died 10 years ago. Now I wanna sniff some glue, but I don't wanna be buried in a pet cemetery.

I never understand the lyrics anyway so I rarely know what a song is about. I vaguely remember a song asking about holding a hand but then it got bit by a hungry bear and so I just hum a lot nowadays because I can pretend to know the words and no one is any wiser, well at least that is my story and I am sticking to it.

God bless.

Didn't The Hollies cover that first one? No matter. And Bruce Springsteen had the river reference first...just sayin'...

Obscure reference to "Love the One Your With" ( kinda )...Mel Blanc had a '50's recording entitled "Wild about Myself"....

The Stones were wrong...I usually get what I want...then what? It's like trying to get rid of that box ( o.r.~Phil Harris ), once you're done with it...!
GAAAAAAAAHHHH! Thanks for the Bobby McFarren earworm! Just hte mention of that song...

Reminds me of the time the "High Priestess" had a little "Sympathy for the Devil". I mean, she knew he was "No Good" and only had "A Little Bit O' Soul", heck!

You might also want to be careful if you're singing the F U song in the grocery store. It could be dangerous in front of the wrong person.

"If you can't be with the one you love, love the one you're with..."

Since I'm single and live alone, this means I'm going to have to invent an imaginary friend.

I think I'll name him Orson.

Uh oh. Are you going "country" on us?

Please, say it ain't so!

Or I might have to kill myself!

On the Stones song, they say you can't always get what you want, and that sometimes you might get what you need. Hard to argue with that really, since they aren't saying it's an every time occurrence. said...

You mean you're NOT supposed to take song lyrics literally? Oops!
