Do you know that feeling when you fall in love with a song, sing it, not really understanding what the song is about. Then, when you pay a little attention, you realize that lyrics don’t make any sense! See which 10 songs are on our list!
Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen
A song that has crossed the boundaries of popularity for decades. Still, is it clear to anyone what the song is really about? “I see a little silhouette of a man, Scaramouche, Scaramouche, will you do the Fandango? Thunderbolt and lightning, Very, very frightening me.” Here’s the point is not knowing what it’s about, but continuing to sing along.
Bang Bang by Jessie J/Nicki Minaj/ Ariana Grande
“Bang bang into the room (I know you want it) / Bang bang all over you (I’ll let you have it).” Thinking about this can keep you awake all night. What is the song really about? Is it clear to anyone?
Wannabe by Spice Girl
This song is engraved in the brains of all of us and we all like to dance to its rhythm. Still, one thing bothers us. “I really, really, really wanna zig-a-zig-ah.” And we’d want it to, too, if we knew what it was all about.
Tutti Frutti by Little Richard
“Bop bopa-a-lu a whop bam boo Tutti frutti, au- rutti Tutti frutti, au-rutti Tutti frutti, au-rutti Tutti frutti, au-rutti Tutti frutti, au-rutti A whop bop-a-lu a whop bam boom. ” Huh… This is one of those songs where we can’t say that the lyrics are very intellectual and deep, right?”
Skinny Love by Bon Iver
We can’t deny that this song is gentle and beautiful, but in fact, the words of the song don’t make that much sense. “Come on skinny love, what happened here? / Suckle on the hope in lite brassieres / My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my / Sullen load is full, so slow on the split.” The metaphors in this song are very strange.
Set Fire To The Rain by Adele
Adele is a singer who pushes all boundaries with her voice. However, we cannot say the same for the lyrics. “But I set fire to the rain, Watched it pour as I touched your face, let it burn while I cried ’cause I heard it screaming out your name, your name.”
Drops of Jupiter by Train
Train with its lyrics knows how to make our heads ache from thinking. “Since the return from her stay on the moon, she listens like spring and she talks like June.” It sounds like they just put together some words to make it sound nice while singing.
Take Me To Church by Hozier
We have heard this song countless times and we know lyrics almost by heart. Still, “Drain the whole sea, get something shiny, something meaty for the main course,” is something completely incomprehensible. What will it be like when the whole sea dries up, and what does that have to do with meat? Weird.
FourFiveSeconds by Rihanna
Rihanna is someone who is highly adored by the audience. We all love her songs, but do we understand everything? “Now I’m Four Five Seconds from wildin ‘/ And we got three more days ’til Friday.” Did she mean 4 or 5 seconds or 45 seconds? We are so confused.
Radioactive by Rita Ora
“Moving on me as the world ends, this nuclear heat is a beautiful air.” Who would have thought that nuclear heat is beautiful air? If Rita Ora was near nuclear heat, she wouldn’t stay there long to sing a song.
