Story about this misheard lyric by: Jeff Donovan

Back in the 1970s I often wandered though the Canadian wilderness with this song playing in my head, and every time I crossed a stream, I would say, "Yup, there goes a stream with memory to spare!" Not sure what it meant, but boy, it sure was deep!

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"Love The One You're With"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
But if you can't be with the one you love
Honey, love the one you're with
Why They're Nonsensical:
First off, these two lines completely contradict each other. Second, why should you have to fall in love with a complete stranger just because your spouse isn't around? (S)he could be an ax murderer, for all you know.

Upbeat Songs With Depressing Lyrics:

"Ohio"
The Lyrics:
Tin soldiers and Nixon's coming
We're finally on our own
This summer I hear the drumming
Four dead in Ohio
Why:
"Ohio" by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young (written by Neil Young) has an upbeat tempo, but deals with a very unpleasant event in U.S. history. The song itself was released only three weeks after the event it refers to: The killing of four students during a protest (therefore using their Constitutional rights) at Kent State University in Ohio by National Guardsmen while the students were protesting President Nixon's plans to extend the Vietnam War into Cambodia on May 4, 1970.

Lyrics Alliteration:

"Helplessly Hoping"
The Lyrics:
Helplessly hoping her harlequin hovers nearsby Awaiting a word Gasping at glimpses of gentle true spirit ... Wordlessly watching he waits by the window and wonders at the empty place inside Heartlessly helping himself to her bad dreams he worries ... Stand by the stairway you'll see something certain to tell you confusion has its cost Love isn't lying its loose in a lady who lingers saying she is lost
Why:
The whole song is a mass of alliteration!
