Quotes:

Critics don't buy records. They get 'em free.

I may be helping to bring harmony between people through my music.

I'm a musician at heart, I know I'm not really a singer. I couldn't compete with real singers. But I sing because the public buys it..

Mona Lisa? What kind of title is that for a song?

The people who know nothing about music are the ones always talking about it.

Story about this misheard lyric by: G.T.

My dad used to listen to oldies like Nat King Cole, and I misheard the lyrics. When I was in college, someone at work was talking about Route 66, and when I chimed in about "room 66", they looked at me like I was from another planet. "Definitely changes the whole meaning of the song," was the comment from one guy...

Song Parody Fragments:

"(It's Only A) Paper Moon"
Better Lyrics:
Barack is only a big buffoon
With a failed Presidency
Lives in a world of make-believe
Ignores economy (responsibility)…
Original Lyrics:
It is only a paper moon
Sailing over a cardboard sea
But it wouldn't be make-believe
If you believe in me

"The Child's Play Christmas Song"
Better Lyrics:
Chet's nuts roasting on an open fire
Chucky biting off his nose
Songs of slaughter being sung by a choir
And Tiff dressed like an Eskimo
Original Lyrics:
Chestnuts roasting on an open fire
Jack Frost nipping at your nose
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir
And folks dressed up like Eskimos

Inappropriate Song Lyrics:

"Too Young"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
And then, someday they may recall

We were not too young at all.
Why They're Inappropriate:
In gereral, I've always liked this song. But in these lines is a case of using a word inaccurately in order to make a rhyme. The whole song generally is about "they" (perhaps the parents of the young lovers) thinking the lovers were too young to know the meaning of love. In these lines, the singer contemplates that maybe someday "they" will finally recognize or acknowledge (for the first time) that the lovers in question really weren't too young. Trouble is, that isn't what "recall" means. "Recall" means to recollect something that one was previously aware of, not to recognize or acknowledge something for the first time.

Dated Song Lyrics:

"Route 66"
The Dated Lyrics:
Get your kicks on Route 66.
Why They're Dated:
No doubt the most fabled highway route in U.S. History, U.S. Route 66 stretched from Chicago to Los Angeles. But now U.S. 66 per se no longer exists, nor does any other single route number traverse the same legendary route. To travel the same general corridor on today's modern highways means following Interstate 55 from Chicago to St. Louis, then Interstate 44 from St. Louis to Oklahoma City, then Interstate 40 from there to Barstow, California, then Interstate 15 and/or 215 from there to San Bernardino or Ontario, and finally Interstate 10 from there on to Los Angeles. That combination of routes could scarcely be the basis ot a similarly catchy song!
