Song Titles Not Used as Lyrics:

Song Name
Comments & Submitter Name
"After The Gold Rush"The title is never found in the lyrics. Probably the best known lyrics are in the various choruses, with lines like "Look at Mother Nature on the run / In the nineteen seventies." and "They were flying Mother Nature's silver seed / To a new home in the Sun." So a presumed title might be something like "Mother Nature On The Run" or "Mother Nature's Silver Seed". - The Quirkfetch Kid

I called up Crosby and I called up Nash,

Funniest Song Lyrics:

"(You Are) Like a Hurricane"
The Funny Lyrics:
You are like a hurricane, There's calm in your eye.
Why They're Funny:
Too bad the other one was put out in that soccer riot.
Submitted by: Jay W.
"Campaigner"
The Funny Lyrics:
Even Richard Nixon has got soul...
Why They're Funny:
While Young kind of whines his way through the song, I always listen to it just to hear that one line. On top of the ironic idea of Tricky Dick having any sort of moral check, it always makes me picture him sporting an afro singing 'Purple Haze' in a nightclub.

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"Piece Of Crap"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Bought it on the phone,
then I brought it home.
I found out in the end
it was a piece of crap.
Piece of crap
Why They're Nonsensical:
How else would you determine something is a piece a crap if you don't take it home and try it out?

Misrhymed Song Lyrics:

"Heart Of Gold"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
I've been to Hollywood,I've been to Redwood
I've crossed the ocean for a heart of gold
Why They're Misrhymed:
Mr. Florio is confused- in each verse, the idea is to rhyme the first two lines with each other, not with gold, i.e I wanna live, I wanna give, etc etc heart of gold. Although I will admit trying to rhyme Hollywood with Redwood is a bit odd
Submitted by: jungle
"Heart of Gold"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
I've been to hollywood,
I've been to Red wood,
I keep on searching for a heart of gold
Why They're Misrhymed:
The lyric should be Ive been to hollywood, I've been to Rome because the lyric should rhyme with gold not wood.
Submitted by: Mike Florio

Dated Song Lyrics:

"Dreamin' Man"
The Dated Lyrics:
In the meadow dusk, I parked my Aerostar
Why They're Dated:
Although the Ford Aerostar was very popular when this song was written, few are still in use thanks to poor quality, atrocious reliability and a tendency toward severe rusting.
Submitted by: Mr. K
"After the Goldrush"
The Dated Lyrics:
Look at mother nature on the run in the 1970's
Why They're Dated:
I don't know if he still performs this song, but the 70's ended more than 25 years ago. Note that I added the words 'more than' just so this comment won't become dated as well.

"Rockin' In The Free World"
The Lyrics:
I see a woman in the night With a baby in her hand Under an old street light Near a garbage can Now she puts the kid away, and she's gone to get a hit She hates her life, and what she's done to it There's one more kid that will never go to school Never get to fall in love, never get to be cool.
