Band Name Origins:

  • Abraham Gutiérrez is right, but Ricky Martin changed his name when joined Menudo. There was a Ricky Melendez, before him, so they called him Ricky too. Submitted by: Hanna
  • His real name is: Enrique Martin Morales (IV). But since a kid everybody call him: Kiki. Kiki is not a good word in some place ("I just don't wanna be called 'p*ssy'" -he said) so when he started his solo career they decided to change "Kiki" for "Ricky" that sounds similar. Because the real short name for Enrique is Quique, not Ricky. Submitted by: Abraham Gutiérrez

Story about this misheard lyric by: Ron A

I knew it didn’t make much sense but this was all I could ever make out and that’s how I had always sung it. It took me 20 odd years before my wife casually corrected me. 😆

Song Parody Fragments:

"Livin La Vida Loca"
Better Lyrics:
Livin' la vida Lorca
Original Lyrics:
livin' la vida loca [ I don't know, I just want some college student to use this for a title on the works of Garcia Lorca. Also, this song was popular when I was a DJ. When introducing our station's news director, I'd say 'Now here's Barbara with la vida local!']

Better Lyrics:
She looks like a flower,

Funniest Song Lyrics:

"If You Ever Saw Her"
The Funny Lyrics:
She's an atom bomb
And she's waiting to blow you away
You better run for cover and pray
Why They're Funny:
It was as if they were written with the idea of a potential suicide bomber ...much before September 11th 2001.

"She Bangs"
The Funny Lyrics:
She looks like a flower but she stings like a bee
Why They're Funny:
It seems to imply that this chick has some insect powers or something, but that's likely from a literal interpretation of this line.

Repetitive Song Lyrics:

"She Bangs"
The Repetitive Lyrics:
She bangs, she bangs,
Oh baby when she moves, she moves
She floats like a butterfly And stings like a bee
Like every girl in history
Why They're Repetitive:
Somehow I doubt every girl in history has 'banged' Ricky Martin
Submitted by: Celeste
"The Cup of Life"
The Repetitive Lyrics:
Ole! Ole!
Why They're Repetitive:
This was never a very good song in the first place but this really could tick me off. I've had it with Ole! two or three times, and then that's repeated too.
Submitted by: Star Cat

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"Private Emotion"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Let your private emotion come to me
Why They're Nonsensical:
Not only is this line hilariously nonsensical but is a slight paradox. If the emotion is private then surely whomever Ricky is singing this to would be unwilling to share it with him? And I don't know, does anyone's emotion here have legs...?
Submitted by: Devil Jones

Insincere Song Lyrics:

"If You Ever Saw Her"
The Insincere Lyrics:

If he's a fool, can he be clever?

"Livin La Vida Loca"
The Lyrics:
Woke up in New York City
In a funky cheap motel

She must have slipped me
a sleeping pill
Wow! Why would you allow someone to slip you a mickey and take off?
