Story about this misheard lyric by: Wisnu Aji

This song finally playing in rock radio program for the first time! About this song: While this song, according to me, was a purely rock song, however, according to Wikipedia, it was a pop rock song because it was recorded by a pop band. There is a song of the same name recorded by Little River Band, but not popular as well. Another reason that this Per Gessle and Mats Persson-penned song was a pop rock song because it was sizable for pop and adult contemporary radio stations (topping on Billboard's Pop Chart and later runner-up on the Adult Contemporary Chart). But this song still get a rock song and later was the most-playing song on many radio stations from around the world. It also sizable for some rock and mainstream rock radio stations like Rock Channel. The song was originally released on 27 September 1988 as the second single from their second studio album, Look Sharp! (1988).

Funniest Song Lyrics:

"Crush On You"
The Funny Lyrics:
Dead flies in my scotch with ice
Why They're Funny:
Really, can I explain it? It's a riot! Next thing you know they'll say something like "I made you a cookie but I eated it". (that quote was from I Can Has Cheezburger)

"The Look"
The Funny Lyrics:
Walking like a man, hitting like a hammer, she's a juvenile scam.
Never was a quitter.
Tasty like a raindrop, she's got the look.
Why They're Funny:
Who is this chick? And why do we need so many mixed metaphors to describe her?? Maybe this song makes sense when translated into Swedish... Tasty like a raindrop?? Delicious.

Repetitive Song Lyrics:

"The Look"
The Repetitive Lyrics:
Na na na na na
na na na na na na na na na na na na na
na na na na na na na na na na
She's got the look.
Why They're Repetitive:
This happens at the end of the song. Not only is the 'na na ... na na she's got the look!' is annoying even once, but they do that line quite a few times at the end. As a matter of fact, to end the song they fade out while this is happening. Ran out of ideas I guess.

"Joyride"
The Repetitive Lyrics:
He says: 'hello you fool I love you.'
C'mon join the joyride,
join the joyride
Why They're Repetitive:
That's basically the entire chorus except in the very last line they change 'c'mon join the joyride' to 'be a joyride.'

"The Centre Of The Heart"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
What am I gonna do when I get a little excited, a little in pain?
Tell me what am I gonna say when I find the centre of my heart
is a suburb to the brain?
Why They're Nonsensical:
First off, you wouldn't sing that line if you didn't already know that the centre of your heart was a suburb to the brain, and thus you would know what you said when you found out. Second of all, what the **** is that supposed to mean anyway? I think Per Gessle is on drugs (can I say that?) or something.

Why They're Inappropriate:
If these lines are about what I think they're about, I'll give Per Gessle credit for... let's just say being intimate with this woman, but come on! Did he write this song in seventh grade?

Dated Song Lyrics:

"Harleys and Indians (Riders in the Sky)"
The Dated Lyrics:
While Marlon's on his way
Why They're Dated:
Per Gessle is singing about when he goes to heaven. This song came out in 1994, ten years before Marlon Brando died, so he is no longer on his way to heaven.

Songs That Are Banned:

"The Look"
Not the song itself, but the music video. The BBC wouldn't allow the video to be played in England because Marie Fredriksson at one point in the video is playing a guitar and then sits down on a toilet while still playing it. Apparently the BBC thought this was offensive. It's pretty ridiculous because she's fully clothed and the toilet's lid is down so she's basically using it like a regular chair. LOL.

Hidden Messages:

"Dangerous"
This song is a single from the duo's smash hit album Look Sharp! Right at the end of the song as it's fading out, if you listen carefully, you'll hear Per Gessle saying, "Due to the exceptional weakness of this song, play loud". Funny.
Submitted by: Edward
"She's Got Nothing On (But the Radio)"
Now here's a shocking one. At the beginning, you can hear Per Gessle say what sounds very much like, "What the f**k?" And at the end, he's moaning... exactly what was happening in that studio? I am suspicious of these two.
