Girl, I'm gonna make you swim
Original Lyrics:
Girl, I'm gonna make you sweat
Story about this misheard lyric by: Cody Finke: I think this comes to mind because people really want to swim.
"Gimme Some Lovin'," Spencer Davis Group
Misheard Lyrics:
Been a hard day nothing went too good.
Now I'm gonna relax, buddy everybody shout.
And I'm so bad baby, so bad baby.
I want you to gimme some loving.
Gimme some loving.
Gimme some loving.
Original Lyrics:
Been a hard day nothing went too good.
Now I'm gonna relax, buddy everybody should.
And I'm so glad we made it, so glad we made it.
You got to gimme some loving.
Gimme some loving.
Gimme some loving.
Story about this misheard lyric by: Wisnu Aji: How do you feel why Steve Winwood so bad he made it? Don't know anymore. I change it to more second-person pronoun than its original lyrics. About this song: There are two different recording. The original Fontana version, which is the "master" take of the song, differs in several respects from the version subsequently released in the United Artists, being slower, lacking the "response" backing vocals in the chorus, some percussion, and the "live-sounding" ambience of the United Artists single. These additional overdubs, and the 'tweaking' of the recording's speed to create a brighter sound, were the work of producer Jimmy Miller, who remixed the song for its United Artists release. (The United Artists version has more often been used on reissue CDs, even those coming from Europe.) The single features the sound of the Hammond B-3 organ, which was previously used by Deep Purple in their recordings and was sampled by Rush by using synthesizer. "Gimme Some Lovin'" was peaking at #2 on the UK Singles Chart and at #7 on Billboard's Pop Chart and ranking #247 on Rolling Stone's "500 Greatest Songs of All Time". It was written by Steve Winwood, Spencer Davis, and Muff Winwood, although solely credited to "Steve Winwood" on the Fontana label.

Upbeat Songs With Depressing Lyrics -> Latest Entries

"Paint It Black" by The Rolling Stones
The Lyrics:
I see a red door and I want to paint it black,
No colors anymore, I want them to turn black.
Why:
This whole song has a Spanish/Hindu/Middle Eastern feel (with the sitar and castanets); it is a song about a lost girlfriend.
