Badly visualized song lyrics


I was bored and slightly drunk the other night and decided to make doodles from song lyrics that makes me stop in my tracks and think “wait, what?”. I have a zillion other examples of this,- to be honest, lyrics often doesn’t make much sense or sound ridiculous when taken out of context or simply misheard.

Exhibit A) “Drinking freedom from a bottle to the tuna belowww” Blue October: X-Amound of Words (another gem from the same song, not yet visualized, is “So mistreated, I repeated never blessing your sneeze”). Googling the lyrics tells me the actual line is “to the tune of belong” but I visualized what it sounded like to me:


Exhibit B) “Black lemon. So Juuuicy, confuuuusing.” Black Moth Super Rainbow: Hairspray Heart. According to the lyrics I can find online it’s supposed to be “Face like a lemon, so juicy, confuse me” which it doesn’t sound like and doesn’t make any sense either.


Exhibit C) “I fought and I craved for the gravy of your soul.” Susanne Sundfør: White foxes. When I first heart it I assumed it was supposed to be “the bravery of your soul”, but it’s actually gravy. Yum, gravy.

My top 10 most listened-to songs

Someone prompted me to do a list of the songs I listen the most to on my phone. I don’t use Spotify, so I’ve estimated which songs I listen to the most at the moment and added links to the songs on YouTube. It’s not a list of my favourite songs or the songs I think are the BEST OF ALL TIMES, but all of them are pretty sweet and well worth a listen.

Sia – Elastic Heart.
Grimes – Be a Body.
Ingrid Michaelson – Mosquito.
Ben Howard – Dancing in the dark.
Beethoven – Moonlight Sonata. Not exactly this version,  but close enough.
Black Moth Super Rainbow – Hairspray Heart.
Blue October – Hate Me.
Sigur Rós – Kveikur.
Nine Inch Nails – While I’m still Here (Oneohotrix Point Never Remix – the link is to the original because I can’t find a link to the remix)
Michael Giacchino/MI5 – Kremlin With Anticipation.

PS: How rude was it to cut off NIN at the Grammys? RUDE. But at least now, Reznor has something to be righteously whiny about.

The ultimate sad music post

I love sad songs, who doesn’t??! 😀 There has actually been a recent study that showed that people that listen to sad songs feel better. I’ve been meaning to put together a song list of sad songs that I like, but I’ve put it off because I have so many songs and they range from childish pop to metal. I’ve decided to create several different sad music song lists so you can find songs that caters to that very particular sad feeling that you want to experience! Enjoy! I could go on forever adding songs (especially more Ingrid Michaelson songs) but it’s 11:15 pm and I got work tomorrow so I think this will just have to do.
