Stupid Band Names:

  • Several bands have named themselves after major cities (particularly, their home city, such as Boston and Chicago). However, this band is not from Germany; in fact, all its members are American. So unless they somehow have ties to the capital city of Germany, I don't see the point. Submitted by: Susan

Vainity Songs:

Repetitive Song Lyrics:

"Take My Breath Away"
The Repetitive Lyrics:
Take my breath away
Take my breath away
Why They're Repetitive:
That's the entire chorus. I looked up the lyrics and the phrase appreared 8 times including the title, but when I hear the song, which has three actual verses, it's the only thing I remember. With the song's slow pacing, I think the title is a description of the song's affect on the singer. (I really liked Teri Nunn & Berlin, but that was not their best. Also, pardon moi for not being humorous)

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"Take My Breath Away"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
When the mirror crashed I called you
And turned to hear you say
If only for today
I am unafraid
Why They're Nonsensical:
So imagine you're sitting in a room and someone call you into the room to say, "Hey, this mirror just crashed." Your normal response would be "What were you doing when it crashed? Why are you telling me this? Do something! Clean it up!" I guess "If only for today" works because you'll have to go to Home Depot to buy a new freakin' mirror because your house is falling apart and your girlfriend likes to watch mirrors crash. I would be very afraid if I lived in a house with crashing mirrors.
Submitted by: Andrew
"Sex (I'm A..)"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
I'm a boy!
Why They're Nonsensical:
This line doesn't make sense because lead singer Terri Nunn, a female, sings this line. Unlike other songs by this band (which feature vocals by Nunn only), this one also contains male vocals (I think it's bassist John Crawford); the man and woman alternate singing of the lines. However, in the "I'm a..." lines, the man only sings "I'm a man."

Dirty Song Lyrics:

"Sex (I'm A...)"
The Dirty Lyrics:
Almost all of them, especially Terri Nunn's lines starting with "I'm a..."
Why They're Dirty:
Title defines them all. These are what got the song banned from some radio stations when it first came out.

I was on a Paris train
