a parody of "Believe" by Cher
Originally recorded in 2006, it was due for an update. The original had no vocal editing, which of course made it a very rough parody of Cher. 11 years later, it finally gets a makeover. All about becoming a vampire. . . but a legendary vampire-you know the ones that can't eat garlic, be in sunlight (at all-no rings, don't turn sparkly), and can't listen to rock music (never understood that one personally--but hey) Fun little ditty. .

"One By One"
Misheard Lyrics:
You know that is free as the love of your hair
Where does it end? It's too much for me to take
We're gonna love one another 'til morning comes
This is the sweet salvation for what we've got
(Later)
Empty space is heaven sent
OR
Empty face is heaven sent
(Later)
There isn't anything no matter what you do
Original Lyrics:
You know that is free as the love you have
Where does it end? It's too much for me to take
We're gonna love one another 'til morning comes
Seek the sweet salvation for what we've done

And his face is heaven sent
(Later)
There isn't a thing, I want you do

Funniest Song Lyrics:

"Believe"
The Funny Lyrics:
Do you believe in life after love?
Why They're Funny:
Well, if we didn't, the world's population wouldn't be half of what it it today, now, would it? I mean, I love the song, but I don't see broken-hearted people disappearing into thin air all around me. Or anywhere at all, really. (I suppose I could have put this into one of the other sections, but it probably fits here the best.)
Submitted by: Robert
"Gypsies, Tramps, and Thieves"
The Funny Lyrics:
Picked up a boy just south of Mobile
Why They're Funny:
'Just' indeed! Very much South of Mobile and they would have needed to pick him up in a boat rather than a wagon, for they would have been in the Gulf of Mexico!

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"Half Breed"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
My father married a pure Cherokee
My mother's people were ashamed of me
The Indians said I was white by law
The White Man always called me "Indian Squaw"
Why They're Nonsensical:
Actually, the Cherokee are a matrilineal society who would readily accept the mother and child. The father might be asked "Who the hell are you, pale face?"
Submitted by: Melissa
"Dark Lady"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Then I remembered her strange perfume,
and how I smelled it once in my own room.
Why They're Nonsensical:
She once smelled strange perfume in her room, but that alone didn't make her suspicious?? It only struck her as significant once she realized whose perfume it was??

Dirty Song Lyrics:

"Gypsies, Tramps & Thieves"

Bad Grammar in Song Lyrics:

"The Way of Love"
The Lyrics:
When you meet a boy that you like a lot and you fall in love but he loves you not . . . etc. . . . Then what will you do when he sets you free just the way that you said goodbye to me?
Why:
Unless this song is about a lesbian whose girlfriend left her for a man (or a straight woman whose BF just came out) it makes no sense. Starting with the first line the perspective is that of Cher singing to (presumably) a woman, or women in general, about the dangers of fickle men. But at the very last minute the perspective changes to Cher talking to her ex-lover (presumably a man). Additionally, the whole song is a few poorly constructed run-on sentences. This my vote for worst song ever.

Picked up a boy just south of Mobile,

Refers to the cities of Mobile, Alabama and Memphis, Tennessee.

"Dark Lady"
The Lyrics:
The fortune queen of New Orleans Was brushing her cat in her black limousine On the backseat were scratches from The marks of men her fortune she had won Couldn't see through the tinted glass She said "Home James" and he hit the gas I followed her to some darkened room, She took my money, she said "I'll be with you soon"

Upbeat Songs With Depressing Lyrics:

"Believe"
The Lyrics:
No matter how hard I try
You keep pushing me aside
And I can't break through
There's no talkin' to you
It's so sad that you're leavin'
It takes time to believe it
But after all is said and done
You're gonna be the lonely one...ohhh
Why:
It's a pretty upbeat tune for a breakup song, Then again, the woman realizes she's better off after the breakup, so maybe it's appropriate for it to be upbeat. (In fact, this song helped me get over a bad breakup.)
