Story about this misheard lyric by: Z

As a photographer who traveled to poorer countries to document the conditions that some children lived and DIED in, I was quite offended by this part of the song. I certainly didn't do it for the money, as I probably made a hundredth of the "gold" that these performers did. Without us, they wouldn't have known about it to write this part of the song, but instead of thanking us, they insult us.

Upbeat Songs With Depressing Lyrics:

His blood ran as he cried No money could save him,
So he laid down and he died.
Why:
More of an Unlucky Man if he got shot and died!

Lighter Side of Serious Bands:

"Benny the Bouncer"
An obvious "B-side" to Jeremy Bender, this song functions as the calm before the storm (that is Karn Evil 9), but still turns into a great cut thanks to the up-right piano playing in one of the great English Music Hall performances this side of the last world war.
