  • Erasure confirmed in a interview on a local station in Houston during the Spring of 1994 that they sent their demo to a record company to be reviewed, and since they had chosen 'Erasure' as their name..and without any other identifying markings, it was tossed in a bin for 'Erasure' Submitted by: melshgeek

Story about this misheard lyric by: Jason

Well, we all know Andy Bell (Erasure's lead singer) is gay. So when I first heard this, I thought he was singing about a new bloke he loves so much, he has dumped his current boyfriend.

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"Am I Right?"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
The rain comes rushing down
To resolve your love for this man in his 20s
Why They're Nonsensical:
I think this whole (gibberish) song is a prime example of why Erasure should stick to hi-energy synth pop rather than trying to do 'wistful' ballads.
Submitted by: Fletch
"Am I Right?"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Look at all the lonely people walking miles around the town
I can see the old cathedral but I had to play it down
Why They're Nonsensical:
Play what down? The cathedral? How exactly do you 'play down' a cathedral? It's just in there to make it rhyme, isn't it? I'll let them off though, for inspiring such a wonderful website!

Insincere Song Lyrics:

"River Deep Mountain High"
The Insincere Lyrics:
When I Was A Little Girl
I Had A Little Rag Doll
Why They're Insincere:
Ok, I know your trying to stick to the original lyrics, but you are a guy, not a gal.
