Story about this misheard lyric by: Wisnu Aji

When Rock Channel Radio adding "Calendar Girl" on Rock Channel's playlist for the first time, I haven't listen to this song and adding more songs like "Calendar Girl". I have listen to another songs by Hailee Steinfeld, Dream Theater, Blind Melon, etc. and later these songs being editing or trimming to more radio-friendly airplay. After that, the first time ever I hear to this song where used in a ordinary time. This song is the best! But, today I feel misheard with the song's lyrics or the song itself. When I hear to the song as Neil Sedaka (and backing vocals) sing "every day, every day, for you", other peoples who also listen to this song hear the song's lyrics as "every day, every day, of the year". Wish if Neil Sedaka is still alive in the age of modern time like 2016, he could re-recorded this song with no fade out ending and the lyrics "yeah, yeah, my heart's in a whirl" and "every day, every day, of the year" are changes to "yeah, yeah, my heart's in the world" and "every day, every day, for you" (also in the part of "April" and "December" where in April addressed to his love story and in December addressed to disaster story where Neil Sedaka lost his woman in Tsunami or other meaning where Neil Sedaka live in December). The re-recording version, Neil Sedaka repeatedly sing "I love, I love, I love my calendar girl, yeah sweet calendar girl" four times and ended with guitar's last key. For the song's vocal, I feel that Neil Sedaka's vocal is similar to the vocal of Gary Lewis & The Playboys in their greatest song, "This Diamond Ring".

Upbeat Songs With Depressing Lyrics:

"Breaking Up Is Hard To Do"
The Lyrics:
They say that breaking up is hard to do.
Now I know, I know that it's true.
Don't say that this is the end.
Instead of breaking up I wish that we were making up again.
Why:
I can't remember a more lilting tune from the 1960s than this one. But the words are a desperate plea to a girlfriend not to dump him. The last line cited above is nearly an admission of the virtual inevitability of the break-up and the desperation of the singer's wishes that things were otherwise. By the way, the singer did an original "fast" version of this and then sometime later a slow "ballad" version (same lyrics both times). What I say here came mainly from thinking about the original "fast' version. But even the slow "ballad" version is not nearly so much of a downer tune-wise as the lyrics could merit.
