Misheard Lyrics Stories:

"100 Stufen (100 Steps)"
Misheard Lyrics:
Kein Augen Lichtenstien
Original Lyrics:
Kein Augenblick ist je

Story about this misheard lyric by: Alana

I thought Peter was saying 'Kein Augen Lichtenstien' instead of 'Kein Augenblick ist je' which is somewhat translated from German to English as 'no moment is ever'. I also found out that 'Lichtenstien' does not exist as a word in the German vocabulary! [Ed.s note: Lichtenstein is small country surrounded by Germany, Austria and Switzerland. German is there native tongue.]

"Chill Of The Night"
Better Lyrics:
It's damn freezing in my room,
'Cause December's coming soon
Original Lyrics:
Now I might as well be on the moon,
'cause there's no sign of life without you
Submitted by: Alana

Funniest Song Lyrics:

"Chill Of The Night"
The Funny Lyrics:
I might as well be on the moon
Why They're Funny:
I really love both Peter and this song, and the really funny thing is that there is no warmth on the moon unless there is a fireplace somewhere!
Submitted by: Alana
"Party I'm Vulcan"
The Funny Lyrics:
Party Im Vulcan Feuerregen uber mir (two dots above the u in 'uber')
Why They're Funny:
This translates as 'Party in the volcano, fire rain on me'. It's funny because a volcano is as hot as the sun (maybe) and perhaps having fire rain on you is pretty scary!

Upbeat Songs With Depressing Lyrics:

"I Have No Desire"
The Lyrics:
Growing global revolution
Just one ultimate conclusion
I have no desire to get up in the morning
Maybe I'll retire to my room.
Why:
A danceable tune about a man who sees nothing but tragedy, and change makes it worse. So he thinks about suicide. A Nietzschean viewpoint that is promoted by Schilling.
Submitted by: Rocky
"Major Tom"
The Lyrics:
Across the stratosphere, a final message.
"Give my wife my love", then nothing more.
Why:
Lost in space. (Oh, the pain.)
