I ain't afraid of no ghost
Ooh, I hear it likes the girls

Misrhymed Song Lyrics:

"The Other Woman"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
My life was fine
Til she blew my mind
Why They're Misrhymed:
The rhyming is underwhelming. I guess to be played on the radio he had to say 'mind.' Not that what she was really blowing would have rhymed either.
Submitted by: Princess J
"The Other Woman"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
Now I hate to have to cheat
But I feels better when I sneak
Why They're Misrhymed:
After a pathetic attempt at poetry, I wonder if Ray has any women at all.

Bad Grammar in Song Lyrics:

"Ghostbusters"
The Lyrics:
I ain't afraid of no ghost.
Why:
Clear double negative. He's essentially saying "I'm afraid of a ghost". (Note: "Ain't" is actually a contraction for "am not", so it's used correctly here.)
Submitted by: Brian Kelly
"The Other Woman"
The Lyrics:
Has anybody else out there, ever fell in love (fell in love) with the other woman
Why:
The helping verb "has" requires that the past participle, "fallen", be used.

Song Lawsuits:

"Ghostbusters Theme Song"
Acording to his Behind the Music interview Huey Lewis and the News saw the video for Ray Parker Jr's song Ghostbusters and determined that the bass lines sounded too much like a sped up version of his song I Want A New Drug. Huey wasn't offended by the fact that Ray Parker Jr had ripped them off but they were offended that their song was bought and sold. The result was that Huey Lewis and his record label sued for copyright infringement and royalties which they won.

TV and Movies Mentioned in Lyrics:

"Ghostbusters"
The Lyrics:
Ghostbusters!
Why:
Shouted throughout the song, also the title, and of course written for the movie. Better examples for this section are when a song isn't written for a movie.
