You're spoiling me! But I like it.

I lost a lot out of my teenagehood but I gained a lot too. I can't really say that I lost because I got ahead of everyone as far as career and being more mature about business, even though I didn't know what the heck was going on.

I'm nervous. I usually don't get nervous for shows, but I am nervous tonight. See, I'm too honest. (laughs) I'm too honest for my own good.

And I'd like to thank Grupo Los Dinos, because when I win, they win. And when they lose...I don't know 'em.

Repetitive Song Lyrics:

The Repetitive Lyrics:
Siempre, siempre, siempre, siempre
Siempre, siempre, siempre, s
Siempre, siempre, siempre, siempre
Siempre, siempre, siempre, ay
Why They're Repetitive:
Nice song, but how many times does she have to say she'll 'always, always, always' remember him?
Submitted by: Da Phoenix

The Repetitive Lyrics:
You will always be always mine
Be mine 'til the end of time, always mine
You will always be always mine
Be mine 'til the end of time, always mine
Why They're Repetitive:
I like this song a lot, but even I think the refrain could stand a little more variety.

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"Dreaming of You"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Late at night, when all the world is sleeping
Why They're Nonsensical:
It sounds good in the song, but it's inaccurate; it's nighttime on one half of the world while it's daytime on the other, so only about half the world is sleeping at a time.
Submitted by: Da Phoenix
"Give Me One More Chance"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Please be kind
And I know you'll find
It's so easy to forgive
I know that it's hard
To forgive and forget
Why They're Nonsensical:
So which is it, easy or hard to forgive?

Darlin', I'm starting to find
Why They're Misrhymed:
Close, but no cigar.
Submitted by: Da Phoenix
"I'm Getting Used to You"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
Wasn't like me to fall in love
That's just the way that I was
Why They're Misrhymed:
Last time I checked, 'v' and 's' sounds didn't sound at all alike.

What A Band is Best Known For (aside from their music):

"Being the namesake of another performer"
Mandy Dawn Cornett must have been a fan, because she named her daughter, Selena Gomez, after this singer whose life was tragically cut short.
Submitted by: emma
"Was murdered by president of her fan club!"
This young Tex-Mex singer had the misfortune of catching her fan club's president in dishonest dealings and paid the ultimate price. Where I lived at the time, her popularity wasn't so well known and it was through her sensational and ironic demise that I first heard of her. And there must be a lot of others to whom she was unknown in her lifetime, so that her tragic death was similarly how they first heard of her.
