Return of O.W.N. - Week 5 = "Hold Me Tight"

This week we're discovering the little talked about classic rock band from the U.K. called "The Beatles". Don't know why they decided to name themselves after a bunch of bugs but maybe Papa Roach knows... This is a classic Beatles number but has only been parodied twice so far on Amiright.com (Maybe we'll find out why) (Comments & Parodies)

Funny Song Lyric -> Latest Entries

Weird Al Yankovic's, "Another One Rides The Bus"
The Funny Lyrics:
Ridin' in the bus down the boulevard, and the place was pretty packed.
Couldn't find a seat, so I had to stand with the perverts in the back.
(later)
We're already packed in like sardines, but we're stopping to pick up more.
Another one rides the bus (x2)
And another comes on, and another comes on,
Another one rides the bus.
Hey! He's gonna sit by you!
Another one rides the bus.
Why They're funny:
First he indicates that the bus had no seats available, yet when he gets to the chorus (refrain) he implies that the newcomers suddenly have seats to choose from? This is inconsistent. Sure, the bus can receive newcomers, even if it's packed, but where will they sit in such a situation?

Insincere Song Lyrics -> Latest Entries

Cats Can Fly's, "Lies Are Gonna Get You"
The Insincere Lyrics:
Lies are gonna get ya,
But the truth is gonna set you free.
Why They're Insincere:
Apparently, the band didn't worry about the lie in its own name! Incidentally, the whopping big cliche that "the truth will set you free" started with a saying of Jesus in the gospel of John. In the context, Jesus was addressing what he presented as a very specific truth, the truth of where salvation comes from, according to his teachings. He was not talking about truth in general. But those who have turned his saying into a runaway cliche present it out of context, as if it applied to truth in general. Ironically, among the prominent perpetrators of this runaway cliche are folks who couldn't hate Christianity more.

Insulting Song Lyrics -> Latest Entries

Better Than Ezra's, "Desperately Wanting"
The Insulting Lyrics:
Whoa the letters have dropped off, though they say you got them all
I finally figured out some things you'll never know
Why They're Insulting:
It seems rather cruel and very insulting to brag and say "I figured out some things you'll never know". Why insult a person to say you figured out "things" that the person will never know instead of confessing and sharing them? It's mean to rub it in!
