Elton John - Greatest Hits 1970-2002 album at
Elton John's, "Can You Feel The Love Tonight"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
There's a time for everyone, if they only learn
that the twisting kaleidoscope moves us all in turn.
There's a rhyme and reason to the wild outdoors
when the heart of this star-crossed voyager beats in time with yours.
Why They're Inappropriate:
One has to wonder if the author of these lyrics knows the meaning of the term "star-crossed". the way the term is invoked here makes the last two lines above go entirely contrary to the overall upbeat and optimistic tone of this song. for "star-crossed" means doomed or ill-fated, the term being rooted (at least symbolically) in a view that fates are determined in the stars. so a star-crossed voyager is not a voyager one would want one's heart beating in time with. that would be a major bad omen, to find one's heart beating in time with that of anyone who was star-crossed. that would turn that "rhyme and reason to the wild outdoors" into a dark and foreboding rhyme and reason in nature, suggesting a premonition that one is doomed to failure, a fate entirely contrary to the overall message of the song. in fact, the first two lines above clearly seem to imply that no one is really "star-crossed".

Elton John's, "Can You Feel The Love Tonight"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
When the heat of a rolling wind
Why They're Inappropriate:
The wind does not roll, balls do or something round. It sounds like world to me, that is what I thought it was when I heard it, and wow does that give the song meaning!

Elton John's, "Honky Cat"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
They said get back honky cat
Better get back to the woods
Well I quit those days and my redneck ways
Why They're Inappropriate:
Does anyone else think it's funny that Elton John, a gay British singer known for his colorful outfits would have anything to do with 'redneck ways'?
