(4) If Song Lyrics Were Read As Prose

I don’t know whether it’s because I’m a perpetually grumpy a**hole or whether everyone else just didn’t notice but that Pharrell Williams song that everyone loved always kinda felt a bit weak to me. Like I think I said before, I have a habit of really paying attention to song lyrics where others will just bop along to the music. This very often puts me in a minority group of people that don’t like songs that most people seem to. I’m pretty sure I’m about to successfully prove that successful song lyrics can be written in five minutes flat (by a practiced lyricist) because the music is all most people hear.

So yeah, I don’t think i can say that this song makes me particularly happy. It probably won’t be turning up on one of my musical positivity posts any time soon.

As usual I’m open to suggestions, both good and bad songs are welcome.

  1. Here are a few lyrically brilliant songs that might help to counteract the pedestrian lyrics of Pharrell Williams: “Synchronicity II” by the Police; “3rd Planet” by Modest Mouse; “Once In A Lifetime” by Talking Heads; “Lost In the Flood” by Bruce Springsteen. Yes, I’m old, I know.
