Posts Tagged ‘Mariah Carey’

This is yet another video-posting…another one recycled from someone else’s blog. I don’t have as much time these days as I usually do so you’ll have to excuse the laziness.

Remember back when Boyz II Men and Mariah Carey made a song together called “One Sweet Day” that was played on radio stations at least 50 times a day at its peak popularity? Back then, I was a kid who didn’t buy CD’s (I think tapes were still widely used too), had no internet, and didn’t have MTV. So I didn’t even know the title of the song for a while. But I’d hear it all the time, and I understood the chorus as:

…And I know eventually we’ll be together…ONCE WE’RE DEAD!
(instead of “one sweet day”)

In the context of the song it totally makes sense! And that’s how I understood it and sang along with it as. I think it was a very excusable mistake.

The point is, it’s very easy to misinterpret song lyrics — people do it all the time. But while my error was one line of the song, I’ve never seen it done with virtually every line of a song. Someone decided to write out the misinterpreted lyrics of Christina Aguilera’s “Ain’t No Other Man” and make it into a video, complete with visual aids:


Don’t watch the video anymore. I discovered it has greatly and rapidly diminishing returns. Well, looking up the lyrics is probably to blame…I couldn’t help it.

Looks like I’m back to posting a youtube video with every post now too. I’ve just recently started stealing whatever people have posted on their blog. Yeah, it might be lazy, but it means I don’t have to work as hard…yeah….haha (But seriously, don’t you hate it when those spam blogs do it?)

I found this video on Yoshke’s blog. He used a much more…racy line of the lyrics for his post though.

Song of the Day:
