Dodgy Lyrics (or dodgy ears)

My car has a tape recorder and I only actually own three tapes, one of which is a tape of Libyan Belly Dancing music. But one of those tapes is Sisters of Mercy - First and Last and Always, one of the best albums of my childhoold. But one of the songs, No Time to Cry, seems to have Andrew Eldritch singing "No time for Latte", which isn't particularly goth, is it?

Reminds me of Madonna's Erotica, which sounds exactly as if she's singing 'Bill Oddie, Bill Oddie, Put your hands all over my body." (See this video on Rathergood.com for proof).

Rathergood.com have got a couple of other funny dodgy lyric videos, including: Simply Red, Simply Red (again), the Beatles and Pavarotti.

I know what Eldritch means; I often grab a macchiato when I'm in a hurry. I don't feel that it need necessarily interfere with my goth credentials.

Those are excellent.

Personally, I've always thought that Sister Sledge are singing, "Just let me staple the vicar," in the first verse of 'We Are Family'. You may mock, but you'll check it out, and you'll see that I'm right.

Then there's the immortal Hendrix tune Purple Haze, in which Jimi sings "'scuze me, while I kiss this guy"...
