Boaking For A Little Romarnce
It must be difficult for songwriters to come up with new ways of saying "I love you".
Sometimes they are very wide of the mark when their intention is obviously to sound sexy and romantic.
Today, I was listening to Ralph 'Soul' Jackson's brassy and brilliant cover version of Cream's Sunshine Of Your Love, when I heard this unlovely little declaration. Funny, I'd never noticed it before in the original version, but I checked and it's there, in all its 'Oh-I-Must-Buy-Shares-In-Mansize-Kleenex' glory:
"I'll stay with you darling,
I'll stay with you till my seeds are all dried up."
Hmm. That's nice, dear.
Anyone got an example of 'not as sexy as they think they are' lyrics?
ARBITRARY RULE: You can't cite Super Furry Animals': "I'm a minger, you're a minger too, so come on minger, I want to ming with you," 'cos I really like that one!
