This guy always has me creased up on the floor. If you’re not from the UK, you might have some difficulty at first with the accent, but it’s worth hanging in, he’s a very funny man:


Personally, I always had trouble with Jimi Hendrix’s Purple Haze. Like about a million other people, I thought he was singing ‘Excuse me while I kiss this guy.’ Fair enough, our Jim, away you go. No judgment here.

And for years I heard Sting’s ‘Message in a Bottle’ as ‘Massage in a Brothel.’ I wondered why he was sending out an SOS. What had they done to him?

Anyone else have trouble with song lyrics – and would you like to share?

    Ah, the power of suggestion. I’m never going to hear Ms. Dion the same way again.

    The power of suggestion is hilarious and Hot Dogs will sink the unsinkable…

    “Sicken that emulsion” (second that emotion)…… And of course that timeless classic of a love song “tonight I cellotape my glove to you”. Not forgetting “12345, Cess is working overtime”.

    Shall I get my coat?
