Bad songs/lyrics

Postby solesearching » Mon Feb 07, 2005 5:52 pm

While I was driving home today I was flipping through the radio stations, I left the dial in place for a few seconds while I lit my cigarette and this little gem was playing.

It's by Nickleback, I had no idea who they were til I did a search for them on BN.com.

I like your pants around your feet
And I like the dirt that's on your knees
And I like the way you still say please
While you're looking up at me
You're like my favorite damn disease

And I love the places that we go
And I love the people that you know
And I love the way you can't say No
Too many long lines in a row
I love the powder on your nose

And now I know who you are
It wasn't that hard
Just to figure you out
(Now I did, you wonder why)

And now I know who you are
It wasn't that hard
Just to figure you out
(Now I did, you wonder why)

I like the freckles on your chest
And I like the way you like me best
And I like the way you're not impressed
While you put me to the test
I like the white stains on your dress

I love the way you pass the check
And I love the good times that you wreck
And I love your lack of self respect
While you're passed out on the deck
I love my hands around your neck

And now I know who you are
It wasn't that hard
Just to figure you out
(Now I did, you wonder why)

And now I know who you are
It wasn't that hard
Just to figure you out
Now I did, you wonder why
Why not before, you never tried
Gone for good, and this is it

I like your pants around your feet
And I like the dirt that's on your knees
And I like the way you still say please
While you're looking up at me
You're like my favorite damn disease

And I hate the places that we go
And I hate the people that you know
And I hate the way you can't say No
Too many long lines in a row
I hate the powder on your nose

And now I know who you are
It wasn't that hard
Just to figure you out
(Now I did, you wonder why)

And now I know who you are
It wasn't that hard
Just to figure you out
Now I did, you wonder why
Why not before, you never tried
Gone for good, and this is it

Now I am not easily offended or anything like that but something about this song made me really angry. I'm all for a song that deals with sex but in a tasteful and sexy way. The overtly sexual message in this song is more of a turnoff than a turn on.
How lovely and how doomed this connection of everyone with lungs.

Run Joey Run

Daddy please don't, it wasn't his fault, he means so much to me
Daddy please don't, we're gonna get married...just you wait and see.

She called me up, late last night, she said Joe, don't come over
My dad and I just had a fight, and he stormed out the door
I've never seen him act his this way, my God, hes going crazy
He says he's gonna make you pay, for what we've done, he's got a gun, so

Run Joey Run Joey Run
Daddy please don't, it wasn't his fault, he means so much to me
Daddy please don't, we're gonna get married...just you wait and see.

I got in my car and I drove like mad, till I reached Julie's place
She ran to me, with tears in her eyes, and bruises on her face
All at once, I saw him there, sneaking up behind me, WATCH OUT!
Then Julie yelled, he's got a gun, and she stepped in front of me
Suddenly, a shot rang out, and I saw Julie falling
I ran to her, I held her close, when I looked down, my hands were red,
and heres the last words Julie said...

Daddy please don't, it wasn't his fault, he means so much to me
Daddy please don't, we're gonna get married.....aaahhh..ahhhh
ahhhh....ahhhhh

Run Joey run Joey run Joey run Joey run Joey run

The first time I heard that Nickelback song I wanted to throw up. It is so disrespectful, demeaning, belittling, yet she sets herself up for it and comes back for more. I knew girls like that in high school, which is really sad.

Basically that song is just an illustration of the human disease that is ruining the earth. But that's another rant for another day...

And the record company had problems with wanting to release Flaming Red... Please, look at all this shit on the radio! Hello!
It's the same old thirst for more
Until they put you in the dirt

You saw me through a keyhole
Of a door that I kept locked
But I decorate the threshold
Just in case you knocked

I'm glad I'm not the only person that detests this song!

I also hate this one too - so much that the radio has to be switched off or the station changed when it comes on:

Nasty Girl:

"Do it.
Whoo, Little nasty girl
(Yo man, see that??)
Damn!

Yo Yo Yo Yo
Hey girl I like your flava

Must be coffee by the way you shakin your perk-u-later
I'm the smooth operator
Hot mommy motivator

Gettin more dough then bakers
Rim's spinnin like I knew your break is
You got it all give me a call

Hey ma now I won't chase ya
Sweetheart ignore them haters
Let's have some fun
Bittys' got me on the run
Come on girl get this paper

Well honey (Whatcha got Mr. Mans)
I got a lot of money (I don't see no keys in my hands)
Could you be my nasty girl
And let me do that dirty dance witchu (If you want just give me money)
Mommy (Ooo Whee Poppi)
Shake that sexy body (Do you like what you see?)
I just wanna nasty girl
Now tell me is that nasty girl you? (I can love you long time)

I'm in the Escalade, you in the Navigator
You talkin dirty wanna serve me in the elevator
Wanna give it to me now not later
Mommy's body was a dime, can't hate her
What a brother gonna do when the bitty rolls through
Who's lookin just like Jada
We hit the elevator
Of course there's always haters
But it didn't matter yo
We were puttin on a show
Free for all your spectators
Mommy threw it like a champ (Yo wait up)
Yo i didn't even know her name (What!?)
Bitty's opened up your eyes
Haters better recognize
That Nitty got this playa

Well honey (Whatcha got Mr. Mans)
I got a lot of money (I don't see no keys in my hands)
Could you be my nasty girl
And let me do that dirty dance witchu (If you want just give me money)
Mommy (Ooo Whee Poppi)
Shake that sexy body (Do you like what you see?)
I just wanna nasty girl
Now tell me is that nasty girl you? (I can love you long time)

I gotta pick my date up
To dinner I'ma take her
Last time we sexed I had her crawlin like an alligator
She just came from jamaica
The land of booty shaka's
Her names Candy
Give it to her nasty
Sometimes I even taste her
I'm here right now she's dressed up
Hourglass shape, long hair, makeup
Lookin downtown, she said right now "I want it now, I'm straight up"
We're standin face to face, uh
I knew right where to take her
That private room called the bathroom
Uh oh, here's comes the waiter

Well honey (Whatcha got Mr. Mans)
I got a lot of money (I don't see no keys in my hands)
Could you be my nasty girl
And let me do that dirty dance witchu (If you want just give me money)
Mommy (Ooo Whee Poppi)
Shake that sexy body (Do you like what you see?)
I just wanna nasty girl
Now tell me is that nasty girl you? (I can love you long time)

East coast
West coast
Worldwide
North side
South side
Let's ride
Let's party all night
Nasty girls come inside

Honey (Whatcha got Mr. Mans)
I got a lot of money (I don't see no keys in my hands)
Could you be my nasty girl
And let me do that dirty dance witchu (If you want just give me money)
Mommy (Ooo Whee Poppi)
Shake that sexy body (Do you like what you see?)
I just wanna nasty girl
Now tell me is that nasty girl you? (I can love you long time)"

Who writes this shit? And why do people encourage it?

Ewwww....This thread is quickly reminding me why I take a CD with me everywhere I go, why I quit listening to the radio. Perverts and chauvinists, the whole bloody lot of them!

I haven't heard the Nickelback song. Whenever I hear that guy's voice, I change the station. I don't like his lyrics or the sound of his voice. Both are just irritating.
I can't believe that there are people who like any of the above songs.

Nickleback is popular in Europe. Most people here don't understand the lyrics, just like the sound of something. I heard Nickleback is like one guy or something?

Nickelback absolutely sucks ass. Every song of those sounds the same. You can sing the chorus of their first big hit over the chorus of any of their other songs. It's ridiculous, and I agree, the song is pretty disturbing, and I suppose one could think they were artistically exploring abusive relationships from the perspective of the abuser, but . . . . . . it's Nickelback and I think the truth is that they're just no good.


~Matt
The meteorite is the source of the light
And the meteor's just what we see
And the meteoroid is a stone that's devoid
Of the fire that propelled it to thee
And the meteorite's just what causes the light
And the meteor's how it's perceived
And the meteoroid's a bone thrown from the void
That lies quiet in offering to thee

MIDNIGHT CHOIR (Mogen David)
Larry Gatlin And The Gatlin Brothers Band

The doors to the mission open at seven
And the soup will be ready about nine
Right now its six-thirty, they're ragged and dirty
They standin' and sittin', and layin' in line
First they'll do a little singin', then hear a little preachin'
And get saved for the 3rd time this week
A bowl of soup later and a pat on the shoulder
And by midnight, they're back on the street.

They walk to the corner of 4th street and Broadway
Then take the first alley on the right
One of them asks a stranger, how 'bout a hand
And he gives 'em one finger at a time
Then they spot an old buddy, with a bottle of heaven
Then pass around what means everything
One bottle for four, thank God, someone scored
And now the Midnight Choir starts to sing.

Will they have Mogen David in heaven
Dear Lord, we'd all like to know
Will they have Mogen David in heaven, Sweet Jesus
If they don't, who the hell wants to go?

Ok, so I think this song was a repressed memory and I was lucky enough to remember it this morning over my cup of coffee.

Now, let me set the scene. Imagine being 10ish and taking a family trip to your cabin up north (five hours away). Now imagine your dad popping in a tape telling you that you have to hear this song. Ok so once was bad enough but imagine you dad going "What was that? Oh you want to hear Feed Jake again? No problem" this song was literally on the whole five hour trip except for the short reprieve of the rewind button. I'd call this the closest I have ever been to insanity. The funny thing was that my dad didn't care for the song either but he likes to torture me with bad country music, another shining example would be the song Chatahoochie which, for a week he used as my wake up call. So, anyway, here is another gem.

Feed Jake- Pirates of the Mississippi

I'm standing at the crossroads in life, and I don't know where to go.
You know you've got my heart babe, but my music's got my soul.
Let me play it one more time, I'll tell the truth and make it rhyme,
And hope they understand me.

Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
If I die before I wake, feed Jake, he's been a good dog,
My best friend right through it all, if I die before I wake,
Feed Jake

Now Broadway's like a sewer, bums and hookers everywhere.
Whino's passed out on the side walk, doesn't anybody care.
Some say he's worthless, just let him be.
But I for one would have to disagree.
And so would their mamas.

Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
If I die before I wake, feed Jake, he's been a good dog,
My best friend right through it all, if I die before I wake,
Feed Jake

Now If you get an ear pierced, some will call you gay.
But if you drive a pick-up, they'll say 'No, you must be straight.'
What we are and what we ain't, what we can and what we can't,
Does it really matter?

Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
If I die before I wake, feed Jake, he's been a good dog,
My best friend right through it all, if I die before I wake,
Feed Jake
If I die before I wake, feed Jake (x3)

I appologize if anyone likes this song...it's just not my taste.
How lovely and how doomed this connection of everyone with lungs.
