I thought Ariana Grande was singing 'Break a leg' in that 'Thank U, Next' song.

When I was about 10 I thought the bit in Smells Like Teen Spirit when Kurt Cobain sings "her denial" was "ruddy Nile".  I kind of wish it was.

"roger taylor! roger taylor!" somewhat inexplicably at the end of the version performed on 'the word', aeons ago. I was there that night. jo whiley had booked them on a whim. good whim.

Any song that features 'the rain' can be substituted with 'Lorraine'

The Cult

Here comes Lorraine
I love Lorraine

The Beatles

If Lorraine comes
They run and hide their heads
They might as well be dead
If Lorraine comes
If Lorraine comes

Adele

“I set fire to Lorraine, watched her burn”,

I can’t stand Lorraine, at my window.

Here comes Lorraine again
Falling on my head like a memory
Falling on my head like a new emotion

Also Paul Simon's 'You can call me Al' - I always thought the song was about a fellah called Eddie. 'Eddie when you can call me, you can call me aL'. I THOUGHT IT WAS A SONG ABOUT HIM MEETING HIS BODYGUARD FOR THE FIRST TIME AND TALKING ABOUT HIS LIFE.
It’s not Eddie? What the fuck?

Falling on my head like a new emotion

Take me in, dry Lorraine, Lorraine Lorraine,
Lorraine, Lorraine, Lorraine now.
