As a writer, you’re always listening to music while you work, or at least I do. And with most people, I don’t catch every single word said in the first few listens. Sometimes, it will take me forever to figure out one word or what an artist meant when they said something in a song. then there are other times when you listen to a song that you’ve heard a million times and hear something brand new.
Someone in the office had their cheesy ’90s playlist on full blast and the song that caught my attention was Snap’s “Rhythm Is A Dancer.” As corny as the song is considered to be now, back then, it was the business. And don’t try to act like you didn’t bust a move to it at least once. Anyway, one of the lines is “I’m serious as cancer when I say rhythm is a dancer.” My reaction to that was, “That just ruined my listening experience. Why the hell do I want to think about cancer when I’m on my cheesy ’90s music swag?!” The subsequent conversation with my co-workers prompted me to look at other songs that were great but had one terrible line to mess it up. Peep some of the greatest songs with terrible lyrics below. Add your own in the comments.
