Each week the Musicheads talk about a couple releases and ask a discussion question. This week they ask:
"[...] name a song you love despite the fact that the lyrics leave something to be desired."
Some of the answers might ring true to you.
"Voodoo Chile (Slight Return) - Greatest guitar riff in the history of music! Lyrics, not so much." - Chris Sieling
"A little old school, but anyway... 'I've Got a Woman' by Ray Charles 'Under My Thumb' by the Rolling Stones In my case, it's not so much that the lyrics are silly--it's the feminist in me that does it. ('she knows a woman's place is in her home,' 'she does just what she's told')" - Susan Olson
"from another part of the musical universe (as usual) the tradtional Irish song Coal Quay Market. fast paced and fun to play and sing from a musical standpoint, but the lyrics and the story itself, no thanks. though some have called it the ultimate shopping song." -Kerry Dexter
