From Kiss' Crazy Nights "A million ways to bury you alive"
Maybe I lack imagination? I just  chuck them in a hole and start shovelling.

One pill makes you larger

And one pill makes you small

Not in 1967, Ms Slick. Also, had you known my mother, you wouldn't have been so sanguine about her sense of phamacological responsibility.

You Shook Me All Night Long.

Herewith is the ultra-sappy 'I've never been to me'

First she starts off saying she's been to Georgia and California -not  mentioning specifically which parts but that's by the by. I've been to Rhyl and Clacton but it's not worth putting in song.

Then she says 'Oh, I've been to Nice and the isle of Greece'. This is where we know she's telling utter porkies about her travel adventures. If she'd really ever been to Greece she'd know that it's bordered to the north by Albania, Macedonia and Bulgaria and to the east by Turkey.

Highway to Hell? Rather than accuse this of being a lie, I will graciously assume a minor spelling mistake and believe you are fact referring to the M62

I've just gone through a number of Bob Calvert's lyrics looking for non-sequiturs and although his musings on the nature of space are unconventional they have a disturbing tendency to be factually accurate.

I mean "Space is neither truth nor lies" isn't going to get you an astrophysics PhD but it's undeniably true...

However, I do think that Hawkwind exaggerated the capabilities of their silver machine somewhat.

Isn't that "the road to hell"?

Yes! I mean that would be an ecumenical matter!

Martin Luther King was in fact shot at 6pm . This is one of many reasons why I don't like U2.

Early evening would have fitted just as good. This is why Bonio is such a twatt!

I'm a superstitious girl, I'm the worst in the world,

Never walk under ladders, I keep a rabbit's tail.

- Life. Des'ree

 

Oh Des'ree, if you thought having a piece of toast was preferable to seeing a ghost and you are kinda paranoid, you should probably start keeping a rabbit's foot.

Still. Despite all the cacky lyrics, it's a guilty pleasure of mine... and the lyrics actually make me smile.

'Sorry seems to be the hardest word'

Well, you say it four times in the song, Elton, so it can't be that difficult.

'Anemone' is a much harder word than 'sorry' IMHO.

No, don't. I tried it and found myself branded an apostate, glued to the underside of a donkey and banished from the West Lothian Women's Institute Cake and Coffee Jamboree.

I'm a Victoria sponge man myself, boring, predictable, maybe but you can't go wrong with a classic.

I tend to struggle with the word 'trajectory', scuppered my career in ballistics.

My car was once blown into the next lane by the winds atop the M62. Severely lucky there were no cars there, or I might not be here to post this!

An offering perhaps? Maybe the unborn foetus of a camel held aloft on a burning spear. I hear they are suckers for that kind of affair.

Sir, if you are suggesting for a moment that the Women's Institute (West Lothian Branch) are some sort of pagan cabal then... oh.
