It’s Only Words

AOL just posted a link to a site called Spinner.com, on which those fine folks have attempted to document the 20 worst song lyrics ever. Understand, they’re not talking about complete songs here, merely individual lines or couplets. You can see the list by CLICKING HERE.

For me, the list consisted of some songs I knew, some that I didn’t know, some choices I agreed with, and some that I did not. The one that resonated with me the most was their #1 pick – it’s a lyric from the song “Smooth Operator” by Sade. It’s one that bothered me when I first heard the song and though I’d never mentioned it to anyone else, I felt a sense of vindication when I saw it on the list. Specifically it’s the lyric, “Coast to coast, L.A. to Chicago…” Do we even need to get out the atlas for this one?
