5 Songs That I Get Wrong Every Time

5 Songs That I Get Wrong Every Time

Once you hear a lyric wrong, there's no going back.

1. “More than a Woman” by the Bee Gees

Wrong Lyric: Bald-headed woman, bald-headed woman to me

Right Lyric: More than a woman, more than a woman to me

What Would Freud Say? Shout out to my mom for getting this one wrong, so number one here is dedicated to her. I’m thinking that Freud would probably tell her that she secretly wants to be a bald-headed woman. Mom, while you’d look pretty with any hairstyle, don’t go shaving your head, because I am so jealous of your perfect ponytail.

2. “Holy Grail” by Jay-Z featuring Justine Timberlake

Wrong Lyric: Michael Jackson’s toilet

Right Lyric: Michael Jackson's "Thriller"

What Would Freud Say: I have a feeling that Freud would probably think that I really, really want to see Michael Jackson’s old bathroom—because jeez, it’s got to be like a palace, right? Also, it kind of goes to show how much of his music I actually listen to if I’m putting the word “toilet” with Michael Jackson.

3. “Little Talks” by Of Monsters and Men

Wrong Lyric: Cause though the truth may vary/ This s--t will carry out, bodies safe to short

Right Lyric: 'Cause though the truth may vary/ This ship will carry our bodies safe to shore

What Would Freud Say: There’s a lot that Freud would have to say about this one…I sort of botched it. Starting out with “this s--t will carry out,” I think that this blasts my whole “I’m a positive thinker” thing. If I heard it as “this ship,” then I might see the whole song as being positive—about finding inner strength and determination to perceiver. My alternative of “this s--t” obviously shows that I think that life’s going to suck and that it’s going to suck because crap is always going occur in our life. The second part, “our bodies safe to short,” obviously is playing on my sadness of being a short person. At 5’2 and a half (that half really matters), I’m super conscious of my shortness. Obviously, Freud would tell me that my mind is telling me through this song that I’m short and that it won’t stop, so I need to get used to it.

4.“Mony Mony” by Billy Idol

Wrong Lyric: Ride your pony po-po-pony

Right Lyric: I love you Mony mo-mo-mony

What Would Freud Say: Obviously, Freud would tell me that Billy Idol was trying to tell me through song to ride the miniature horse, Nicky, that my grandparent’s need to own. I have no idea who Billy Idol was singing about (who’s Mony and why does he love him or her?), but even after hearing it, I still think the lyrics are most definitely “ride your pony,” because that makes total sense.

5. “It’s Time” by Imagine Dragons

Right Lyric: “So this is what you meant/ When you said that you were spent” … “It's time to begin, isn't it? / I get a little bit bigger but then I'll admit / I'm just the same as I was / Now don't you understand/ That I'm never changing who I am”

What Freud Would Say: I’ve recently become an Imagine Dragons fan, and “It’s Time” isn’t the only song that I confuse the lyrics on; “Polaroid” is another one and there’s a lyric in it that is, “I’m a midnight talker,” and every time I sing—off-key and loudly—“I’m a midnight taco.” Don’t ask why, because I don’t even like tacos. Anyway, with “It’s Time,” I’m not really screwing up the song lyrics as much as I’m screwing the concept. Freud would probably tell me I’ve got a dirty mind and that I read way too many romance novels, because when I listen to this song I’m totally not hearing what they mean, and it's not something you’d talk about in front of your grandma…if you get what I’m saying.

50 Quotes from the Best Vines

If you're picturing the vines in your head, you're doing it right

In 2017 we had to say goodbye to one of the best websites to ever roam the internet: Vine. In case you have been living under a rock since 2013, Vine was -(sad face)- a website and app that took the internet and the app store by storm in Winter 2013. It contained 6-second videos that were mostly comedy- but there were other genres including music, sports, cool tricks and different trends. Vine stars would get together and plan out a vine and film it till they got it right.

It was owned by Twitter and it was shut down because of so many reasons; the viners were leaving and making money from Youtube, there was simply no money in it and Twitter wanted us to suffer.

The Stages Of Writing A Paper As Told By Your Fav Tv Show Characters

We've all been through the struggle

We all know that feeling, the dreadful feeling of writing that paper. It can be a paper that is as simple as 250 words or as elaborate as 1,000 words and we all still feel exactly the same. Not only do we procrastinate even starting the paper, but once we start it the procrastination doesn’t stop there. We do anything and everything to avoid focusing on the paper. The garbage needs to go out, well you’re taking it out. Your room needs cleaning, well I guess it’s the perfect time to clean. Here are the mix of feelings that we all go through while writing those papers.

When you finally start the paper after putting it off for weeks

We’ve all been there, the paper was assigned months before the due date. But you didn’t start it until the hour before its due. Heck, that’s what I did with this article.

When you’ve written the title and you realize that it’s time for a break

That title took a lot of work to write, so now it’s time for that snack break

Break is over, so now back to work

You totally lost your train of thought, so now you’re just staring aimlessly at the screen.

And break time again

You wrote one more paragraph, so now it’s time to check social media.

When you just start writing random sentences

You’re over writing at this point and just start adding random things that somewhat apply to your topic.

You’re just a few words off for the word count, so you start to add filler words

The spell check is going crazy with the little blue line because “really good” is not proper grammar. But you need to get to that word count.

When you finally finish the paper

You have don’t even dare to proof read it because you know you can improve it. It’s done and written, so it goes straight to the submission box.

Wiring papers is just another part of college, but it’s a part that we can all relate to. From biology majors to finance majors, we all approach writing papers in the same way; the wrong way. But that’s the way it will also be, so happy writing guys.
