THE STRANGEST SONGS EVER… #7
DISCLAIMER: Don’t get me wrong, some of these are songs I adore. They’re just either about strange things people don’t usually sing about, or they just don’t make any sense.
The list so far…
#10 was Elton John’s Madman Across the Water, because it makes no sense.
#9 George Harrison’s, While My Guitar Gently Weeps, because it’s about housework.
#8, today’s Strangest song is… Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves by Cher. Yes, let’s all sell our women-folk into prostitution.
Here’s one from this millennium. The awesome dance tune, proving ultimately parody-able, PSY’s Gangnam Style.
This one’s in Korean, so it’s possible the lyrics do make sense, just not to me. You can find something claiming to be an English translation here, but they make no more sense than the first three songs on my top 10 Strange Songs list.
I did google it when I first heard it and apparently it’s already a parody, poking gentle fun at the Gangnam neighbourhood’s hipsters.
From Wikipedia: According to The Guardian, PSY has waived his copyright to the music video. Although this has not been officially confirmed… The Guardian reported it was likely that PSY had simply refrained from taking legal action against parodies of his video. “Gangnam Style” is therefore a video that is “born to spawn.”
Next up… #7.
