Which song do you think has the strangest lyrics?

My guess would be The Reflex by Duran Duran:

"You've gone too far this time"
But I'm dancing on the valentine
I tell you somebody's fooling around
With my chances on the dangerline
I'll cross that bridge when I find it
Another day to make my stand
High time is no time for deciding
If I should find a helping hand

Why don't you use it?
Try not to bruise it
Buy time don't lose it

Why don't you use it?
Try not to bruise it
Buy time don't lose it

The reflex is an only child he's waiting by the park
The reflex is in charge of finding treasure in the dark
And watching over lucky clover isn't that bizarre
Every little thing the reflex does
Leaves you answered with a question mark

One of the most confusing things I've ever heard.

  • Nobody has the Beatles beat in this contest. Many people who were worried about the effect of Rock & Roll music on America's (and England's) youth were obsessed by trying to find the "hidden" meanings in each song as it came out. The Beatles fought back by releasing a song completely devoid of meaning.

    Here it is:

    "I Am The Walrus"

    I am he as you are he as you are me
    And we are all together
    See how they run like pigs from a gun see how they fly
    I'm crying

    Sitting on a cornflake waiting for the van to come
    Corporation tee shirt, stupid bloody Tuesday
    Man you been a naughty boy. You let your face grow long
    I am the eggman, they are the eggmen
    I am the walrus, goo goo g' joob

    Mister City Policeman sitting, pretty little policemen in a row
    See how they fly like Lucy in the sky, see how they run
    I'm crying, I'm crying
    I'm crying, I'm crying

    Yellow matter custard dripping from a dead dog's eye
    Crabalocker fishwife pornographic priestess
    Boy you been a naughty girl, you let your knickers down
    I am the eggman, they are the eggmen
    I am the walrus, goo goo g' joob

    Sitting in an English garden waiting for the sun
    If the sun don't come
    You get a tan from standing in the English rain
    I am the eggman, they are the eggmen
    I am the walrus, goo goo g' joob goo goo goo g' joob

    Expert texpert choking smokers
    Don't you think the joker laughs at you? (Ho ho ho! He he he! Ha ha ha!)
    See how they smile like pigs in a sty, see how they snied
    I'm crying

    Semolina pilchard climbing up the Eiffel Tower
    Elementary penguin singing Hare Krishna
    Man you should have seen them kicking Edgar Allan Poe
    I am the eggman, they are the eggmen
    I am the walrus, goo goo g' joob goo goo g' joob
    Goo goo g' joob goo goo g' joob
    Goo gooooooooooo jooba jooba jooba jooba jooba jooba
    Jooba jooba
    Jooba jooba
    Jooba jooba

  • Definitely has to be, although has many meanings this particular song, "Cat's in the cradle" by Harry Chapin. It's a 1974 Folk rock song.
    ... And the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon
    Little boy blue and the man in the moon...
    Throughout the years, this song has appeared on different shows, "The Simpsons" being one of them, three times.
    The song itself is like nails on a chalk board to me because it is just so monotonous but does hold meaning that's based on a true story of a father who didn't have time to spend with his son. The story itself is heartwarming, if you read it. I just never cared for the song. Period.
    Good luck. xx
