On the Web: How to Write a Hit Song

On the Web: How to Write a Hit Song

A little while ago in the Dilbert Blog, Scott Adams was talking about hit songs, and how they pretty much have nonsense lyrics. He then asked the readers to submit lines, and a band in Germany called RIVO DREI then picked some and made a song called She Amazed Me.

The result is actually quite fun.

She Amazed Me

She had runaway eyes and marshmallow kittens.
My heart heard a dream like ten thousand mittens.

A tear in her hand
She spread deja-vu all across the land.

br:
She spinned round and round with a frog in her ear
Whispering fountains and rocks she couldn’t hear

ch:
Oh, she amazed me!
With her love, she tazed me.
Oh, she amazed me!
And it escapes me
how she outer spaced me.

Too many times I have seen the thunder
Flashes of sound, soul-rending sunder

A letter colored blue…
Now the nine bells are ringin’ and singin’ it too

br:
She spinned round and round with a frog in her ear
Whispering fountains and rocks she couldn’t hear

ch:
Oh, she amazed me!
With her love, she tazed me.
Oh, she amazed me!
And it escapes me
how she outer spaced me.

br:
Little did she know they were coming too soon,
Both those kittens ran off to the moon

ch:
Oh, she amazed me!
With her love, she tazed me.
Oh, she amazed me!
And it escapes me
how she outer spaced me.
Oh, she amazed me!
With her love, she tazed me.
Oh, she amazed me!
With splendid reprisal, she took to the sky.
My tear drops asunder. No shadow. No cry.
Apple core ostriches dancing like fairies.
And it escapes me
how she outer spaced me.
