10 Songs From Your Childhood That Still Don't Make Any Sense

- Page 1

When you're a kid and you are bopping along to the radio you just sign the words you hear. Often times you don't know if you are singing them right, others you just have no clue what they actually mean. How many times have you gone back to your favorite pop songs and realized they were horribly filthy?


Yeah... And we sang those out loud in the car with our parents. Yikes.

Some of the songs from our childhood were just complete nonsense, so it's really no our fault for not getting it right? I mean, it was like singers expected us to understand a whole other language to get the deeper meanings. That was way too much effort, may as well just sing along and hope for the best.

There were just so many songs that had complete jibberish as the lyrics, or even just phrases that made absolutely no sense. How many of these songs do you remember belting out in your car?

1. I'm Blue - Eiffel 65


Is it an existential crisis or is it just a statement of facts? No one will ever know. There was also a lot of debates around the "Da-ba-dee-da-ba-die" parts, some people thinking it was words like "If I was green, I would die" or other equally odd options. I mean, when the original makes no sense can you blame people for trying to make it something more logical?

2. Space Jam- Quad-City DJs

How can you be welcomed to a jam? No one really knows but, "Whoop, there it is!"

3. Cotton-Eye Joe - Rednex

If you ever attended a dance in middle school, you absolutely heard this song. But what does it really mean? Who cares, it's fun to jump around to!

4. Sex and Candy - Marcy Playground

What were we listening to as kids? I mean, when we listened to these songs in the cars with our parents, did we understand what we were saying? God I hope not.

5. C'est La Vie - B*Witched

This song makes me want to grab the singers and just shake them a little while saying "WHAT DOES IT MEAN?" Why does your mummy want him to come for tea? Why!

And those songs will seem totally reasonable compared to these next ones.

We Finally Know The True Meaning Of Cyndi Lauper's Song "She Bop" And We're Mortified

I remember dancing like a robot to this song alone in my room, at my friend's house, and in public.
