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.

The Backstreet Boys have been a surprisingly consistent presence in our lives since the 90s. While a lot of the other boy bands faded out over the last couple of decades, The Backstreet Boys aren't afraid to keep going and bring us those pop jams we've loved for so long. I honestly can't imagine my childhood without them. Well, to be completely honest three of their CDs are actually in my car right now. I can't help it, their music is perfect for road trips!

20 Songs You Always Listened To On Your Discman That You Haven't Thought About Since

There really is no other way to put this, if you remember these songs you are definitely getting closer to 30+, than you are to 21.

12 Songs You Heard At Every Party In The 80s That You're Definitely Still Obsessed With

Music from the 80s has stood the test of time, and I'm not saying that because I grew up in that decade. The lyrics were catchy, relatable, and upbeat. They also seemed to have choreography to go with it, and we knew how to dance to them all. We definitely had our priorities straight. For example, which scenario would do you better for the long term: Receiving a perfect grade on one math test or knowing how to moonwalk for the rest of your life. The answer is intuitive. There are so many awesome songs that were played at every


11 Boy Bands You Definitely Listened To That You've Already Completely Forgotten About

Of course everyone remembers the three main boy bands that have been lifted into pop royalty. Backstreet Boys, New Kids On The Block and NSYNC are the indisputable champions of the pop universe, without any doubts. A few others managed to get a good foot hold, like Boyz II Men or even Hanson who had their own hits, but there were even more that have been totally left in the past. GiphyBoy bands basically grew on trees in the 90s. A new one would pop up every 45 minutes with one hit song before fading back into the world. Sometimes
