MISHEARD LYRICS 80S STYLE #4

TOP SINGING THE WRONG LYRICS

As a giant Madonna fan I'm very embarrassed to say I had the words for Poppadom Preach wrong for years...I thought it was Poppacorn Peach (popcorn that tasted like peaches, yum).


My Pappa don't preach about pop corn that tastes like peaches
Gloria Estefan has some pretty fun songs that make you wanna move your bod. I also thought they were great to do rhythmic gymnastics to. Especially that song Ribbon Is Gonna Get Ya, b/c in my rhythmic gymnastics class we use a ribbon when we move. The lyrics and movements mesh so well together!
Rhythmic Gymnastics staple song - RIBBON IS GONNA GET YOU!

ZZ Top always dressed in those classy suits...yet, they had big beards! I'm not sure how to interpret the lyrics of their song Shark Dressed Man - perhaps it has to do with their beards. Underneath those swell suits they were crazy party animals (like sharks) and ate a lot of fish! That is the only explanation I can think of.

MORE VAN HALEN MEMES | 1980s ROCKED

80s VANHALEN MEMEs

Van Halen in the early 80s. What a great sentence. It conjures up images of giant rock concerts, giant rock egos, a superstar guitar player, an over the top frontman, a bass player (sorry Anthony).


Eddie Van Halen
 Did you know that when they were young Eddie was the drummer in the family and Alex played guitar!

Eddie played drums!

Now he plays guitar

Sometimes he plays too hard


He plays with passion

Apparently the band's first name was Genesis ... but, when they realized that name was taken (and that band became pretty famous) they chose Mammoth! That didn't last long before they switched to Van Halen (boy was David Lee Roth mad about that. He wanted the band to be named the Roths).


 Apparently, Roth's Father was a prominent eye doctor who was wealthy enough to be featured on that show Lifestyles Of The Rich And Famous...no joke.




Poor Roth had it bad...or didn't have it bad...








It's because of that teacher!
