Overview


This irreverent and amusing collection consists of over 800 "misheard" song lyrics, as compiled by poet Kenneth Goldsmith, "the Napster of the malapropism [who] downloads the poetic genius of the masses as they croon to themselves in their showers"-Christian Bok. Goldsmith's renderings include "classic" misheard lyrics, such as "Inna Gadda Da Vida" ("In my gaudy Adidas baby.) as well as hundreds of others: Bob Marley singing "I shot the sheriff though I swear I was in silky pants," Jon Bon Jovi howling "Thoreau is like Ralph Emerson, Ralph Emerson is what I read." An interesting examination of the potential interpretations of sound and lyric, the book is both intriguing and hilarious, and perfect for anyone who has ever sang "She's givin me head citations." with complete conviction and abandon.
