Pinky Cubans

For years now, when we listened to the 1994 Morrissey hit single “Now My Heart Is Full”, I thought the song’s refrain referred to “Pinky Cubans”. I was saddened to recently find out that alas, the line is “Pinkie, Cubitt”, referring to characters in Graham Greene‘s novel Brighton Rock.

Apparently misheard lyrics are a cottage industry, as a website called “Kiss This Guy”, has a huge database of them.

This isn’t exactly new, there quite a few parodies, among them POPE (picture of the Pope), SNOB (right wing Obama mashup), GROPE (Bill Clinton), and DOPE (a comment on Obama’s supposed drug experimenting).

So the next question: will Hilary get the Veep nod?

Journey has a new tiny lead singer from the Phillipines!


From Wikipedia:

In December 2007, after briefly considering the lead singer of a Virginia-based tribute band, Journey hired Filipino singer Arnel Pineda of the cover band The Zoo after Neal Schon saw him on YouTube singing covers of Journey songs…(!)

This guy sounds just like old Steve Perry too. Weird.
