"Every time you go away, you take a peice of meat with you." Is how a 3-year old sang it. It should be, "Everytime you go away, you take a peice of me with you" artist, Paul Young also Hall and Oats sang it.

Until, uh, last night I thought that Belle and Sebastian were singing about louvredors rather than "louvre doors:"
"Now the centre of my so called being is
The space between your bed and wardrobe with the louvre doors"
I guess I kind of pictured there being a group of louvredors (like matadors?) being in that space. It wasn't until I went to look up 'louvredor' that I realized there was no such thing.

"It's the dawning of the age of aquariums..." So I furnished my place with fresh & salt water aquariums to impress my dates. They weren't.

I thought it was "Brenda Renetti" the first few dozens times I heard that song, but after that, I figured it out, although I have to think every time I hear it.

Haha, it does sound like that too!
Ha! Those are fantastic. Poor little monkey.
I used to think (until, like, a few weeks ago) that that same line in "Michelle" started "sunday, monday..."
The Beatles' song "Michelle." I always thought the French lyrics "sont des mots qui vont très bien ensemble" were actually saying "someday monkey won't play piano song."

Wait...another one! "When a man loves a walnut" ("When a Man Loves a Woman") by Percy Sledge.
And who can forget the classic "There's a bathroom on the right" (for "There's a Bad Moon on the Rise") and "'Scuse me while I kiss this guy" (for "'Scuse Me While I Kiss the Sky")?
brenda renetti (instead of brenda and eddie in billy joel's 'scenes from an italian restaurant')
