In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida -- Iron Butterfly

 

Apoarently, as the story goes, the song was originally written as In the Garden of Eden, but the Iron Butterfly organist / vocalist who wrote the song (Doug Ingle) was so drunk the first time he tried to sing it for one of his bandmates, that it came out In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida instead, and that just stuck.

Stop Stop Stop by The Hollies:

 

"Stop, stop, stop all the dancing
Give me time to breathe
Stop, stop, stop all the dancing
Or I’ll have to leave…"

 

For some reason, I always heard this as "Stop, stop, stop, Paula Nancy..." but thought it was a more exotic version of those names combined. 

 

I also never realized they were playing a banjo in this. I just assumed it was some Middle Eastern stringed instrument like an oud or a saz. Because who dances to a banjo with cymbals on her fingers, a ruby glistening from her navel, and bells on her feet that go ting a ling a linging?

 

I also never caught the last part where he basically loses it and assaults her (every week!):

"Now I hold her, people are staring, don’t know what to think
And we struggle knocking over tables, spilling all the drinks. 

Can’t they understand that I want her? Happens every week. 
Heavy hand upon my collar throws me in the street."

 

Sheeesh! And growing up I thought this was just a nice little song!

IT WASN'T UNINTELLIGIBLE, BUT "PURPLE SKY " BY HENDRIX WAS OFTEN MISQUOTED:" EXCUSE ME WHILE I KISS THE SKY" WAS OFTEN QUOTED AS "EXCUSE ME WHILE I KISS THIS GUY". THEN THERE WAS "BORN A REBEL("BARNEY RUBBLE") BY TOM PETTY!

Remember the commercial where people are listening to Elton John sing Rocket Man, and trying to figure out the words -

 

Rocket man, burning out his fuse up here alone
