Musical "Catchphrase" (Or When You Can't Think Of A Sentence Without Singing It Maybe You Should Find Something Else To Listen To!)
Recently I have been trying to write something which involves a trip back into my memory banks.  In order to help me do this I have been listening to a particular song which helped me feel the same emotions which I connect with what I have been trying to write.

There is only one problem with this.  My brain has now decided the appropriate lyrics of the song should be spoken with a Dutch accent (which I can do) in a voice which sounds like the speaker has just swallowed a lorry load of gravel (impossible for me).  What makes it worse is the tune of the lyrics matches the words exactly;-

"Loneliness is what I feel, but I'll tell you the morning after.  There is still a wound to heal, but I'll tell you the morning after.  I don't know if I will stay, but I will tell you the morning after.  If its real or just a play, I will tell you the morning after".  "Morning After" by City To City.

There are some other rather odd lyrics from different songs which you would not necessarily hear in normal conversation - the only one I can think of right now is "I'm backing out of the situation with my back against the wall" from "Please Sister" also by City to City.

My favourite lyrics are the ones you can fit to two completely separate tunes (with minimum tweaking) - There is a line in "Angel Eyes" by WetWetWet which could have come from "Greased Lightening" - and not just because they both mention "Automatic" and "Systematic" either.

Speaking of songs with different tunes - I recently heard a cover of "500 Miles" by The Proclaimers which actually made me like it because it sounded so different with a completely different tune and "ear feel".
