On the way home this evening, "Rock the Casbah" came on and I realized I have absolutely no idea whatsoever what they are saying.

I admit to using search engines to look up lyrics. I remember once finding a web site that was dedicated to what people thought the lyrics were and some of them were pretty funny. Any songs come to mind?

Long cool woman.
Before the net, used to ask the singer where did he get the words, all i got was a smile.

After the net, I just smiled.

98 Rock, a long time ago used to air one of their twisted ads for Stevie Nicks; her new album; Stevie, What The Hell Is She Saying?

A close second would be anything by Ozzy. :D

practically any rap song, your choice. that's why I don't bother listening to it. I'd like to be able to sing along with what I'm hearing.

There's a couple of sites for that, I think that someone out there even coined a word for it, however it escapes me just now.
Here's one such site :)

"inna ga da da veeda"

But I think the number one unintelligible song has to be the one from the 90s, something "yellow" (I think) I have no idea what that guy is saying

Dee, honey, I have the album (on vinyl, even) and honest, they are really singing "Inna Gadda Da Vida!"

Rock analysts and critics for 40 years haven't decided on what it means. :D

I know they are saying those words (?) and that is what makes it unintelligable to me. Also, I seem to remember that the song always appeared with a sub title - In the garden of eden. I don't remember if it said that on the vinyl version.

The other song is Yellow Ledbetter by Pearl Jam.

Not a single word on that song sounds understandable.

Louie Louie by The Kingsmen. Pretty much the entire song is unintelligible.

The closest anyone has come to a rational explanation is a drug induced attempt to sing the words In the Garden of Eden.:eek:
