About the show
Lyrics to Go is a show about bad song lyrics. Listen in as music geeks Marc Davis, Seth Ford and guests discuss songs with terrible, misunderstood or confusing lyrics.
112 - Wild World
February 13th, 2023 | 58 mins 14 secs
cat stevens, stockholm syndrome, teat for the tillerman, wild world, yusuf, yusuf islam
If you're "letting someone go" but you're really just trying to frighten them into staying with you, how much of a shitbag are you? Probably a big one. The guys take on Yusuf Islam's Wild World... the song that may have spurned the song I'm Just A Girl by No Doubt.
111 - Young Girl
February 6th, 2023 | 48 mins 15 secs
gary puckett, gary puckett and the union gap, gaslighting, mental terrorism, the union gap, young girl
The guys go back to the Golden Age of music... The Wrecking Crew, the Wall of Sound, and the Horny Old Guy. Seth and Marc take a look at the rollercoaster of emotions that is Young Girl by Gary Puckett and the Union Gap. It's in the name!
110 - Jessie's Girl
January 30th, 2023 | 1 hr 10 mins
backstabbing, bad friendship, gary's girl, jessie's girl, mania, rick springfield, rick springthorpe
Seth and Marc call on Doubled Feature's co-host Max to ask themselves "with friend's like Rick, who needs friends?" That's right, they're taking on Rick Springfield's Jessie's Girl and all of the mania and stalking that go along with it.
109 - Pretty Fly (For A White Guy)
January 23rd, 2023 | 52 mins 59 secs
for a white guy, offspring, pretty fly, pretty fly white guy, quasi racism, the offspring
What do you get when you mix a molecular biologist, a former janitor, and some ridicule of the white middle class? Seth and Marc unfortunately find out in this week's episode where they look into the lyrics to Pretty Fly (For A White Guy)
108 - Semi-Charmed Life
January 16th, 2023 | 1 hr 26 mins
creampies, crystal meth, primus, semi-charmed life, stephan jenkins, third eye blind
Seth and Marc look into the true meaning behind one of the 90's upbeat and infection jams; Semi-Charmed Life by Third Eye Blind. Is it all as lush and catchy as it sounds or is there a terrible crystal meth addiction and some red panties hidden somewhere in there?
107 - Barbie Girl
January 9th, 2023 | 1 hr 6 mins
aqua, aquarium, barbie girl, misogyny, plastic surgery
Seth and Marc painfully comb over the lyrics to Barbie Girl which are either creepy as hell or misogynistic as hell. Throw in the terrible music video and awful voices and this one hurt.
106 - Hey Ya!
January 2nd, 2023 | 1 hr 14 mins
andre 3 stacks, andre 3000, andre 3k, hey ya!, nostradamus, outkast, speakerboxxx, the love below
The guys look into the lyrics for the hit Outkast/Andre 3000 song Hey Ya! one of the rare episodes where the lyrics are actually amazing but the meaning has been overlooked and that's all part of the genius.
105 - Wonderful Christmastime
December 25th, 2022 | 1 hr 6 mins
christmas music, macca, occult, paul mccartney, the beatles, wonderful christmastime
Break out your ancient synthesizers and handclaps... Seth and Marc will bring the eggnog and discuss the frightening endurance of the strange and simple Wonderful Christmastime. Did he write it when he was 8? Why can't we look down? Why didn't anyone tell him how boring this song is?
104 - Figured You Out
December 19th, 2022 | 1 hr 5 mins
chad kroeger, figured you out, gaslighting, kroeger, manipulation, misogyny, nickelback, yikes
Seth and Marc can't get enough shitting all over Nickelback. This time, it's their weird and questionable pro-bro-anthem Figured You Out which posits that even though the narrator loved all of these behaviors from the beginning, it's okay to suddenly change course and say he knows the "real" her and dump her while nothing changes. Classic.
103 - Californication
December 12th, 2022 | 1 hr 13 mins
bad lyrics, californication, red hot chili peppers, rhcp, yikes
As soon as we decided on doing another Red Hot Chili peppers song, I had to call in my bud who can't stand them. Greg from Nice Guys stops back in to help unfurl the lyrical diarrhea that AKieds is spewing out of both ends this time; like usual, 10% sense making to 90% insane drivel... and hypocritical drivel at that.
102 - P.Y.T.
December 5th, 2022 | 49 mins 10 secs
Seth and Marc take a look at the song with a title that wouldn't age too well.... P.Y.T. What's this all about and why is he being so insistent? And what in the fuck is a tenderoni?
101 - Smooth Criminal
November 28th, 2022 | 50 mins 7 secs
bad, but not bad dancing, dancing, michael jackson, mj, moonwalker, smooth criminal
Seth and Marc grab their sequined gloves, their pet chimps, and their arrested development from being pushed to the point of exhaustion as a child and tackle the extremely repetitive Smooth Criminal... the song that made everybody named "Annie" want to immediately change it.
100 - How Bizarre
November 20th, 2022 | 57 mins 17 secs
acid trips, circus, how bizarre, omc, otara millionaires club, social commentary
EPISODE 100! We sit down with dear friend and co-host of our sister podcast Know Nonsense Trivia Podcast Lee The B to uncover the true meaning behind How Bizarre. What starts out sounding like a song about a boring acid trip where cops harass you, you see a ringmaster come out of a poster, and you ask for people to pay to find out what happens at the end of the story ends up possibly being about something more.
99 - All Around The World
November 14th, 2022 | 44 mins 17 secs
all around the world, big yikes, headhunting, ice tea, lisa stansfield, most dangerous game, obsession, psychotic break
Marc and Seth throw some essentials into a suitcase and take off with the lovely Lisa Stansfield to find her baby in the terribly creepy and non-self aware All Around The World.
98 - All Rise
November 7th, 2022 | 41 mins 36 secs
all rise, blue, court, matlock, objection overruled, self-representation
The Honorable Shitty British Boy Band presiding... What do you get when Simon Cowell puts together a 3rd rate boy band and put them in a room with some Norwegian producers? Unfortunately, it seems like you get a terrible song with about a baker's dozen references to court-oriented stuff but without really knowing how court works. And bad rapping.
97 - Poundcake
October 31st, 2022 | 51 mins 18 secs
for unlawful carnal knowledge, poundcake, sammy hagar, van hagar, van halen
BOO! There's only one thing scarier than ghouls and goblins on Halloween.... and that is Van Halen fronted by Gary Cherone! We brought you the next scariest thing; Van Halen fronted by a very horny Sammy Hagar. Why not compare love-filled sex to a dense bread? Well, we'll tell you why.
