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.
70 - Breakfast At Tiffany's
April 15th, 2022 | 48 mins 40 secs
breakfast at tiffany's, deep blue something, shitty boyfriends, shitty relationships, shitty songs
Marc releases his wrath on a song that's been bugging him a little more than he realized and Seth lends a supportive ear. The target of their woes? Breakfast At Tiffany's. A song so offensive in its mediocrity that it's driven the guys to the brink of madness. Listen to them vent about everything from the racism in the movie to the fact that the song wasn't inspired by the movie at all.
69 - Kiss From A Rose
April 8th, 2022 | 40 mins 58 secs
a bunch of cocaine, cocaine, kiss from a rose, love, maybe vaginas, more cocaine, seal, wow look at that cocaine
Seth and Marc wade through the mess of "mystery" lyrics that seem pretty obvious with Seal's's's Kiss From A Rose. How can a song so good also be so dumb? Get deep into the YA poetry of the song that almost got scrapped.
68 - Voodoo
April 1st, 2022 | 42 mins 56 secs
alice in chains cover band, bullshit lies, cold sores, cultural appropriation, godsmack, voodoo
Marc and Seth travel deep into the heart of Haiti to uncover the secret to becoming a "zombi" and, instead, come back with this hunk of shit. Sully and crew write a song that sounds like it's about heroin but is instead about something much more boring.... a movie. The guys go through this with a fine-toothed comb but not before calling them on their bullshit claim surrounding their name.
67 - Hot Blooded
March 25th, 2022 | 40 mins 52 secs
creepy white dudes, foreigner, hot blooded, secret rendezvous, std side effects
Is it a byproduct of some yet-to-be-named disease? Is it just good ol' fashioned horniness? Whatever it is, the boys in Foreigner are Hot Blooded and they are open to the idea of you looking for yourself. Seth and Marc get into the increasingly creepy 70's anthem about how hard it was to be a rocker in the golden age of rock.
66 - Love The One You're With
March 18th, 2022 | 39 mins 54 secs
cnbc, cnn, csi, csn, csny, csy2k, fisted gloves, polyamory, stephen stills
Let's get into some good ol' fashioned folk. Back when someone would say "Hey, cat. You look bummed out. Just go fuck someone to forget about that person you're in love with." Marc and Seth get in the wayback machine to a simpler time when people just sexed their troubles away and talked about things like "fisted gloves" in Stephen Stills' hit Love The One You're With.
65 - Sunglasses At Night
March 11th, 2022 | 41 mins 10 secs
corey hart, darkness, sunglasses at night, switchblades, third person, weirdo
Is that partial 3rd person narration we hear? Is Corey Hart losing his marbles? Seth and Marc feel around for some rhyme or reason to the 80's creepy hit that is apparently about being cheated on and trying to not see it? Except it doesn't really succeed in explaining what the fuck is going on and reads like a weirdo talking about switchblades.
64 - Chop Suey
March 4th, 2022 | 59 mins 17 secs
chop suey, father, keys, soad, suicide, system of a down, whispering
WAKE UP! Marc and Seth are joined by screen printing professional and all-around bad ass Joe Lachut to... be kind of surprised by the lyrics to an angry circus song. We get into the thick of the verse and chorus that just repeats plus that other part and talk about weird delivery working overtime against lyrics that are actually pretty captivating.
63 - Lullaby
February 25th, 2022 | 49 mins 51 secs
creepy vocals, lullaby, rockaby, self-indulgent lyric laughing, shawn mullins, yikes
Seth and Marc field a request for a song that resides deep in the depths of Marc's hate bin. Lullaby; the song that Shawn Mullins is so enamored with, he laughs at his own lyrics. Listen to Beck-lite pull an opposite of Hey Jude and take a better song and make it sad. Good luck sleeping after hearing Ol' Man Mullins talk like a sketchy heroin dealer trying to "lull" your 9 year old daughter.
62 - Don't You Want Me
February 17th, 2022 | 37 mins 4 secs
big yikes, coercion, don't you want me, jealousy, mistaken love songs, the human league, threats
I was hosting a podcast with my good friend Seth... that much is true. This song is about being a real creepy dick, did you ever have a clue? Listen in as the guys listen to the threats and coercion of a jealous shitbag who can't stand someone leaving him. Sounds like she's out of his.... Human League.
61 - Raise Your Glass
February 11th, 2022 | 39 mins 25 secs
alcoholism, panty snatching, party crashing, peer pressure, pink, raise your glass, the joker
Marc and Seth Raise their respective Glasses to the best panty snatcher of them all... Pink! On this episode, listen as she lures all of the miscreants of the world into non-stop drinking and wishing for them to just freak out (whatever that entails.)
60 - Who Made Who
February 3rd, 2022 | 41 mins 21 secs
ac, ac/dc, coke binges, dc, robot overlords, shitty directing, stephen king, who made who
Seth and Marc talk about the title track of the soundtrack to Stephen King's coke-fueled directorial debut AND finale Maximum Overdrive. It also asks one of the dumbest faux philosophical questions of our age: Who Made Who? Listen to Marc's Elmo version of Brian Johnson as the guys try to figure out what the fuck is happening here.
59 - Shake It
January 27th, 2022 | 48 mins 32 secs
metro station, necrophilia, quid pro quo car rides, shake it, that cyrus guy
Seth and Marc bring in good friends Rachelle and Daisy Caplan to dismember the lyrics to Shake It by Metro Station. Is it possible that this song is about necrophilia? Withholding a safe ride in exchange for sexual congress? We think it's quite likely. ALSO! The thrilling story of the band name!
58 - Stupify
January 20th, 2022 | 36 mins 24 secs
disturbed, fuck, poor spelling, rock, stupefy, stupify
It's hard for us to give just one... FUCK about this pile of shit. Are David Draiman and Co. using antisemitism as a way to push a terrible song? I would say quite possibly. Lyrics that are supposedly about his relationship that was soured due to his Jewish upbringing but sounds more like just a shitty nu metal song with terrible lyrics. Judge for yourself.
57 - Rebel Yell
January 13th, 2022 | 46 mins 54 secs
angels, billy idol, horny angels, rebel yell, slavery as it pertains to bdsm
You wake up in the middle of the night. The room is pitch black. Is that the sound of an angel pumping on your floor? Seth and Marc throw on the lights and take a look at the atrocious lyrics behind yet another horny Billy Idol song..... the man who will do whatever he needs as long as it doesn't mess up his hair.
56 - Zoot Suit Riot
January 7th, 2022 | 49 mins 31 secs
american racism, blow daddy, cherry poppin' daddies, downtown la, pachucos, racism, zoot suit riot
Seth and Marc crack open the ancient tomes and give you a bit of a history lesson as they school you on the REAL meaning of Zoot Suit Riot. Then, they go over the shitty lyrics of the real song and talk about how singer Steve Perry (Steeve Perry) didn't really seem to care about what really happened or to let you know... just to use that catchy title. Blow, daddy!
55 - Do They Know It's Christmas?
December 31st, 2021 | 42 mins 55 secs
band aid, do they know it's christmas?, live aid, rite aid, tone deaf, xenophobia
Being the UK's best-selling single of all time, you'd think more people would be appalled at the lyrics to Do The Know It's Christmas? Marc and Seth want to make sure they let a few more people know. Check out the song that raised millions for Ethiopian relief while simultaneously saying "What the fuck is Africa like and are these people even human?"
