This is actually a reference to Whitney Houston's song 'My Name Is Not Susan', which came out a few years before 'Whatta Man'. The Whitney song is about her partner confusing her and his other woman...

Nice list and great album picks too! The ones in bold are some of my favourite albums. I would probably pick 'Unleashed Memories' and 'Mother Earth' for Lacuna Coil and Within Temptation personally,...

Well yes of course :D. That's pretty much how I've always thought of it - sort of as a slightly separate introduction to the song he wrote at 21. As I say though, it depends on how literally you're...

It depends how literally you want to take it all, but I can see where 'it's frothy man' is coming from. If he wrote the song at 21, then that includes the first line "I was 21 years when I wrote this...

This line was actually lifted directly from Simon and Garfunkel's "Leaves That Are Green", so maybe you should be blaming Paul Simon instead!

I'm not going to argue that it's some kind of lyrical masterpiece, but people do seem to ignore the second line of the Sandi Thom song - "in '77 and '69 revolution was in the air". The song is about...

'Drop them keys' is incorrect English, that's the point. As mimicole points out, using the correct phrase - 'drop those keys' - makes no difference to the number of syllables, so there's no reason...

I saw this yesterday and agree that the Wham! lyric isn't that weird. The Carly Rae Jepsen really isn't that bad either unless you take it completely literally. I've always assumed that the Oasis...

I think genres also need to be considered. Rock music is notoriously male-centric, as is hip hop, to give just two examples (though females have never been entirely absent from either genre, of...

I'll second this but add that all of her albums with Nightwish are well worth a listen. In fact, 'Oceanborn' is probably my personal favourite.

I like the debut album a lot, though I do think the singles are a lot stronger than the rest of the album (though that's not exactly a rare occurrence in pop music). I was listening to a lot of 80s...

'Lights' for me is decent enough but just fairly average electropop overall, and it is quite samey. I think 'Halcyon' has a couple of weak tracks but is a much, much stronger album than her debut. It...

I completely agree that 'Aaliyah' is her strongest album, while 'Age Ain't Nothing But a Number' is pretty average overall. Getting Timbaland as a producer did wonders for her music, but even the...

The lyrics do describe his methods as 'sickening' and Mengele himself as 'rancid', so I think that portrays him in a pretty negative light, especially when then viewed in conjunction with the...

I saw the first one several years ago. It's very silly and isn't going to blow anyone away, but it is quite good fun.

60s-influenced for sure, but it's actually from 1991! Good choice nonetheless. If you don't know them already, I'd check out Cornelius, Cibo Matto and Flipper's Guitar for more Japanese music along...
