  2. Queen

    In "Fat Bottomed Girls" Freddie sings "get on your bikes and ride" and in "Bicycle Race" they sing "fat bottomed girls, they'll be riding today".

    Michael Jackson and The Jacksons. This one hasn't been recognised anywhere but if you listen to the songs back-to-back you can pick up that MJ is singing about the same girl in each one.

    "She's Out Of My Life" from Off The Wall

    and then "Time Waits For No One" from The Jacksons album Triumph.

    If it were a story the first song would be when the break-up has happened, and the second song would be maybe a month later with Michael still lamenting over it.

    Also from MJ, "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'" contains the lyrics "Billie Jean is always talkin', when nobody else is talkin'", linking it to the classic that appears later on Thriller.

  4. My personal opinion of that Cee-Lo song is that it's like putting on an armani suit and then smearing $hit all over it. The music is fantastic but the gutter language just ruins it.

    I'm not a prude or anything. There are some songs where the emotion involved makes swearing in the lyrics justifiable, but this ain't one of them. It would be perfectly fine if the lyrics were actually supposed to be forget you.

    Swearing for the sake of swearing is something that school kids do to try and look cool in front of each other.
