Song lyrics that don't fit anymore

Recommended Posts

I got this idead when I saw this in the quote box.

I blew out my flip-flop/Stepped on a pop-top/

Cut my heel had to cruise on back home

Pop-tops, those pull-off tops from cans that were replaced in the late seventies (maybe early-eighties) with a "non-removable" round "pop-down/pop-in" tab.

Was probably a Ralph Nader safety thing. Many people, I heard, swallowed those tabs and choked or cut their throats, they wound up all over the ground too.

Out-dated now.

So it occurred to me that there are probably other song lyrics that have become out-dated too.

"Pennsylvania 6-5000" performed now and forever by The Glen Miller Orchestra.

Don't forget Beachwood 4 -5789 * by The Marvelettes

"and my number is

Beachwood 4 -5789

You can call me up and have a date

Any old time "

It must have been an anachronism already when it was covered by The Carpenters.

*( William Stevenson / Marvin Gaye / George Gordy )

Any song that uses the word "gay" with its original meaning. One example is "The Great Pretender" by The Platters: "Oh yes, I'm the great pretender/Just laughing and gay like a clown." Nowadays if anyone tried to write a song with lyrics like that, they'd quickly be accused of stereotyping all clowns as homosexuals.

Now, you have to go about 107 to get pulled over driving from Phoenix to Tucson.

The exact same occurance has happened to me before, same locations & same M.P.H. - Purely coincidential, or Carl is that police officer I keep referring to in many posts. :laughing:
