Synopses & Reviews
In this gifty and hilarious book, the founder of AmIRight.com offers hundreds of the most offbeat musical mondegreens from his popular website. More than 130 bands will be featured, with 2/3 of entries from songs from the past 5 years. Each band entry will contain 4 to 8 wrong lyrics. In addition, there will be sidebars with such features as song parodies, fantasy duets, potential commercial soundtracks, humorous trivia tidbits, and other material culled from the website. With a fun, stylized design and package, this will be a great gift for any music fan.
We've all done it misheard a song lyric and sung along with the wrong words for months or years before being corrected. Whether you heard "Even if you're Ted Danson in the dark," instead of "Even if we're just dancin' in the dark," or confused "Jamie's out of gum" with "Janie's got a gun," this book is an ode to faulty hearing and mumbled lyrics everywhere. The artists presented here vary from pop idols Britney Spears, Billy Joel, and the Backstreet Boys to hard rockers like Def Leppard to urban groups such as Destiny's Child and Black Eyed Peas. Including parodies, fantasy duets, potential commercial soundtracks, and humorous tidbits, this book is perfect for both trivia lovers and those in search of a laugh.
