the song that didn't rhyme

i've been listening to alice cooper on my phone (when at work) for the past couple of days. i don't even know why.

to be truthful, i actually do know why, but i was beginning to question the sanity of my motives last night. to put it plainly, i thought alice cooper sounded like crap. or rather, not even crap. i found their songs boring and drab, not even the sort that gets me pissed. more like the sort that makes you wish it gets over as soon as it can.

then i heard this song on my phone today evening. and it turned everything around.

i'll probably not listen to alice cooper for the next few months, if not years, but i now have new found respect for them. in fact, i now like them more than i like people who make crappy music. because this song explains why some of their songs truly sounded like crap. i have made my assumptions and used a lot of leeway in my interpretation, but i guess that's one right music does give me :)

The Song That Didn't Rhyme - by Alice Cooper


Wrote a song
It was wrong
From it's very first conception
Seemed I struggled on every line

It wasn't fast
It wasn't pretty
It wasn't serious
Or witty
The song that didn't rhyme

The band couldn't wing it
The singer couldn't sing it
The drummer's always out of time

The DJs were offended
My union card suspended
Billboard declared it a crime

The melody blows
In a key that no one can find
The lyrics don't flow
But I can't get it out of my mind

A three minute waste of your time
On the song that didn't rhyme

It was bland
It was boring
All the groupies they were snoring
The first time we played it live

All the record guys got fired
The president retired
But somehow the song survived

The melody blows
In a key that no one can find
The lyrics don't flow
But I can't get it out of my mind

Oh, the melody blows
In a key that no one can find
The lyrics don't flow
But I can't get it out of my mind

A three minute waste of your time
No redeeming value of any kind
But thanks for the $12.99
