Song Lyrics

Got a couple of song lyrics related websites for you. I rarely have a clue what the artist/author means when they create something, be it abstract painting, poetry, or song lyrics. So I found songmeanings.net of some interest. On a related note, have you ever heard little kids singing a song (or the pledge of allegience). As a group, they usually sound about right, but if you listen to them individually, you hear some rather bizarre stuff that sounds about right, but is totally wrong. Well, kissthisguy.com is full of stuff like that. The domain name comes from Hendrix’s “Purple Haze” (“Scuse me, while I kiss this guy…” vs. “kiss the sky”). According to the site, Hendrix was even aware of this common mishearance (?), and would play it up sometimes live.
