Song Title: Mountains

Actual Lyric: Bobby on the drum-ah!

What I heard: Bobby undercover!

Song Title: I Could Never Take The Place Of Your Man

Actual Lyric: Oh honey, baby, that's a dead end

What I Heard: Oh honey baby that's a way

The first time I heard it:

Song Title: Gett Off

Actual Lyric: Club Mix

What I heard: Fuck Me


I was in the car with a friend and playing the Hits when it came out. Her two kids, 4 and 5, were in the back seat. She said, "Do you think this song is appropriate for the kids?" I said, "What do you mean?" "Country pussy?!"

That was 1993. I've never let her live it down since.

You are right, that's what it says! There is actually an outtake circulating of a song of that name, and I believe there was also an earlier song called Soul Psychodelicide which was recorded a few days earlier that Joy in Repetition, but this one is not circulating, I don't think!

Song Rapberry Beret

Song Lyric She wore a Raspberry beret, and if it was warm she wouldn't wear much more.

What I heard She wore a Raspberry beret, and if it was war she wouldn't wear much more.


I heard it early on, and it just imprinted. I always thought it was a "u got the look" "girl vs boy in the world series of love" type battle of the sexes war. biggrin

I think the rhyme of war and more was what swayed me.

When Doves Cry.
Animals strike curious poses.
And the most jaicooreous poses.

The One
Place you above all others.
Place your bum all over.
If the milk turns out to be sour, I aint the kinda pussy to drink it!
