Top Ten Songs With Weird Lyrics That We Love

The Top Ten

1 Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen

The most beautiful thing about this song is it brings people together. Even though we don't know what it means, we are still brought together by it. The mystery doesn't intrigue me; I don't want to know what the song means. I love it enough already.

With this being one of the the most famous songs ever written, and the fact that almost no one can agree what the song really means, it is one of the strangest, yet most amazing songs ever written. That's without mentioning Eddie Mercury's voice and Brian May's expert guitar solos on his self made "Red Special"made in his garage

Yes, have to bow down to Queen on this song. So fun to sing and listen to but makes absolutely no sense. Musically it rocks. The lyrics are fun to learn and sing.

Never heard of it, but I think I'll listen to it!

Very weird, but the song is awesome nevertheless. Also the way Kurt sings it makes it better.

Definitely should be #1. Just listen to the lyrics! 'With the lights out, it's less Dangerous. Here we are now, entertain us. I feel stupid, and contagious. Here we are now, entertain us. ' Another reason is that not once in the song do they sing "Smells Like Teen Spirit"

I was going to vote for bohemian rhapsody but then I realized that the lyrics aren't that weird, so since were song with weird lyrics that we love, this one from nirvana fits the bill

How is Bohemian Rhapsody weird?

3 'U Can't Touch This - MC Hammer

His dancing is also quite weird that even vanilla ice copied it

4 Chop Suey! - System of a Down Chop Suey! - System of a Down

This song is a beautiful song and undoubtedly is one of the best rock songs of the 2000's and the song meaning is sad it's about people that get judged by the way they die like let's say if someone dies of a drug overdose people will say he/she deserves it because they abused drugs.

I hate the song, but the lyrics are hysterical! - HYDRAflash

5 Closer - Nine Inch Nails Closer - Nine Inch Nails

You can tell by the first verse that this song gets weird, but something about it makes you want to replay it for an hour

Well this song is about sex... Pretty obvious

6 Basket Case - Green Day Basket Case - Green Day

This song doesn't have that many weird lyrics, but it's still great.

7 Gangnam Style - PSY

Don't know the words, but can't help liking it. I mean, I find it a bit annoying, but have to dance along when I hear it. Is that weird?

It's Korean. enough said.

Translated from Korean, unless you speak the language. Very odd either way.

What do those words even mean?

8 Don't Stop Me Now - Queen Don't Stop Me Now - Queen

I'm a sex machine ready to reload! - ethanmeinster

9 The End - The Doors The End - The Doors

Almost 50 years later, Morrison's lyrics about his mother are pretty weird.

Mother, I want to f--- you all night long. It doesn't get any weirder than that

10 Paranoid Android - Radiohead Paranoid Android - Radiohead

One of the greatest songs of all time, just look at the other lists of greatest songs ever.

Pretty much ANYTHING by radiohead should be high on this list.

PARANOID ANDROID is below WHAT DOES THE FOX SAY?! That song doesn't even have weird lyrics and isn't nearly as good as paranoid android!

Bohemian rhapsody of radiohead its place should be just below its daddy

The Newcomers

? Alive - Pearl Jam Alive - Pearl Jam

Great song, one of Pearl Jam's best masterpieces. But let's be honest, the lyrics are pretty... Bizarre. Look it up if you don't believe me!

? Come Together - The Beatles Come Together - The Beatles

This song is about the Beatles and how they need to "come together." (See what I did there? ) Each verse describes each member. - ImAKillerQueen

John is talking about Paul and his death in this song and it all makes sense. 'He wear no shoeshine'. On the cover of A. Road, Paul is barefoot. 'Hair down to his knees'. After someone dies, their hair still grows for a while

More than 40 years later, and still no one has any idea what a "walrus gumboot" is anyway.

I like the Michael Jackson version better! - lizard302

It may be lyrics YOU love but I hate this song. So annoying. - PositronWildhawk

This song has weird lyrics but I hate it. Who can be stupid enough to like this nonsense!?

I really want to punch anyone who makes me listen to this song

The lyrics are very stupid...JUST MY OPINION.

12 Every Breath You Take - The Police Every Breath You Take - The Police
13 I Am the Walrus - The Beatles I Am the Walrus - The Beatles

"Elementary penguin singing Hare Krishna" or "Sitting on a corn flake waiting for the van to come" or "Semolina Pilchard climbing up the Eiffel Tower", all in all, I love this song, even though the lyrics make no absolute sense. - SlimVeggie

The story of this song, is that John Lennon was upset with everyone over analyzing the Beatles lyrics, so he wrote a song that purposely made no sense, remembering little sayings he'd heard in his life.

This should be #1

-Fun Fact: Part of the song was written during an acid trip and it was meant to confuse people analyzing the Beatles' lyrics

Best song ever recorded!
Why isn't this 1st?

14 A Little Piece of Heaven - Avenged Sevenfold A Little Piece of Heaven - Avenged Sevenfold

Grr! I didn't think I'd see this here. I already voted for Bohemian Rhapsody. ):
As much as I love Bohemian Rhapsody and ALL things Freddie Mercury, this is my favorite song, and even when I put bias aside, I still think it has weird lyrics and love it for that reason. I mean, just listen to these:
"Because I really always knew that my little crime would be cold - that's why I got a heater for your thighs."
Everything else in the song is amazing, too. If you were to hear different segments of it at different times, you wouldn't be able to tell they were from the same song. For example, the chorus sounds NOTHING like the verse (the verses sound like something out of a Tim Burton movie! ). In this sense, it reminds me of Bohemian Rhapsody. And the vocals from M Shadows and the Rev are incredibly expressive!
Please do not be turned off by the rather graphic content in the song. When you look past all the grossness and view the song as a whole, it has a beautiful message. ...more

This song is... Crazy
The Song changes tune about 3-5 times different sounds in it
There some soft & then Hard in it then just sadistic it's weird & the lyrics are too!

Love A7x... A little piece of heaven is the first song from a7x I've heard.. And I loved it so much... It also has a great massage... A7x fo_rev_er,...,...

15 One Week - Barenaked Ladies

Catchy, weird, awesome! It's very strange, and it makes me think, what the hell, but it's awesome and I never tire of it! But I don't think it's the best Barenaked Ladies song, and definitely not the best music video. That's Falling For the First Time; an awesome song in every way!

It's a great song, with great lyrics, which are very odd, but awesome! - PositronWildhawk
