Crazy song origins May 22, 2005

Filed under: Music — Shannon @ 7:05 am

I was listening to 95.5 the other day and heard Uncle Joe Benson talking about the Rolling Stones and Jumping Jack Flash. Apparently, that song came from the lead singer(who is he again?) that had this gardener that was on some kind of medication that made him a little jumpy. That made me think of what other kinds of songs had crazy beginnings. Any favorites?

    I don’t have a good song origin coming to mind right now, but this does remind me of that completely inane and uninspired worship chorus that the band was singing at church the other day… written by “Paul McCartney”.

    Also, I can tell you that the legend behind Phil Collins’s “In The Air Tonight” (in which it is said that he witnessed a man who stood by doing nothing while another man drowned, wrote the song, invited the man to a concert and then sang the song to the man in concert, thus exposing his dark secret) is complete bunk.

    Jon, what Paul McCartney worship song were you singing?

  3. Jon Says:

    I don’t remember, but there was no verse… just a chorus sung ad nauseum. And the whole thing was like six words long. I think this “Paul McCartney” might be like 5 years old or something.
