We all know that when it comes to pulling on girls’ heartstrings, all it takes is an Ed Sheeran song to get us feeling all warm and fuzzy inside. Why? Because, sad or happy, somehow Ed knows exactly how we’re feeling at all times. How? He’s a “Ginger Genuis” that’s how.
In this latest video, self-proclaimed “romantically-challenged filmaker” Tommy Wooldridge tries his luck at getting a girlfriend by using some famous lyrics from “Lego House” and “Give Me Love.” The video has been getting a lot of hits lately and it might have something to do with Ed personally giving it his stamp of approval on Twitter.
Sadly, the lyrics don’t prove to be successful on Tommy’s search for love. But to be fair a lot of the girls claimed to have been already taken. That’s what they said when he tried picking up the ladies with Taylor Swift lyrics…
What do you think? Would Ed Sheeran lyrics work as a pick-up line for you?
Taking class to the next level, Ray J wants everyone to know that Kanye West is taking his sloppy seconds.
According to TMZ, the singer’s new song “I Hit it First” features some lyrics that sound a lot like they are referring to his past with Kim Kardashian:
She might move on to rappers and ballplayers
But we all know I hit it first.
I had her head going North and her ass going South
But now baby chose to go West
No matter where she goes or who she knows
She still belongs in my bed.
Yikes! As you might already know, Ray J is famous for making the sex tape “Kim K Superstar” with Kardashian.
And as if he couldn’t be any more obvious, the single cover for the song just looks like a really badly blurred image of Kardashian at the beach.
Way to keep it classy, Ray J. Way to keep it classy.
If you were born in the nineties and you owned a television growing up, I can guarantee that you can sing at least 85 per cent of the Fresh Prince of Bel Air theme song. Should you ask your parents to sing it, I’m 85 per cent sure they wouldn’t have a clue what you were talking about. And that’s what got 19-year-old Travis Clawson in trouble.
The boy triggered a lockdown at his Pennsylvania school after a receptionist trying to confirm an appointment thought his voicemail said “shooting people outside of the school” when the recording played the song (the actual line is “shooting some b-ball”).
The receptionist then called 911 and Clawson was arrested, but was released once the message was explained. This is a lesson to all parents/adults: maybe you should pay closer attention to the so-called garbage us young folk watch, if only to prevent embarrassing misunderstandings such as this one.
Dear Gentlemen of the World,
We know how heart-in-your-toes scary it can be when you’re dying to ask out that pretty girl in your biology class — especially if you’re plagued with foot-in-mouth disease. That’s why we made it easy for you with this handy dating guide featuring 15 pickup lines courtesy of Justin Bieber lyrics. He nabbed Spring Breakers’ Selena Gomez and has millions of Beliebers vying for his heart, so he must be doing something right… right?
We noted the exact moments when these lyrics could help you score or get you out of awkward situations. Please keep in mind this guide is wholly unscientific, unproven and might admittedly HURT your chances of dating someone.
Not a Dating Expert
“Tell me what you like yeah tell me what you don’t/ I could be your Buzz Lightyear, fly across the globe.”
“I can be a gentleman (gentleman), anything you want/ If I was your boyfriend (boyfriend), I’d never let you go, never let you go.”
When to use them: These lyrics are most effective during that pre-stage dating ritual known as courtship. You’re providing her with hypothetical examples of how dating you will benefit her — once she gets the visual, there’s no going back. Moreover, the Buzz Lightyear reference will immediately blast her with nostalgia, ensuring she associates you with good thoughts.
Song: ”One Less Lonely Girl” and “Somebody to Love”
“Don’t need these other pretty faces like I need you/ And when you’re mine, in the world/ There’s gonna be one less lonely girl.”
“Christmas wasn’t merry, 14th of February not one of them spent with you.”
“Step to the beat of my heart/ I don’t need a whole lot/ But for you I admit I/ I’d rather give you the world/ Or we can share mine/ I know I won’t be the first one/ giving you all this attention/ Baby listen/ I just need somebody to love.”
When to use them: After lightheartedly listing off all the amazing things you’d do if you were her boyfriend, make known your actions to hurdle this wish into reality. The benefits go both ways: you’d both be less lonely.
Song: “First Dance”
“Only if you give, give your first dance to me/ Girl, I promise I’ll be gentle/ I know we gotta do it slowly/ If you give (give it), give the first dance to me (give it)/ I’m gon’ cherish every moment/ ’cause it only happens once, once in a lifetime”

We’ve all done it — pretended to know a song, when really we’re all just noobs with a collection of misheard lyrics. Pleated Jeans recently made an epic compilation of songs with lyrics that are brutally misheard. I may or may not be guilty for some of those Blink 182 failures.
According to the video, these are some commonly misheard lyrics:
“I’ve left some brains down in Africa,” – Toto’s “Africa”
“With the lights out, sex is dangerous. Here we are now in containers,” – Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit”
“Padded bra! Padded br-a-a,” – Van Halen’s “Panama”
“You keep making me reek, yeah, frozen in Cadbury,” – One Direction’s “One Thing”
“Come on Barbie, let’s go potty,” – Aqua’s “Barbie Girl”
Watch the compilation here:
I think we have lost track of how many “Call Me Maybe” covers we have posted over here at ANDPOP, but it’s not everyday that you come across a couple animals making a parody video. Not only is it adorable puppy love, the video even starts off with the pup lurking out the window to her gardener, followed by creative lyrics to a doggy tone of ear. “I’m locked up in the house, come and save me/ I so woof you, Woof me maybe?”
If anyone else is thinking a parody to another upcoming hit, we challenge you with Psy’s “Gangnam Style,” and of course we have a tutorial for you.
In the Rizzle Kicks new Toby Lockerbie-directed video for “Dreamers” they’re pretty convinced they can make it to the moon and back, which we won’t argue with because those guys can pretty much do anything in LIFE.
The duo spew out the lyrics in front of a wall painted with a gigantic, trippy white cat, wearing a monocle. They rap: “I can find that place/ Up in my dreams tonight/ Where you and I/ Don’t have to fight/ Over what is right or wrong/ It’s not you who decides/ Oh this is my life.”
The track is the sixth single from their album Stereo Typical.
Try to imagine Michael Cera using Blink-182 lyrics to pick up girls. That’s exactly what this shy teenager does to win tickets to see his fave band. Unfortunately the lyrics are 90 percent unsuccessful as come-ons… the only reason why they’re 10 percent successful is because he won tickets to a concert and duh, he’ll probably ask a female companion to go with him. Plus, he did get a bunch of phone numbers the end, even if it was for administrative purposes.
Some of his lines included: “This world is an ugly place, but you’re so beautiful to me” and ”Hey, show me the way to the bed. Show me the way you move,” promptly followed by “I’m sorry.” The two songs were “Wishing Well” and “Dammit.”
Would they work on you?
Watch it here:
The Queen of Pop or Madge or Esther or whatever Madonna goes by, is back in the music scene with a new song, Give Me All Your Love. Perez Hilton reports she’ll be premiering that song at next year’s Super Bowl.
No one has a recording of the complete song but Perez posted the lyrics on his site and so now, I’m gonna do what I do best: judge it for all its worth. The song begins with:
Y-O-U You wanna
First of all, there’s nothing more annoying than spelling in a song. Save that for elementary school, okay? Second of all, way to promote illiteracy, Madonna. It’s spelled L-O-V-E. Yeesh!
Give me all that you got
Maybe you’ll do fine
As long as you don’t lie to me
And pretend to be what you’re not
That’s a little contradictory, Madonna. You’ve been pretending to be something you’re not for decades. You’ve been all over America talking with a fake British accent, thinking we wouldn’t notice that you’re not at all British. Also, you’ve been lying to us all by not mentioning your brother is homeless. Just be honest, for Pete’s sake.
Don’t play the stupid game
Cause I’m a different kind of girl
Every record sounds the same
You’ve got to step into my world
Girl? Claiming to be a girl is like me claiming to be famous. It is not correct. Girl? More like old lady ready for the retirement home. And trust me, I’ve stepped into your world before, and all YOUR records sound the same. I bet this new one’s not going to be any different than Hard Candy – we all remember that flop!
Y-O-U You wanna
Keep trying don’t give up, it’s if you want it bad enough
It’s bad enough when singers name drop other famous people in their songs but it’s worse when they name drop themselves. Talk about narcissism! “Keep trying don’t give up, if you want it bad enough” – are you sure you’re singing to an audience or whining to your manfriend?
You have all the L-U-V
I gave you everything you need
Now it’s up to Y-O-U
Are you the one, shall we proceed?
M-A-D Don’t make me
L-U-V It’s time for
Y-O-U It’s up to
L-U-V I want your
B-A-D This song is bad. L-A-M-E the lyrics are lame and T-I-M-E is what I want back.
Amy’s father, understandably upset, said the thieves stole unreleased music, lyric books and letters belonging to Winehouse.
The Sun reports only two lyric books were reported stolen to the police. But other items are missing including guitars and lyrics penned for her third album.
Hopefully the thieves who stole these items are dumb enough to place it on Craigslist. At least that will make them easy to catch.
‘Black Eyed Peas’ member will.i.am had to use his cell phone to remember lyrics on stage during a recent show in France, reports Pink Is The New Blog.
During a performance of the groups’ new single ‘Don’t Stop The Party,’ the singer/producer whipped out his blackberry and read his lyrics off of it. I mean, so ridiculous.
The group was performing a mash-up of Belgian rapper’s Stromae’s European smash “Alors On Dance” with “Don’t Stop The Party,” so I could see why he needed some help in the french department. But the funny thing is, as soon as the Stromae portion of the performance ended, will.i.am can still be seen clearly cheating around the one minute mark. He doesn’t even know his own song!
It’s not unheard of that artists use teleprompters when performing, but this single is over a year old and, to be frank, not that hard to remember.
Check it out below!
While Christina Aguilera flubbed the lyrics to the national anthem at the Super Bowl, it’s a good thing she’s a good sport about it.
The singer, who sat down with Ellen Degeneres on Tuesday for an interview to talk about her new NBC show “The Voice”, Aguilera explained her infamous Super Bowl mishap.
“I had been singing that song my entire life. I was the youngest anthem singer in my hometown of Pittsburgh, PA. I sang for the Steelers when I was this big,” she said, referring to her pint size childhood stature. “I think 7 or 8 years old. I would sing for them. I think had a moment where I was at the Super Bowl at 30 years old. I took in the moment a little bit too much. Shoot me for appreciating the moment but here I am at the Super Bowl… singing for a team and in front of the world. And remembering what it was like to be that young and look where I made it now.”
While she forgot the lyrics, the pop star did recognize her mistake, and just how many people had seen it.
“And then it was like, oh. That night I knew, I just made myself a Trivial Pursuit question,” she joked. “‘In 2011 what female singer, ya know, flubbed the lyrics.’ It’s just insane. But I have a really good laugh about it and you get over things. You get back up again and you just prove to yourself and to everyone you that much stronger.”
Aguilera had similar comments about the mixup right after the game went down.
In a statement to the Associated Press, Aguilera said, “I got so lost in the moment of the song that I lost my place. I can only hope that everyone could feel my love for this country and that the true spirit of its anthem still came through.”
Well…as embarrassing as it might have been, you still have to give her props for her powerful vocals!
