10 Random and Ridiculous Songs
Not every song is eloquently penned with substantial or outward depth – this is definitely true in modern musical times. Some songs are born from a random place and because of little context or the idiosyncratic artists/songwriters; the final product sometimes comes over, well ridiculously. Sometimes ridiculous isn’t even the appropriate word – sometimes the results show great ambitiousness, uniqueness or maybe even misunderstood genius. Regardless of the characterization, the 10 songs that grace this list are all captivating, thanks to being either random, ridiculous, or a mixture of both.
1. System of A Down, “She’s Like Heroin”
The best way to describe “She’s Like Heroin” is it is a trip. Without being analytical, the listener has the question what the heck System of a Down is getting at. Examine closer beyond the manic if memorable “Ass! Selling ass for heroin,” and it seems it’s tale of how desperate one is for sex and drugs – specifically heroin. The genius of this song is how SOAD balance seriousness, silliness, and a captivating listen.
2. Paul McCartney & Wings, “Jet”
Band On The Run
“Jet” is a rock and roll classic – no one will dispute that! Furthermore, no one will dispute the fact that Paul McCartney is the [bleeping] man. But, what exactly is the song actually about? Honestly, it’s sort of silly. Jet is supposedly about a puppy, though later McCartney suggests its about a pony – go figure. Cleverly, McCartney sings throughout, “And Jet, I thought the major was a lady suffragette.” Get it – ‘jet’ rhymes ‘suffragette’ that has nothing to do with anything.
