So long as pop singers mumble, garble, and swallow their lyrics, listeners will continue to misinterpret them, often with hilarious results. This site (amiright.com) taps into that wellspring of comedy, citing misreads of everyone from the Beatles (”Hey, Dude” rather than ”Hey, Jude”) to Shaggy (”How could I forget I had given her an STD?” rather than ”…an extra key?”). Am I Right’s stated purpose: ”Making fun of music. One song at a time.” Having logged more than 10,000 reported misinterpretations and analyzed the data to NASA-like standards, the site’s creators succeed in making a mockery of mockery.
