Lyrics good and bad
First of all to what I believe to be the worst lyrical construct ever. I’m not talking about the worst lyric ever. (For the record, that honour goes to Rhythm is a Dancer by Snap: I’m serious as cancer when I say rhythm is a dancer.) I’m talking about the worst-scanning lyric of all time. My view is that this particular honour goes to Roy Orbison for a particular segment from Crying:
I thought that I was over you,
But it’s true so true.
Next, a short note to share my view that Sleeper were lyrical geniuses. Sleeper were lyrical geniuses.
