Happy Thursday! We’ve spoken before about my company City Prints, but I wanted to let you know about a new company I just launched – Music Prints. We make sheet music art. http://musicprintsart.com
City Prints taught us that place is personal, and now Music Prints gives you personalized art in another form – the most meaningful songs of your life. Here’s a link to a feature image of our prints and I think your visitors would be interested. https://www.dropbox.com/s/odyyuznvq9jt5hl/MusicPrints_FeatureImage.jpg
Now that we got the business out of the way, here are five of the most commonly misinterpreted songs.
Bryan Adams – Summer of 69
Adams was 10 years old in 1969, so of course the song is about being young and growing up in the summer right? Nope! It’s about…um… “doing it” in the summer.
Peter, Paul & Mary – Puff the Magic Dragon
This song was written in the 60s, so many speculate that it’s about smoking pot. Turns out this was not the band’s message and it’s about innocence lost. “Little Jackie Paper loves that rascal Puff” – come on!?!
Police – Every Breath You Take
This song you heard during a recent wedding’s first dance is a soft love song right? Well, Sting said it’s about his desire for surveillance and control he was feeling during his divorce. “I’ll be watching you?” Gross.
Bruce Springsteen – Born in the USA
There’s nothing like a good patriotic song about ‘Merica. However, this isn’t one of them. This is about the Vietnam War and it’s negative impact. Oops.
Phil Collins – In the Air Tonight
We’ve all heard the tales on how this song is about someone who watched someone drown without helping. I wish! The song is actually about the bitterness Phil felt during a divorce – booooring! However, the song still has one of the best drum intros of all time. I won’t take that from you Phil.
Thanks for reading – enjoy the rest of your week.
