My Ten Favorite "Wait, what?" Songs...

Have you ever heard a song? Fell in love with the music, the beat, the catchy little tune...but then you actually listened to the lyrics. That happened to me recently with that Foster the People song "Pumped up Kicks." I'll admit the first time I heard the song that I really didn't listen to the lyrics. I was just driving along tapping my fingers and humming. I mean I didn't even bother to look up the name of the group or song.

A couple days later, I was listening to the radio again, and there it was, and did he just say "Out run my gun?" This upbeat little diddy is about a kid thinking about killing other kids? Wait, what? Don't get me wrong...I still love the song, but I started thinking about some of those catchy little songs that have such wrong lyrics. So, I perused through my media player to see what other songs make you do a double take. This is not a perfect list. You may not find some of these songs peculiar, but here are my Ten Favorite "Wait, what?" Songs...

Happy Holidays Wreath

Sleigh bells ring are you listening? It's the time in the NFL where the guys are either getting ready to book flights to their playoff destinations or rent that old U-Haul to clean out their lockers and begin their vacations a little early (see Cleveland, Indianapolis, Minnesota, Jacksonville, etc.) Well, I'm finally floating down from Cloud Nine after my Chiefs...that's right MY CHIEFS beat the undefeated Super Bowl Champion Green Bay Packers!!!! I couldn't believe it, especially since I picked against them.

NFL Week 15 Picks...

Welcome back ladies and gentlemen! It is week 15 in the NFL, and time is running out for several teams. The Atlanta Falcons helped their cause by destroying Jacksonville 41-14 on Thursday Night Football. *Roddy White-did you have to jack TG in the end zone, man?* The Cowboys are positioning themselves as well with their 31-15 victory last night against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. *Raheem Morris, you may need to brush up that old resume friend, signed Todd Haley and Tony Sparano* Tebow mania is in full effect. Whatever...

Why I Don't Really Care for Tim Tebow...

"Tebow has changed NFL QB game" "Tim Tebow: All he does is win" "Rick Perry Compares himself to Tim Tebow" "Tebow wins again! Drug sniffing dog named after the football star makes a cocaine bust" " 'Tebowing': Dictionary Recognizes Tim Tebow Phenomenon"

You can barely turn on the television these days without seeing Tim Tebow smiling, Tim Tebow winning, Tim Tebow working out, Tim Tebow tebowing, Tim Tebow, Tim Tebow, Tim Tebow... Annoying right? Don't get me wrong. Tim Tebow is a great kid. He has a Heisman. He has two BCS Championship rings. He's a humanitarian. He's a devout Christian. He has worked as missionary. He is everything the NFL wishes in a poster boy. I get it. I really do. I really don't hate Tim Tebow the person. As a matter of fact, he is a great role model for kids, but Tim Tebow the football player? I can't stand that dude.

In the lead in the AFC are New England (8-3), Houston (8-3), Baltimore (8-3), Oakland (7-4), Pittsburgh (8-3), and Cincinnati (7-4). New York Jets, Tennessee, and Denver all have a 6-5 record and are trying to play their way into the pack. While in the NFC, the leaders are Green Bay (11-0), San Francisco (9-2), New Orleans (8-3), Dallas (7-4), Atlanta (7-4), and Chicago (7-4). Chicago and Houston are working with back up quarterbacks. Denver has Tim Tebow who has won 5 games in a row. Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers are playing like men possessed. Atlanta and Dallas are slowly getting their collective acts together. This last month is going to be awesome.
