It seems that lately I've been going in circles with these posts. I'll look at it as some sort of karmic success. I'll attribute it to synchronicity—an affirmation that I'm heading in the right direction and that no, I should not have turned left back there.

That said, no, I have not watched more of Neneh Cherry's cooking show. Although, when my boss applauded my menial task achievement, I asked him if he remembered the Buffalo Stance. I then divulged that I stuffed packets while watching a cooking show, which honestly, he laughed at—in a good way, of course. I digress, no, it's better, I spent the past 15 minutes reading an entire thread devoted to bad song lyrics!

You see, I told Nick last night that the Chumbawumba Game has to stop. It was the first time I'd seen him in days and honestly, I'd enjoyed the break—from the game. I know there's a decade worth of mineable material, but it's just not sustainable. I know the 90s aren't as pilfered as the 80s, but, "How about I pull out that song lyrics game we were all working on a hand full of years ago?" Nick shrugged, "It's the 80s." Wah, wah.

Well, in the pursuit of discourse, I really enjoy the fact that Toto's Africa lyrics made this radio station's worst song lyric list. Not that I think Toto's Africa has the worst song lyrics. As a matter of fact, I think they're some of the best song lyrics ever in the entire world.

Take the Africa lyric posted by the radio station:

The wild dogs cry out in the night
As they grow restless longing for some solitary company
I know that I must do what's right
Sure as Killimanjaro rises like Olympus over the Serengheti
and I just have to sing:

It's gonna take a lot to drag me away from you!
There's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do...

These lyrics are so bad, in fact, they are great. It is a feat worthy of yacht rock proportions! And again, we delve into the realm of cosmic come-arounds.

By the way, I added my two cents to the tread with:

I feel so dirty when they start talking cute
I wanna tell her that I love her
But the point is probably moot
