I think we can all pretty much agree with the fact that lying is wrong. Sure, you can make an argument for harmless white lies that protect people from having their feelings hurt, but otherwise, it is probably best to tell the truth.
So why is it, then, that we allow musicians to get away with lying right to our faces? Or…to our ears, I guess.
You might be innocently jamming out to some tunes and not even realize that the song you are listening to is filled with lies. I know that there’s such a thing as artistic license, but still. Some song lyrics are just blatantly false.
The people of Twitter recently came to the same realization. What followed was a hilarious discussion about song lyrics that are definitely filled with lies. Read forward at your own risk. Personally, I’m not sure I can ever trust another musician.
