Lyrics That Send You to the Dictionary
"Noah Webster" painted by Samuel Morse
It's National Dictionary Day commemorating the birthday of lexicographer Noah Webster. Has a word in a lyric ever had you searching your brain or the dictionary for its meaning? Let us know and we'll spin a set of those songs after 9am.
Here's what we played:
Arctic Monkeys "Mardy Bum" (mardy)
Blondie "(I'm Always Touched by Your) Presence Dear" (theosophy)
The Decemberists "The Legionnaire's Lament" (charabanc, et al.)
Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds "There She Goes, My Beautiful World" (carbuncles)
