Oh! So that’s What It Says!
Ok, so we’ve probably heard about the phenomena that is Taylor Swift’s Starbucks lovers ‘long list of ex-lovers’ lyric in her “Blank Space” song, but these Spanish speakers take misheard lyrics to another level — like, top-shelf status.
LATVEcuador put the lyrics of “Get Lucky” by Daft Punk, or “Jef Loki” by Daf Pom, and other English language bands and artists to the test for native Spanish speakers. The results are #jajaja worthy.
For some of these participants, we can’t really blame them. We didn’t understand what Kurt Cobain was saying either in the last line of “Smells Like Teen Spirit” – so ‘Aguinaga’ sounds like a good guess to us. For the record, we looked up the lyrics and Cobain is belting out ‘a denial!’. #WeWereinDenial
