But, looking for coherence in the lyrics of pop songs from the 60's is like looking for wisdom in Democrats.

 Ok I get it you like "A Whiter Shade of Pale". But the lyrics?? WE skipped the light fandango..turned cartwheels 'cross the floor..I was feeling kind of seasick..the crowd called out for more..the room was humming harder..as the ceiling flew away..when we called out for another drink..the waiter brought a tray..and so it was that later..as the miller told his tale..that her face, at first ghostly..turned a whiter shade of pale. She said, "There is no reason..and the truth is plain to see"..but I wandered through my playing cards..and would not let her be..one of 16 vestal virgins..who were leaving for the coast..and although my eyes were wide open..they just might as well been closed?? We're Keith Reid, Gary Booker, and Matthew Fisher Trippin" when they wrote it?

A Whiter Shade of Pale became a hit because it's a GREAT song. To even mention it alongside the ridiculous MacArthur Park song is akin to rock and roll blasphemy.

But, I agree with your assessment of Obama's speeches.

 I read a thing once about music, it also pertains to speakers. It's not the content, it's the appropriate set of sounding noises. Other wise how do songs like McArthur Park, Whiter Shade of Pale and many more become hits? And how did Obama get elected? I remember listening to some of his speeches which sounded great, but I always came away asking myself, "What the hell did he just say"?

The lyrics of "Whiter Shade of Pale" are certainly weird, but it's a GREAT song! John Lennon was obsessed with it when it came out. He played it constantly on the turn table in his psychedelic Rolls Royce.

 It is called, "Whiter Shade of Pale". Get a grip. No wonder you don't understand.

 "My Mama said don't put those beans in my ears". Serendipity Singers. Or how about Procul Harems "White Shade of Pale". What in the hell do those lyrics even mean? Or Lonnie Donegan with, "Does your chewing gum lose it's flavor on the bed post over night".

A couple of songs from the early 70's come to mind. Gimme Dat Ding and Chick-A-Boom (Don't Ya Jes' Love It).

How about They're Coming to Take Me Away, Ha-Haaa! by Napolean XIV, talk about weird.

I always hated Billy Don't Be A Hero and also The Night Chicago Died, just to name a few. Unfortunately the list is too long to post. lol

A few days ago I sang some of the weirder songs from the 60's & 70's to my grandkids. They agree, we had some weird ones. I sang "The Clap Song," at least that's what I think it was called. Remember..."My mommy told me if I were goody that she would buy me"...and then it went to "3-6-9, the goose drank wine, the monkey chewed tobacco on the streetcar line" (or something like that)...and then clapping. And who can forget "I've Got a Daisy on my Toe" by the Smother's Brothers? "Tio Toe Through the Tulips?" I showed them a video of Tiny Tim singing the song and my teeange grandkids howled with laughter. "We All Live in a Yellow Submarine?" Ugh. I never understood that one. Can you think of other weird songs from your teens?
