Disclaimer: Whatever you do, DO NOT read this during church service, while attending a funeral, with a full bladder, while someone (you care about) is attempting to offer you a heartfelt and humble apology, or while the person next to you in bed attempts to sleep (unless you are mad at that person). Why? Because in all likelihood you will not be able to control your hysterical laughing which will quickly turn to crying. So, what is the conclusion? Don't read this book! Unless you need an awesome laugh.
This book is soooo funny. If you think you know every word to every song...guess again. I was in stitches reading the "missed" words to popular songs. You know...we've all done it...filled in the blanks when we weren't sure what was being sung! If you want a good, light, hilarious read, this is the perfect book.
This book is like one long newspaper column. It gives the results of the "bad song survey" but not much more.
In the chapter"songs people get wrong", he mentions the confusing lyracs, but never tells you what the actual ones are.
It is a very light read, and you can get through it in one sitting.
This was a very entertaining audio book to listen to while driving around town. We all have songs that drive us batty, so even when I wasn't familiar with one of the songs Barry was making fun of, I could still appreciate the humor. The book is best enjoyed by folks who are familiar of music from the 1970's--which, fortunately, I am.
