Fear of the Duck

Song/Artist: Can I Play With Madness – Iron Maiden

Original Lyric: Can I play with madness?

True story: When I was at primary school we all had to bring in a song to play the rest of the class. My choice was Jive Bunny and the Master Mixers – a gambit to win the respect and admiration of my peers which backfired spectacularly – but it was roundly trounced by this hard lad who bought in Bring Your Daughter To The Slaughter. Within seconds of it playing all the girls were beaming at him with doe-eyed longing while the boys cowered in fear of the Playground’s New Overlord. It took me 10 years to forgive Iron Maiden for that. Anyway, here’s the old, long-haired and thoroughly dishevelled Bruce Dickinson (who looks miles more fun than the newer, short-haired and reasonably well-kempt Bruce Dickinson) playing with magnets.

scaramouche did you kill the jill dando mid


Song/Artist: Bohemian Rhapsody – Queen

Original Lyric: Scaramouche! Scaramouche! Will you do the fandango?

So this one’s proved a little contentious with some – to which I say “I man can’t help what lyrics he mishears” (although he probably can help which misheard lyrics he illustrates but that’s a matter for another day)…

Song/Artist: This Charming Man – The Smiths

Original Lyric: This charming man…

More of a misheard song title than a lyric but this is the one that got me wired on the idea. That, and I’ve always wanted to see Morrissey in a kebab shop.
