Still High From Yesterday?

I hope you guys are all still high on yourselves!
Don't let Bruce bring you down!

Electric Light Orchestra - Don't Bring Me Down
(peep the neon glowing hot-dog. i've actually seen this when i was high.)

here's a really non-interesting factoid about the song from WIKIPEDIA:
"A common mondegreen [a mishearing or misinterpretation of a phrase] in the song is the perception that, following the title line, Jeff Lynne shouts "Bruce!" . However, according to liner notes, he is actually saying a made-up word "Groos". This is similar to a German word for "greeting", Gruß possibly referring to the Bavarian greeting Grüß Gott the group would have heard while recording the album in Munich. However, after the song's release, so many people had misinterpreted the word as Bruce that the band actually changed the lyrics and began to sing the word as Bruce."



  1. It seems like music videoes were made for people high on drugs.
