Word Salad Wednesday – Lordi: Get Heavy

“Warp into Monster Disco Hell!”

Boy, oh boy, oh boy.  This one’s a hot mess.  I’d use the excuse that the band is Finnish and not singing in their native tongue, except I’m pretty sure that Tomi Putaansuu’s (OK, brief interruption. Because I am just proud as hell that I spelled that right, in the first try, before I looked it up. End interruption.) English is better than mine, at least in interviews. And they have plenty of songs that make perfect (if gruesome) sense. This one though, holy cow!

I mean when you start out with such eloquent verbalistic stylings as

Spasmodic eighty four
Electric dinosaur
Desperado vampire

there’s really no place to go but up, right? Oh.

OK, it’s a bad sign when my misheard lyrics make more sense than the real ones, sigh…

Here’s the whole enchilada (for your perusing pleasure)

Ooh whoa hey

Spasmodic eighty four
Electric dinosaur
Desperado vampire
This heavy weight mystique
Way out of your league
I trust my vision in fire

Warp into monster disco hell
Go crazy in the haze
Enter the freaky race
Pave the way for the grand cliché
Now the monsters break their chains

Ooh it’s time to get heavy, Yeah it’s time to get heavy again
Yeah it’s time to get heavy, Yeah it’s time to get heavy again

The powerbeat is back

Monster squad attack

Aah I’m the king of night
An iron parasite
I’m a walking wonder
No I don’t need no sense
‘Cause it’s a weak defense
I’m the rider of thunder

Warp into monster disco hell
Go crazy in the haze
Enter the freaky race
Pave the way for the grand cliché
Now the monsters break their chains

Ooh it’s time to get heavy, Yeah it’s time to get heavy again
Yeah it’s time to get heavy, Yeah it’s time to get heavy again

The powerbeat is back

Monster squad attack
