I was recently given a copy of “Crap Lyrics” by Johnny Sharp, and it really is fantastic. Admittedly, it sounds like a lifeless list of rubbish lyrics from the depths of pop music, but get a few pages in and you discover just how funny it can be. All the credit must go to Sharp who manages to turn the most straightforward of words into gut – busting laughs. From Shakira to Busted, The Bee Gees to America, even the slightest verbal stumble is examined and mocked under a microscope.
A particularly spectacular theory behind Anything But The Girl’s “Like The Deserts Miss The Rain” is a must read and a guaranteed laugh.
“Crap Lyrics“ by Johnny Sharp is available from Amazon for £5.99
