When All is Said and Done

Fifty Years of Popular Songs Condensed Into Single Sentences - Marc Haynes

I really love McSweeney’s. Clever, clever writing that always hits its mark. This one, for list makers, music lovers, lovers, losers and everyone else. The most ingenious thing I have read this weekend.

I had no idea it was all this simple.

Read the whole thing here.

The Beatles
, "I Want to Hold Your Hand"
I want to do it with you.

Marvin Gaye, "Let's Get It On"
I want to do it with you.

Led Zeppelin, "Whole Lotta Love"
I want to do it with you.

Frank Sinatra, "Strangers in the Night"
I'm drunk and I want to do it with you.

Elvis Presley, "Hound Dog"
You're doing it with everyone.

I want this comment to do it with you.

Oh my good day! Excellent!

My favourites were Patsy Cline and Kings of Leon. I'll be chuckling for a while yet.

Allison, Dale, Barbara,

This one definitely hit the mark with me. Very, very clever stuff. McSweeney's stuff is always such a great thing to find in the bookstores too!
