A song that used to get played on the radio a lot was S.O.S. by Rihanna. Every single time I heard this song it made me think of the exact same thing when it reached the chorus of the song. At first I simply misunderstood what she was singing, but later I couldn’t lose the thought I had come up with the first time. This is the bit I mean:
S.O.S. please someone help me
It’s not healthy for me to feel this
Y O U are making this hard
When I first heard this I thought Rihanna was saying it wasn’t healthy for her to “feel this way” and then proceeding to say “oh you are making this hard.” Some lyrics sites I searched actually came to similar conclusions.
When I realised she was spelling out a word I immediately assumed the “are” was just the letter R. This would mean she sang “your making this hard” which probably a lot of Rihanna listeners wouldn’t grumble about. They can’t use the correct “you’re” or “your” because they’re only 14 and they’re too busy looking after their babies.
Whenever I hear this song that bit annoys me and I’m forced to switch to another radio station immediately. One day all stations will cease playing Rihanna’s music and I will only have to switch stations when one of the other 1000 annoying songs come on.
