So I was reading this discussion once, I think about Lorde maybe? And someone mentioned how more recent musicians have been using nursery rhymes in their lyrics. And I just thought, oh my God. I’ve done that. I’d no idea this was something that had kind of caught on recently. (Maybe it’s something people have always done?)
In my defence though, I only slipped the line “The old man is snoring” into Scattered Showers from Planet Mars ‘cause I thought I’d be real clever slipping a nursery rhyme lyric into a song about rain.
Hell, you know, it’s really only a spacey sounding It’s Raining, It’s Pouring with extra sprinkles and glitter for ~2012. (Christ! The final version of this song is older than I remember, I thought it was circa 2013 for some reason. God I’m so out of it with my own stuff.)
In short, we’re all unoriginal, hooray!
