Put on a Poncho

One of my favorite Sheryl Crow songs is “If It Makes You Happy,’ from her self-titled second album. I’ve chosen some of her songs in karaoke booths before, and I must say that they’re quite difficult to sing--doubly so for me, because I can’t sing, although that hasn’t stopped me from doing that repeatedly in those arcade booths.

Anyway, some words to “If It Makes You Happy” are totally different. “Put on a poncho,” however, was the oddest misheard line in the song, and in its place there’s “Put on a porn show.”

Man, that’s funny. The imagery in my head is totally different now. And the song feels sadder, somehow.
