Right after Paul says "let her under your skin..." you can
clearly hear (now that you're listening for it) "OW!
FUCKING HELL!" supposedly because somebody
volume on one of the Beatle's headphones.
Unrelated is the fact that my beloved California is
again after this hell year of covid, death and dispair. I
found myself singing: (stop reading here if you have an
ounce of class) "Happy fucking days are fucking here
the fuckin skies of fucking grey are fucking clear
So the idea is to have a feature that allows you to insert
the F word into any song you want. You can also just to it
Try it, it feels good. Take a favorite song and see where
you can insert the F word. Yea, it's wrong, so fucking
Fuck it! Like the lyric John Lennon or Paul McCartney
immortalized in their masterpiece Hey Jude, "Fucking
And I do believe happy fucking days are fucking here

Even more vaguely related: AC/DC singing about parties in their ballroom.
Probably the greatest FU to the censors ever created. [doctorremulac3, Mar 21 2021]

||So the app would be like any given song as covered by
Malcolm Tucker? <link>
||I never noticed that before but just made it a point to listen
for it ... and there it is. Thanks!
||My pleasure. Everybody I've told about this was
delighted. Don't know why, guess it's delightful.
||Maybe it reminds us this amazingly beautiful song
was made by normal guys. Humanized it sort of. For
whatever reason it's a beautiful thing.
||because it made it through the censors of course...
||And I guess they're not sure if it was left in on
purpose or not. Kind of think Paul wouldn't have let
an f bomb endanger what was to become one of
his biggest, if not his very biggest hit. Had that
been caught, it would have been pulled from the
radio. And you really don't hear it unless you're
listening for it. I know from experience that when
you're doing a mix you tend to concentrate on the
sections your mixing and can kind of tune other
||Makes it all the more charming.
||So that's what he was saying. Fucking hell, Doc. You're
way above par. [+]
||+ well i seem to do this anyway, but now its legit!
||In folk songs, any use of "blooming", with reference to flowers,
could be replaced with "fucking" without disturbing the scansion.
"In among the fucking heather, will you go, lassie, go?"
||See? That would work, but other songs don't lend
themselves to the f word being inserted all over
the place. Ironically, Hey Jude doesn't really work
compared to the Happy Days Are Here Again
||"Hey Jude, don't (fucking) make it bad, take a
(fucking) sad song, and make it (fucking) better."
||See? Doesn't work. Clunky, arrhythmic, non musical
and stupid where the "Happy Days Are Here Again"
example is actually improved.
||"Fuck! I need somebody
Fuck! Not just anybody
Fuck! You know I need someone
||There is an old joke about how to sing "Strangers in the Night" in 5/4 time. "Strangers in the fucking night..."
||See/listen to last link by poet genius and one of
my true greats - John Cooper Clarke. A cleaned up
version of "Chicken Town" was used to play out the
final episode of the Sopranos series, much to the
delight of J.C.C.
||That made my day! Right before I posted this idea I
read it and said This is insane, you know that
right? Its dumb, crude and pointless yet you love it
for some reason. Oh well, guess I can take solace
in at least being unique.
||Then I see someone else did almost the exact same
Im not alone in having such a warped
sense of humor after all!
||LOL! Tat, that's the most beautiful thing I've ever
seen! Here I thought I was the only one on Earth to
think inserting "fuck" into every spot you can in a
song was beautiful KNOWING full well that I was the
only one on Earth who would think so, and here I find
not only am I not alone, there are many of us!
||This reminds me of the first episode of The
Hitchhikers' Guide To The Galaxy in which, when Lady
Cynthia Fitzmelton is addressing the angry crowd in
front of Arthur Dent's house, a heckler from the
crowd shouts "Why don't you push off, you cunt-faced
old bat?". The scripts have this line as 'crud-faced',
but I just checked with my MP3 of the episode and it's
||Ahh, the "cheap imitation stand-in" swear words.
||Crud, shoot, darn, but non dare stand in for the
all swear words. The one that shows you mean
you're reached the end of your rope or are really
don't even care.
||The most powerful and useful word in the English
language and yet it's shunned. "Don't let that word
the word ball, it's crude and vile!" So the balls
swinging to the left and to the right, and there's
word, crying its little eyes out, un-invited.
||Well f word, I appreciate you.
||//Don't let that word into the word ball,//
||Like a lot of things, this is environment dependent. Work
on an oil rig, down a mine or logging for example and
"fuck" is vital safety-based emphasis. The lack of crowds
in televised football reveals that "fuck" derivatives
comprise 28% of all on-field communication.
||In some labs, the majority of staff are speaking English as
a second language. This means the one or two native
speakers naturally have a very large influence on the
developing vocabularies. I heard that this can include the
boss using the phrase "fucking boner-killer" in a
conference presentation. I've heard, anyhow.
