Word Insertion Feature For Songs

Inspired by the Beatles leaving "Fucking hell!" in the final mix of Hey Jude.

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 accidentally blasted the volume on one of the Beatle's headphones.

Unrelated is the fact that my beloved California is opening up 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 again, the fuckin skies of fucking grey are fucking clear again..."

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 yourself.

Try it, it feels good. Take a favorite song and see where you can insert the F word. Yea, it's wrong, so fucking what? Fuck it! Like the lyric John Lennon or Paul McCartney immortalized in their masterpiece Hey Jude, "Fucking hell!".

And I do believe happy fucking days are fucking here again.

       So the app would be like any given song as covered by Malcolm Tucker? <link>

       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.
doctorremulac3, Mar 21 2021

       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 parts out.   

       Makes it all the more charming.
doctorremulac3, Mar 21 2021

       So that's what he was saying. Fucking hell, Doc. You're way above par. [+]

       + well i seem to do this anyway, but now it’s 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?"
pertinax, Mar 21 2021

       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 example.   

       "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.
doctorremulac3, Mar 21 2021

       "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..."
tatterdemalion, Mar 21 2021

       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.

       Tat, that's brilliant!   

       (Xen) No-fu-hk-ing-way!   

       That made my day! Right before I posted this idea I read it and said “This is insane, you know that right? It’s 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 thing! I’m not alone in having such a warped sense of humor after all!
doctorremulac3, Mar 21 2021

       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!
doctorremulac3, Mar 22 2021

       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 definitely not!
hippo, Mar 22 2021

       Ahh, the "cheap imitation stand-in" swear words.   

       Crud, shoot, darn, but non dare stand in for the master of all swear words. The one that shows you mean business, you're reached the end of your rope or are really happy or don't even care.   

       The most powerful and useful word in the English language and yet it's shunned. "Don't let that word into the word ball, it's crude and vile!" So the balls could be swinging to the left and to the right, and there's our word, crying its little eyes out, un-invited.   

       Well f word, I appreciate you.
doctorremulac3, Mar 22 2021

       //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.
