Lyricbuster: where hyperbolic lyrics are lovingly dismantled...

Unbeknownst to many,  Marvin Gaye created an Orwellian nadir that brought him to the brink of madness.  Few realise that Justin Timberlake spent twenty-five years in the woods, 

constructing a makeshift dam to punish his ex.  Fewer still are aware "Teddy Bears' Picnic" is actually a call to ursine arms that guarantees a carnage.  And history has (mercifully) drawn a veil across the unsettling romantic tendencies of Gene Pitney, where not even the grave could keep him from his lover.

Until now.

Enter the world of Lyricbuster: where fifteen seemingly innocuous lyrics are dissected, using a blend of physics, mathematics, biology...and a deep affection for the peculiarities of the English language.

Whether it's the temporal defiance of Wang Chung, the disturbing lengths Whitney Houston would go to get her man, or the unremitting horror at the heart of "It's Raining Men", you'll never listen to these songs the same way again.
