Robin Thicke’s hit song “Blurred Lines” has made quite the stir in the past year, prompting outcry generally saved for Southern politicians’ stances on birth control or gay marriage. Despite all this controversy over intentions, the tune and its marked “Hey, hey, hey”s is catchy, a fact that fills many a forward thinking person with guilt; to our combined relief, “Weird Al” Yankovic has provided a solution. Now, the same tune has been put to different, more Core related lyrics. Instead of “Blurred Lines” we now have “Word Crimes”, a spunky song outcrying the dastardly degradation of grammar and syntax on the internet. This song, besides reminding the general public to stay away from lazy one-letter words and “to who”s also cautions against the incorrect use of the world literally. Even the oxford comma makes an appearance. From Thicke’s blurred lines to Yankovic’s clear grammatical laws, this tune has definitely taken a turn for the better.
So here it is, the guilt free grammar song the features dancing punctuation, not mostly naked women. Enjoy and let us know what you think.
