I could never understand what the hell the Saturday Night Fever era BeeGees were singing about.

I know it's a classic but the Olivia Newton-John and Travolta duet "You're The One That I Want" from Grease sounds all garbled and impossible to understand. "Yutheblubbelawhaaaant." All these years, I have thought that. You would never know what they were singing unless you already knew the name of the song.

Alanis Morissette should be on top of that list.

Mandy Ingber. She sang "Top That" it Teen Witch, and it's incomprehensible how she was ever cast in this film.

The singer from Cocteau Twins. Blanking on her name but I love her voice!

I was just about to say Liz Fraser, r22. Completely, famously incomprehensible.

Me too, Rll. Remember "There's the Bathroom on the Right" by CCR?

R26, we're happy you've posted for the first time. Although we share in your excitement, we ask that you remember to use your indoor voice.%0D %0D Kidding. Yes, you are 100% right, Rufus is incomprehensible.

There's some Rufus Wainwright song that drive me crazy: it sounds as thought he's singing "you can wash my head about it..." What the fuck is he saying??

As I get older, almost all of them. Unless I already know the song, forget it. There's no closed captioning on the radio.

OP, if you don't understand why Michael McDonald and Stevie Nicks are great singers, you are the incomprehensible one.

Oh, I understand WHY they are great singers, I just can't understand WHAT they are singing!

Steve Winwood was on Letterman recently. He sounded like a parody of himself as he sang Gimme Some Lovin.

anything with Jimmy Barnes or Cold Chisel has to be up there with Springsteen for utter incomprehension.

I know the chorus to Blurred Lines ["tried to domesticate ya, but you're an animal..."] but the rest of it is just a garbled mess.
I don't see how anyone can say with a straight face that the song is perpetuating "rape culture", when the lyrics are unintelligible!

I second Patti LuPone. Forbidden Broadway did a whole song about her garbled diction in Anything Goes.

Thanks, R16. I am a child of the 80s, and I had totally forgotten about that scene.
