HERE'S A QUESTION,
HAVE YOU EVER LISTEN TO A SONG AND DIDN'T
UNDERSTAND THE LYRICS THE ARTIST WAS SAYING.
JAMES BROWN AND TONI BRAXTON TO ME ARE GUILTY
OF THAT. THE WORST THING THAT CAN HAPPEN TO
A BEAUTIFUL SONG IS NOT PRONOUNCING THEIR
LYRICS PROPERLY. CAN YOU NAME SOME SONG
THAT YOU DON'T HOW WHAT THE HAM SAMMICH THEIR

LOL!!! So could I. One of the ones that makes me laugh to this day is that when I was a kid and the Four Tops sang It's The Same Old Song I thought they were singing "the Supremes, sweet melodies" and later found out they were singing "it used to bring sweet melodies."
Toni Braxton's last album was so bad in terms of being able to hear what she was singing that I stopped listening to the album (of course, not being very good helped). And the liner notes are so small these days you don't have a chance of reading what the lyrics are (at least to these old eyes!!)

... "A Whiter Shade Of Pale" by PROCOL HARUM... even SHORTY LONG, among others, recorded that song. You guys from the UK and the USA who have English as your first language... will you please explain the lyrics in that song for me? (:-)

On quite a few songs, I don't know what Patti LaBelle is saying. To be honest, it doesn't bother me because to me she is so vocally gifted that I'd pay to hear her hum.
But with singers who aren't as blessed, not understanding the words they say can be frustating.

You know... I really love her music, but the lyrics, as she sings it sometimes, and that's rather MORE than less, well I'm gonna tell 'ya, I find her singing pronunciations many times hard to define-- in many of her songs.
ANITA BAKER. Really.
Now is it really just 'me', or, is it really... just 'her'?
C'mon now, you tell me...!

You are right about Michael McDonald. One of my favorite things that he sings is "I Can Let Go Now" and I didn't know what the words were until I heard Dionne Warwick's version on her Luther Vandross produced album.
