I was listening to Lookin' Up on the latest BNL CD, the delightfully-named Fake Nudes, when I heard the lyric: "I feel like a lightning strike / Every time I rock the mic."
This was about the hundredth time I'd heard that line, since I'm back to listening to only one song per CD on repeat, but it made me remember that I had been slacking off on my job of Unsolicited CD Proofreader. (See: BNL, Barenaked Ladies Are Men and Nellie McKay, Pretty Little Head.)
So, I had to check the liner notes to see if BNL spelled "lightning" correctly, or if it's spelled as "lightening" again.
I am glad to report they spelled it correctly this time.
Sadly, a few lines earlier they had "one foot on the peddle / One hand on the wheel."
I mean, I could try to tell myself that it's a pun, they're driving off to peddle their music, but there's also a "you" in place of a "your" -- well, it doesn't speak well for any proofreaders at Vanguard Records.
