OMG LAND EARTH BIRDS FLYING. I just laughed soooo hard. That was literally the only line I actually knew in the song!!
Vinyl albums? How prehistoric. But I love that you got the Leonard Bernstein part wrong, since that’s often the only part people get right!
What diaphenia said about Leonard Bernstein…though honestly, that’s like the one song in the world where everyone should be forgiven from mishearing all of the lyrics.
Everyone on the planet gets a pass on effing “End of the World As We Know It” because, seriously, it’s hopeless.
lollll REM. understandable, cause that song is super fast, but LAND EARTH BIRDS FLYING.
*le sigh* i got mocked about that by a boyfriend several years later — which is the ONLY reason that i found out that it was “Leonard Bernstein.” i am not a musicals girl (unless it’s Annie or Grease/Grease 2) — i had no idea who Leonard Bernstein was. (i’m still not all that familiar, to be honest.) so i had NO CONTEXT that those sounds should make out his name and “land, earth, birds flying” just made SENSE. it still makes sense.
that’s my story and i’m sticking to it.
