This is why the internet exists

Have you ever been singing along with a great song on the radio - you even have most of the words right - but you really have no idea what it's really about? YES YOU HAVE!!

I've been singing "Viva la Vida" by Cold Play for months now just SURE that it was all about Elvis Presley - how he used to be "King" and "I used to roll the dice" (which sounded like a perfect tie in to Viva Las Vegas)...etc, etc. It made perfect since....well, most of it anyway....except the part that made NO SENSE.

Lyrics (dot com). AHA - "Roman Cavalry choirs are singing"....WHAT??

My old friend Google beckoned me... "ASK ME ANYTHING and I'LL TELL YOU THE ANSWER". So I said "OK - FINE....what does it MEAN??"

Turns out it has nothing to do with Elvis. I feel betrayed. *sigh*


  1. Learn something new every day! I have a little tag for you at my blog!

  2. HAha. I always think I know what songs are about until someone so rudely bursts my bubble!

  3. haha. Some lyrics really are a confusion. Britney Spears "If you seek Amy" still baffles me to this day.

  4. Hello, I just wanted to leave a comment and say how wonderful your blog is. I've so enjoyed my visit reading your posts and looking at your pictures. You have a heavenly header too !

    Thank you for sharing and best wishes,

  5. Ahhh...this is just another reason I love Google.

  6. I am in love with Google.

    They work miracles over there:)

  7. haha, aweee.
    That really never happens to me.
