The Joint Radio Show

Jan 21, 2022

First up, let us acknowledge that the misheard lyric meme is tired, dated and had burnt itself out way before memes even existed.

Having said that, we did have cause to stop and stare in wonder at our speakers the other week when we listened to the opening verse of The Weeknd's "Less Than Zero". The accompanying  lyric video confirmed that we had misunderstood the words and that the couplet in question wasn't actually hippo & Zippo but hero & symbol.

Far be it from us to advise Mr. Tesfaye on song writing, but we just can't help but feel that our take is slightly better.  After all, it does actually rhyme. Plus, no matter what anybody tells us, we still hear a song about semiaquatic mammals and lighters.

And on with the show...
