10 Funny Pickup Lines from Song Lyrics

pickuplines

We’ve all heard songs with ridiculous pickup lines, but is anyone crazy enough to try these out on a stranger in the real world? Actually, yes. His name is Tommy Wooldridge, age 24, and he calls himself a “romantically handicapped filmmaker.”

His friend has been filming Tommy’s attempts to meet girls in the Tennessee area by using lyrics from songs by Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift, Nicki Minaj, Rihanna and more top 40 singers.

The videos (watch one below) appear on YouTube under the hashtag #VEVOLyricLine, and the best part is that at the end of each one, Tommy asks viewers to suggest lines from other songs that he should use.

So we at MyMusicCloud thought we’d help him out by listing some funny pickup lines from songs in our Music Store. Here are 10 song lyrics we’d like to see Tommy use. Can you think of some better ones? If so, post them in the comments section below.

“Are you from Tennessee? ‘Cause, baby, you’re the only 10 I see.” – “Pickup Truck” by Shane Yellowbird.

“Could you love me in a Bentley? Could you love me on a bus? I’ll ask 21 questions, and they all about us, ” — “21 Questions” by 50 Cent.

“Punk rock girl, give me a chance, Punk rock girl, let’s go slamdance, We’ll dress like Minnie Pearl, Just you and me, punk rock girl” – “Punk Rock Girl” by The Dead Milkmen.

“If I said I want your body, would you hold it against me?” – “Hold It Against Me” by Britney Spears.

“You’re the one for me, fatty, you’re the one I really, really love,” — “You’re the One for Me, Fatty” by Morrissey.

“I’m like the Afrocentric Asian, half-man half-amazing,” – “It Aint Hard to Tell” by Nas.

“Let’s have some fun, this beat is sick. I want to take a ride on your disco stick,” –“Lovegame” by Lady Gaga.

“Can I get some fries with that shake-shake booty? If looks could kill, you would be an Uzi” – “Shoop” by Salt N Pepa.

“Hello, is it me you’re looking for?” “Hello” by Lionel Richie.

“I like the way you work it, no diggity, I’d like to bag it up,” – “No Diggity” by Blackstreet featuring Dr. Dre, Queen Pen.

Watch Tommy Try To Meet Women Using Justin Bieber Lyrics

Is Your Music Playlist Male or Female?

Are guys simply born loving rap and rock? Do women really gravitate toward dance and teen pop groups like One Direction? Or are these just popular stereotypes?

Paul Lamere ponders questions like these a lot.  As Director of Developer Platform for The Echo Nest, a music intelligence company in Massachusetts, he often dives into data trends like this on his blog, Music Machinery. This month, he compared the streaming playlists of 200,000 male and female U.S. listeners to find out if there are such things as “gender-specific” music preferences.  For instance, if someone found your lost phone or iPod and started playing your music collection, could they easily tell if you’re a guy or a gal?

To keep things simple, he zoomed in on the top 40 pop singers and bands preferred by both sexes. As you might expect, singers that ladies enjoy but their male counterparts shun include: Christina Aguilera, Justin Bieber, Ciara, Ke$ha, Avril Lavigne, Jennifer Lopez, Demi Lovato, Nicki Minaj, Shakira, Britney Spears, and, yes, One Direction.  While artists preferred solely by dudes include: Avicii, J.Cole, Kid Cudi, Wiz Khalifa,  Kendrick Lamar, Bob Marley, T.I., Linkin Park, Queen, and rappers Kanye West and 50 Cent. 

But then things get crazy: You might think that, after his troubles with Rihanna, Chris Brown would score higher with guys but, in fact, Brown rated No. 11 among women and No. 15 with men. Rihanna is the queen of the ladies’ chart at No. 1, but guys also love her, putting her at No. 8.  Katy Perry, Lil Wayne, Lady Gaga, and even Miley Cyrus are also enjoyed by both genders.  

Guys’ favorite pop performer? Mad rapper Eminem.  And while Kanye got no love from the ladies at all, nice guy Bruno Mars landed in the top 5 for both sexes.

At MyMusicCloud, we don’t judge, we just recommend great new music for you on our Albums page based on whatever your favorites are. So you can enjoy the freedom of listening anywhere on any device, regardless of brand.

 

The Sound of the Olympics: From Opening Ceremony Music to Athletes’ Favorite Bands

Get ready for an ear-tastic explosion of music Friday when the 2012 Summer Olympics kick off in London and are broadcast around the world. Olympic mix-masters say they’ve compiled 2,012 songs to play over the two-week course of the Games. Eighty-six of those will just be for the splashy opening ceremony, a mashup of iconic British songs from the Sex Pistols to Adele called “A Symphony of British Music” played against an English countryside backdrop.

MyMusicCloud invites you to get in on the fun by earmarking your favorite songs and making your own Olympic music power playlist. Download them from our music store (search 11 million songs) or upload your own recordings to our cloud-based music storage and delivery system from your private collection.

Wondering where to start? How about some of the bands the Olympic athletes are listening to?

U.S. women’s soccer star Hope Solo tells Self magazine her favorite pump-up song is “Ragged Mile” by the John Butler Trio. Sixteen-time U.S. swimming medalist Michael Phelps says he gets pumped to Afrojack, Avicii, and Skrillex. His teammate Ryan Lochte prefers Lil Wayne and Jay-Z. U.S. teen gymnasts McKayla Maroney and Jordyn Wieber adore Justin Bieber, while Gabby Douglas rocks out to Beyoncé and Rihanna. And if soccer sensation Neymar De Silva scores a goal for Brazil, expect to hear singer Michel Telo’s “Ai Se Eu Te Pego!” fill the stadium. (It translates into “Oh, If I Catch You!” in English.)

As we mentioned earlier this month, official Olympics theme songs have also been recorded by Muse, Elton John vs. Pnau, Delphic, electronic gurus the Chemical Brothers, and rapper Dizzee Rascal. At the Games themselves, the Scissor Sisters and Rizzle Kicks will play surprise gigs for spectators, and Blur, New Order and The Specials will rock out at the closing ceremony on August 12. So show your national pride and rock out with the jocks this Olympics season!
