2009 Lyrics Challenge!!! | 07/18/09

It's that time of year again. Time for the 2009 Lyrics Challenge (brought you by promotioncode.org). In case this is your first year playing, it works a little something like this. I take the first verse of a popular, well-known song (this is what separates it from the music challenges of the Urizone) and put them into Altavista's (now Yahoo) babelfish translator. The lyrics go from English to German to French back to English. It's your job to decipher the songs from this bastardization of language. As usual, the first example is a Jimi Hendrix song. When you're done, send me an email (mrcatania@gmail.com) with the artist and name of each song. Lurkers are especially encouraged to play.
