Let's play 'Spot the mistakes in the lyrics'.

If you don't understand the words then don't sing the fucking song.

:lol: I always thought that song really did have the lyrics ''wrapped up like a douche'' and wondered what it meant.

Stevie has pretty clear phrasing. So do his backup singers. So does Sinatra.

True. It's silly affectation. Some worse than others. I can't listen to Adele because all those annoying affected vowel sounds get on my nerves. 'Lorde' is even more irritating.
Sinatra's phrasing was brilliant. Very personal. Same with Bing Crosby. What's the point in singing a song if no one has a clue what the words are?

Just had a look and 'wrapped up like a douche' is apparently 'revved up like a deuce' (which makes about as much sense).

My point with Sheeran was that he's got some of the lyrics wrong, making some of the phrases nonsensical (which means he didn't understand what he was singing). Then he says sagely at the end 'he's an intense guy...' Well I suppose you would think that when you write shallow rubbish that's all about the same thing.

Re: Casper

A lyric master’s coaxing.

Joni Mitchell - Talk To Me

Since I know the lyrics well I can't really say what may be indecipherable, other than the first verse. That's a tongue-twister.
