The History Of Lyrics (That Aren’t Lyrics)

Have you ever wondered why some of our favorite songs to sing along to don’t really have lyrics? Some of the biggest hits in history are just a bunch of musical gibberish, but we just can’t help to sing along to these nonsense lyrics!

The musical group, CDZA, created an experiment that explored the history of the most famous songs with lyrics that aren’t really lyrics at all.

Some of featured songs include Manfred Mann’s “Do Wah Diddy,” Van Morrison’s “Brown Eyed Girl” and Steam’s “Na Na Hey Hey (Kiss Him Goodbye).” We’ve even counted down the top ten songs with nonsense lyrics, which you can see here!
