WHAT IF it wasnt so?

What if, just what if, the main event in your favourite song never actually happened? What if, in an alternate, parallel universe, it was all very different?

What if Tom Petty actually did back down? What if heaven really wasn’t in the backseat of Hot Chocolate’s cadillac? What if the Brown Eyed Girls eyes were actually blue?

These are the profound musings that keep me awake at night, providing some intellectual insulation from the harshness of this reality.
The upside of course, is this exercise provides a great little semantic workout for our linguistic brains; plus, its a whole lot of fun seeing what others comes up with. But, the big plus? Its gonna generate a pretty eclectic list of songs that possibly may have been hidden from you forevermore. It just may prompt you to say. " Hey, I remember that song. Might go an learn it".
Watcha got?

…off to learn me some Hot Chocolate riffs…:notes:…


What if Paul Simon just stayed at home instead of going to Graceland (before stopping in South Africa)? He wouldn’t risk Slip Slidin Away while travelling and he could have come up with 5000 ways to leave his lover
