They Might Be Giants would appear to have a few contenders, although I don't know many of their songs. "Birdhouse In Your Soul" has " filibuster vigilantly."

Kaiser Chiefs offer "Drifting apart like a plate tectonic" on "Oh My God."

Brian Eno might win here and there:-
"Cindy Tells Me" has "Left the Hotpoints to rust in the kitchenettes."
"Sky Saw" has "Open stick and delphic doldrums."
"Backwater" has "If you study the logistics/ and heuristics of the mystics/ you will find that their minds rarely move in a line."

I thought this was in a Dan Fogelberg song, but I searched his lyrics and couldn't find it: about love once deceased "not easily exhumed". (If it's any help, the previous line is "...precious flesh is greedily consumed"--and no, it's not a cannibalism song!)

Billy Joel's "We Didn't Start the Fire" is full of references I don't think you'll find in many songs, i.e. "children with thalidomide."

What about "Palindrome" in erm, "I Palindrome I" by They Might Be Giants?

And "Cindy Tells Me" also features the word "maisonette". That sounds unique to me.

Found a couple of your words in other songs:

The (English)Beat's "Jeanette"

"All Set Luncheonette, kitchenette to let, I bet to get hamburgette again."

and Rhett Miller's "Singular Girl"

"You can blame it on the moonlight, blame it on plate tectonics , thought I wasn't listening but I was."

It is. Called Make Love Stay. Except it's mystery, not love, that is not easily exhumed.

"Broncing buck" in American Pie by Don McClean. Never heard broncing in a song besides that one.
Lightning Crashes by Live has "her placenta falls to the floor."
Both of these are definite pop hits.

As not really pop songs, Shriekback has several:
"Only anacrusis, the main event remains" from Faded Flowers
"to be the daleks of God" in Hammerheads
"parthenogenesis" was already mentioned (yah, another Shriekback fan!)

one of Air Supply's lesser known songs has the word "potato chips", I can't remember which one now.

In googling though I've discovered that a Snoop Doggy Dog (:yuck:)song has the word potato chips in it as well.

Just that with the Air Supply one its totally out of left field and does not even FIT with the rest of the song.

Three Cool Cats also contains a line about potato chips. It is mostly credited to the Beatles, as it was on the 'Deccagone' bootleg. I'm sure it must have been done earlier by someone else though. I post the quote as is, ignoring the archaic spelling of potato.

quote:
Three cool chicks
are walking down the street
swinging their hips,
splitting up a bag of potatoe chips
I think cool cats really did flip.
Three cool chicks
Three cool chicks

As I'm sure Dan Quayle could tell you, there's no 'e' in 'potato'.

Anyway, how about Elton John's "Can You Feel the Love Tonight?" from "The Lion King"? It has the line:

It's enough to make kings and vagabonds believe the very best

I always thought Sir Elton wrote that song just to use the word vagabonds.

Joan Baez used "vagabond" to describe Bob Dylan in "Diamonds and Rust." A Google lyrics search turns up several other songs with "vagabond" as part of the title or lyrics. It's quite a popular word with people straining for the romantic-poet genre.

Guess I just don't listen to enough romantic-poet songs. It still sounds wierd to me in "Can You Feel the Love Tonight?" though. It's like it just comes out of nowhere.

One of my personal favorites is "Drag On Forever" by Ric Ocasek, as I don't think I've ever heard a glockenspiel being mentioned in a song before:

"i felt the pressure
but I passed it off
I heard your glockenspiel
pounding soft"

"Lust for Kicks" by The Cars has the line "she's got her robuck purse". "Take What You Want" by The Cars has Salamander and Magnesium.

Ric Ocasek also has a song called "Crackpot" and I don't know how many times that's been used in song lyrics. [Of course, I can't count Ric's new words like noisician, Nexterday, fuct, etc.]

"Too Late God" by Bob Geldof mentions male-o-menopause. "Attitude Chicken" by Bob Geldof informs us that "The Politically Correct are the Nazis of our times".

I'm sure there's more, I just don't want to look further.

peace & take care,

"I'd like to build myself a house out of plasticene" is a line in a song on Oasis' Definitely Maybe, though for some reason, the actual name of the song has escaped me for the moment. Then again, they always wanted to be a Beatles ripoff band. Still a good album, though.

The Foo Fighters use the word "paramania" in "Wind Up." I spent a lot of time trying to find a definition for the word, to no avail. I'm assuming it's made-up, then, but it sure sounds like a real word to me.

I can't find the exact lyrics, but in a Geddy Lee (of Rush fame) solo song, he uses the word "nihilistic" in one of his songs. My wife & think he was trying to keep up with Peart on heady lyrics...

Men At Work's 'Down Under' mentions Vegemite sandwiches, which is certainly unusual in the US.

Max_Renn had mentioned Vegemite earlier but the word appears in a John Williams' song "True Blue"

True Blue, is it me and you
Is it Mum and Dad, is it a cockatoo
Is it standing by your mate when he's in a fight
Or just Vegemite
True-ue-ue Blue, I'm asking you


and also in The Vegemite Song (Every Aussie knows this tune)

We're happy little vegemites, as bright, as bright can be...

I'm sure there are others.

"I Want You" by Savage Garden. Mentions both cherry cola and magenta [Smile]

Every time I see your face
I just close my eyes and I am taken to a place
Where your crystal mind and magenta feelings
Take up shelter in the base of my spine
Sweet like a chic-a-cherry cola

But thanks, I've often wondered what the lyrics to I Want You are - he sings it so fast.

"Violet" by Hole uses amethyst
"Mining For Gold" by Cowboy Junkies uses sillicosis (but it is a remake of a traditional song)
"Urethane" by Fu Manchu uses... urethane
"Alan Is A Cowboy Killer" by McLusky uses fluffer (in the naughty sense)
"Sink To The Beat" by Cursive uses defecate

To be honest, I think I'm cheating. The OP did say POP songs, and of the ones I've listed, only one was popular.

Dave Pirner uses the word 'Urinal' in Soul Asylum's 'String Of Pearls' :-

"Who died in the bathroom, hit his head on a urinal"

for further joy, he also rhymes it with 'funeral'.

Also, 'Sometime to return' has 'Saddle up your salamander'.

Actually, "exquisite" isn't a bad contribution in and of itself.

My first thought in relation to this thread is from Blood, Sweat, and Tears' "I Can't Quit Her":

quote:
She had a woman's touch
And a young girls eyes,
And in seconds flat I was proselytized



--------------------
Suddenly she realizes that amongst a crazy drunken schoolmarm, a navy swim instructor with a food fetish, a southern hick farmer, a porn star turned used car dealer, and a horny ex-football player, she won't be this strange outsider.

Most of the Cocteau Twins' catalogue featuring Elizabeth Frazer's glossolalia style lyrics. Just about everything she sang was unique!

Mind you using a fancy word like glossolalia does bring to mind that Australian band 'Something for Kate' had a hit with the song 'Echolalia'...
