11 Of The Most Nonsensical Lyrics From 2015

You've been singing a bunch of gibberish.

1. Galantis, "Peanut Butter Jelly"

Atlantic Records

"Spread it like peanut butter jelly
Do it like you owe me some money
Money, money, money

What are we spreading in this scenario? And how do you spread something — anything! — like you owe someone money?

2. Calvin Harris and Disciples, "How Deep Is Your Love"


"How deep is your love?
Is it like the ocean?
What devotion? Are you?

It doesn't matter if you hear "what devotion? are you?" as two questions or one, the line of questioning is still pretty incoherent.

3. Major Lazer and DJ Snake, "Lean On (ft. MØ)"


"Blow a kiss, fire a gun
We need someone to lean on

Not really grasping how these ideas are connected.

4. Soulja Boy, "Hurricane"

Soulja Boy

"Hop in the Ferrari, cause I want to roll
Diamonds is up in my chain and in my earlobes
I don't know, I don't know
Diamonds, they covered in snow

It honestly sounds like Soulja Boy gave up midway through the song.

5. Zedd, "I Want You To Know (ft. Selena Gomez)"


"I’m slipping down a chain reaction
Here I go, here I go, here I go go
And once again, I’m yours in fractions
It takes me down, pulls me down, pulls me down low

How do you slip down a chain reaction? Does that cause you to be fractioned? Selena Gomez sounds so confident singing all of this that I want to believe that it adds up to something coherent but it doesn't.

6. Ariana Grande, "Focus"


"And if my real ain't real enough
I'm sorry for you, bae

Grammar continues to be a problem for Ariana Grande.

7. Selena Gomez, "Good For You (ft. A$AP Rocky)"


"I'm on my 14 carats
I'm 14 carat
Doing it up like Midas

Selena, you're killing me.

8. Miley Cyrus, "Dooo It!"


"So peace mu'fuckers (do it)
Why do they put the dick in the pussy?
Fuck you

I know coherence isn't really Miley Cyrus' thing at the moment but still.

9. Sam Bruno, "Search Party"

Sam Bruno

"Jamaica, jumping over the equator
While we underneath the water, we could ride the waves


10. Eden Xo, "The Weekend"

Eden Xo

"Gettin' dumb in the morning, dumb in the evening
Dumb like a cherry-flavored dum-dum

This is dumb. Dumb like a cherry-flavored dum-dum lollipop.

11. Nick Jonas, "Levels"


"Yeah, heaven can’t reach us
Yeah, we’re high-fiving Jesus

Setting aside the fact that it's weird to talk about high-fiving Jesus in a song about sex, where exactly is this high-five happening? Doesn't Jesus chill in heaven?
