This one jars with me:
“when the sun comes up over Santa Monica Boulevard”.
Too many syllables or something!
It's actually one more syllable.... until the sun comes up over Santa Monica Boulevard

Okay 101 please explain how this one works?

Think of seven letters
Begin and end in 'C'
Like a big American car
But misspelt with a 'D'.

"Baby, I'm-a want you, baby, I'm-a need you" has always annoyed me. I don't get the "I'm-a" thing.

Duran Duran's "You're about as easy as a nuclear war" was pretty crass in an era of heightened cold war tension.
I just polished off some Low Country shrimp & grits and a mess of collards. That's a hell of a strain on the arm.

The DD one reminds me of "I'm as serious as cancer when I say rhythm is a dancer"

That was strange. To say that in the middle of a jaunty dance song just seemed wrong on every level.

I'd like to nominate every line of LFO's "Summer Girls" as it is truly, truly awful.
