IN fact, there have been so many lyrical changes to the most familiar of songs that I shan’t be able to cover them all. But I will do what I can to make a difference. They were after all the songs of our youth. The ones we sang unashamedly while driving to work in the car, despite everyone staring at us from the next lane over, because for whatever reason the rules of social behavior change when people climb behind the wheel. The individuals I would like to hear from are the DJs. They are the ones in the trenches, laboriously dropping beats night after night while we sleep, putting their lives on the line simply so that the needle remains in the groove. Because the earth is motionless, and something needs to move. What I’m wanting to know is how many of them are affected by Mandela, being so close in proximity to the gravitational pull of the turntable.
In this update to my Mandela Effect paper, I cover The Black Eyed Peas, ‘Boom Boom Pow’, Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’, Queen’s ‘We Are Champions of the World’, The Rolling Stones ‘Paint It, Black’, and Jewel’s ‘Who Will Save Your Soul?’ Also, some updates on the Mr. Rogers song. You can read about them in the following PDF.
