Oasis - Standing On The Shoulder Of Giants
If it's a really, really, really big giant it might make sense.
Should be "Shoulders of Giants." Apparently someone jotted the title down on a napkin while Noel was one-eyed drunk at a pub.
I love this album, by the way. It came out right around the time my first son was born. I was a huge Oasis fan at the time, and so when he was crying I would hold him and bounce up and down on my knees to "Go Let It Out." Plus it has "Little James" on it, which is an insufferably maudlin tune--unless you a new pop. I remember someone saying at the time, "Everyone is crapping on this album, but I think it might be one of those records people appreciate in years to come--as opposed to 'Be Here Now,' which everyone went gaga over during the first week and then dismissed as ****." Or something along those lines.
REM - Lifes Rich Pageant
The Tubes - "What do you want from Live"
... but I guess that one is an intentional typo.
Odessey and Oracle
Siamese giants, perhaps?
I hope your son has fond memories of that , nothing in the world greater than being a new Dad !
For the longest I misspelled the phrase "never mind" as "nevermind" because of the Nirvana album.
Surprised to see Slade's album titles weren't as funky as their song titles.
You Boyz Make Big Noize
It's a minor example but it's always bothered me that the Scooter album that contains the single The Age Of Love is titled Age Of Love, not The Age Of Love.
Nah, that's a spelling error, not a grammatical one.
Purposely left in.
Outside the academic field of Linguistics, the term 'grammar' is often used more broadly to include conventions of spelling and punctuation, which linguisticians would not normally consider being part of grammar but rather orthography, the conventions written language.
Yep...misspellings are allowed here!
I know I’m opening myself up for ridicule with this thread if I ever make a grammatical slip up with one of my replies...but that’s ok!
Well if we’re opening this up to spelling errors too, let’s throw in
Band of Gypsys
Or it could be “standing on the shoulder of a giant”
Also a famous quote originally from the 12th century (the grammatically correct version.)
that's okay, just blame them on auto-correct, which, in my experience, causes more misspells than it corrects! Honestly, I've made an internet career of policing my phone's auto-correct function. I'd just turn it off, but it is still useful for the odd brain fart when I'm unsure of an uncommon word's spelling - but it has to be a miss that is WAAAAY off to begin with!
Any album with 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s or 90’s in the title.
Most are multi-artist comps, but here’s an exception: R. Kelly’s Born into the 90’s
You Are What You Is, of course
Spelling and grammar are distinct, although the line is blurred a bit at times because so many people use autocorrect, which may introduce a correctly spelled word that is used incorrectly ('your' instead of 'you're' being extremely common.)
Separate names with a comma.
