What the #covfefe?! Trump Has Nothing On Songwriters… The Most Nonsensical Song Titles Of All Time

Trump#Trump set the internet on fire today trying to guess the true meaning of an apparent mis-spelling tweeted as #covfefe. But Comrade Combover has nothing on the songwriters that create new words to fit the music; and some non-words even became accepted vocabulary.  Bootylicious anyone?


While the internet is still trying to figure out the true meaning of “covfefe,” the fine folks a Deezer, also amused by the President’s tweet, were inspired to put together a “What the #covfefe?” playlist of the most popular songs with nonsensical titles. Listen below.

Some examples:

  • Hakuna Matata – Nathan Lane, Ernie Sabella, Jason Weaver, Joseph Williams
  • Sussudio – Phil Collins
  • Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da – The Beatles
  • Do Wah Diddy Diddy – Manfred Mann

  • Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo – Louis Armstrong
  • Alley Oop – The Beach Boys
