LOL  :et:

Marilyn Monroe

National Anthem - (it's not in the lyrics but in the vid she portrays marilyn in the beginning)

 

Crime
Go Go Dancer - "Is it a crime?"

 

Die
​Live or Die  - "It's either live or die"

 

Fun
This is what makes us girls - "Everybody knew we had too much fun"

Soft Drinks

Cola: "My pussy tastes like Pepsi cola"

Serial Killer: "You can see me drinking cherry Coke"

Diet Mountain Dew: "Diet Mountain Dew, baby, New York City"

[I know there's more, but I can't think of them right now]

Hmmm, yeah. It's interesting how many products/brands she sings about. There's a lot of them:

 

All the cars she mentions. I'm sure someone has listed them before including Bugatti and Chevrolet.

Asics

Grand Ole Opry (okay not a brand or product, I suppose it's trademarked though)

Cherry Schnapps, Pabst Blue Ribbon, Bacardi

Ruby Tuesday

 

Other than Jaguar, I wonder if any other brand is paying her to mention their brands in her songs. Good way to make even more money. :dmd:

Lana and proper nouns. 

There we go! I was racking my brain, trying to find a new title for this thread, and now I have one.

Thank you, M0N1k3Я. :cuteface:

But...the previous title was more descriptive and accurate, as this thread is about more than just proper nouns.  :uh:

 

 

Man, home on a Friday night debating thread titles on a music forum...
