Cds and their booklets. What the hell is wrong with the record companies?

I wasn't sure what I was going to post about today. I had a variety of topics but after buying shitloads of cds yesterday on my shopping spree, I decided to post about them.

But not in the usual way.

I'm talking about the slack arse people at the record company who either have really bad english skills, or they hire people who have really bad english skills.

What am I talking about?

The cd booklet!!!!

That's right.

The cd booklet where english seems to be a second language.

Adam Lambert's "For Your Entertainment" was one that I bought, and upon going through the booklet to read the lyrics, I came across the details for who wrote what and where they are, or where it was mixed etc.

Apparently, Sweden, is spelt with 2 Es.

Did you know that?

That's right, Sweden, is spelt Sweeden.


And on top of that.....the lyrics are wrong.

Well it's not like it's the first time.

Kelly Clarkson's "All I Ever Wanted" has the same problem. So do many others that I have.

But in this day and age, you would think the record company might do spellcheck before printing the damn booklet up.

That they might ACTUALLY find out what the real lyrics are.

Now that could be either the singer taking some leeway and singing what they wanted, or that the typist for the lyrics didn't read them properly.

Either way, the record company has a serious problem. Sure cds aren't selling as much as downloads, and sure, some stores are no longer selling cds like they used to.


Why can't a record company get an editor to spellcheck the insde of the booklet? They get a photographer and/or graphic artist to do the cover/inside/back shots, so why the hell are lyrics and spelling not as important?

I would ACTUALLY like to get the lyrics right when I'm singing along to the song thanks very much!

  1. I'm going to have to be the guy that everyone hates.. because.. well.. it's the part I was born to play.. and say "But there are two E's in Sweden."

    You can beat me now. I deserve it.
