Let’s be honest: music is no good for reinforcing proper grammar habits, even if we all love it.
However, I think for most songs, we kind of know when they’re abusing grammatical conventions to fit the rhyme.
There are times, though — times like these — when the errors are so subtle (and commonly-used!), that we may not even realize they’re happening.
As a result, we get LOTS of erroneous impressions, and when the opportunity arises to use the right version, it just doesn’t sound “right.”
In episode 44 of the Vocabbett podcast, we dive into a few more songs with a grammar error so subtle, and so frequently-made, you might not even realize it’s an error!
