Are Song Words Notwords?

Ever since developing my concept of Notwords (see earlier post), I’ve been working on this theory that American English is susceptible to corruption by song lyrics and artists who abuse both song lyrics and the English language.  Unfortunately, I have yet to come up with anything comprehensive in terms of research so far.

However, “American Idol” contestant Trista Giese last night (Jan. 16) took Notsinging to new heights as she incorporated a lion’s growl into her singing a tune from “Wizard of Oz.”  Watch, listen and groan here. (I actually watched this on TV, the first time ever that I’ve viewed “American Idol.”  The last time?)
