Our first post on illustrated lyrics is one of our most popular ones, ever. It seems you share our obsession, hurrah! It is due time, then, to share some more visualizations that struck us as interesting and funny. Some interior design there, too. Again this list contains songs we love for the most part. So, for your viewing pleasure, here come 10 more ways to visualize lyrics:
1. The literal interpretation
Set fire to the rain by Adele (source)
2. The eye-chart
3 little birds by Bob Marley (source)
3. The equation
Every day is like Sunday by Morrissey (source)
4. The upholstered armchair
Perfect day by Lou Reed (source)
5. The stencil
Maps by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs (source)
6. The cross-stitch
Please, please, please let me get what I want by The Smiths (source)
7. The street-sign
Stop! In the name of love by Diana Ross & the Supremes (source)
8. The word-match
Mambo no 5 by Lou Vega (source)
9. The staircase
Hello, I love you by The Doors (source)
10. The door-sign
Push it by Salt-n-Pepa (source)

In the early days of the web, Am I Right was one of the funniest sites there was: a database of misheard lyrics. The misunderstanding of the psychedelic Beatles lyrics “A girl with kaleidoscope eyes” with the absurdist “A girl with colitis goes by” is still one of the funniest things I’ve ever heard.
And now there is a wonderful infograph by direct lyrics, to summarize the most common mistakes. Wasn’t it about time?
By the way, Am I Right has also published a collection of misheard lyrics in Hold Me Closer, Tony Danza: And Other Misheard Lyrics.
See the full infograph after the jump.

Filming from below and filming from above. Two different techniques, two different approaches, both contributing to the film’s essence.
Kogognada has created two short fascinating videos; the first one is a compilation of Quentin Tarantino’s shots filmed from below.
And the second one is compilation of Wes Anderson’s overhead shots of hands doing all sort of things.
Pretty cool. Don’t you think?
