* Andy Partridge admitted he was forced to butcher the line "Please don't pull me out/I'm relax in the undertow" in {{XTC}}'s "Summer's Cauldron" simply because that extra syllable from the correct grammar would screw up the meter.

** Also from Diamond Rio is "Walkin' Away", with the line "These occasional moments of weakness only ''makes'' our love more strong". Subect/verb disagreement, anyone?
