After our piece remembering Toto this week, we’re in an ‘80s type of mood. So, we had a look back at some hit singles to ruin the decade with the use of a stupid word.
Michael Jackson’s smash hit has a sharp beat to proceedings. Almost as if he should have called the song Beat It, or something. Oh well. We all miss opportunities.
I Wanna Discombobulate With Somebody
Whitney Houston makes it pretty clear in this love song what she’s after.
Discombobulating in the Dark
Bruce Springsteen knows a thing or two about discombobulation. But his preference is to wait until the sun goes down.
Everybody Wants to Discombobulate the World
Tears for Fears this time out with one of the ‘80s big sax solos.
Discombobulatin’ on a Prayer
Whooooah!! Bon Jovi and his massive hair!! This song is so upbeat even an unconscious drunk would have their toe-tapping to it.
The Power of Discombobulation
Yes, that smash hit by Huey Lewis & The News. Nothing more to add here.
Don’t You (Discombobulate Me)
Simple Minds here with that track you all know from The Breakfast Club. Pretty clear message in this song title. Nothing more to add here, either.
Discombobulate All Night Long
Lionel Richie has great hair and a great voice and is great at everything. Especially doing stuff all night long. All night long.
Should I Stay or Should I Discombobulate
The Clash was a good old post-punk band that had big hit singles—this was the biggest of the lot in the ‘80s. They decided to stay.
Come On Discombobulation
Yes, Dexy’s Midnight Runners knew a thing or two about smash hit singles. This one features a banjo. Hell yeah!
What’s Discombobulation Got To Do With It?
Tina Turner here singing about the obvious things in life. And we agree with her entirely. What the hell has it got to do with it? Whatever “it” is. Cheese? Space travel? Wasps?
I Think We’re Discombobulating Now
How does one know when one is going through this issue? Listen to this smash hit by Tiffany. Then you’ll know. End of.
Discombobulation After Discombobulation
So, Cyndi Lauper may not be able to write the catchiest of song titles. But the song was a crowd-pleaser all the same.
Girls Just Want To Discombobulate
Another Cyndi Lauper hit—from 1983. Her high-pitched singing aside, this is a powerful message about girls just wanting to disconcert or confuse (someone). Those crazy human females!
Total Discombobulation of the Heart
This weepy little number from Bonnie Tyler sure gets us every single time.
I Just Called To Say I Discombobulated
Ah yes, thanks for that Stevie Wonder. That’s sweet of you, but keep it to yourself next time. No need to turn it into a hit international single. Somethings are just best kept private.
Stand and Discombobulate
Do you remember Adam and the Ants? We remember Adam and the Ants. Your money or your life?
Discombobulating For You
This nauseating mess from Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan still makes us want to vomit.
Wake Me Up Before You Discombobulate-Discombobulate
What could have been a catchy little number for Wham! Ended up as the above. Despite the record company’s best efforts, George Michael steadfastly refused to adopt anything more catchy. Oh well.
Don’t Discombobulate So Close To Me
The Police was a band. Sting isn’t a bumble bee. And he doesn’t like people doing stuff close to him. Moody git.
