Nicole Scherzinger’s new single ”Puakenikeni” — a paean to the Hawaiian flower…and her nether regions — is the latest pop tongue twister. Here, match famously unpronounceable tracks to their artists.
1 The Mars Volta
3 PJ Harvey
4 Led Zeppelin
6 Ashley Tisdale
Named after an old Welsh cottage where the singer stayed as a child and later recorded with the band.
B) ”INERTIATIC ESP”
”ESP” supposedly means ”Ectopic Shapeshifting Penance-propulsion.” (The group’s also fond of trippy titles like ”Take the Veil Cerpin Taxt.”)
Stands for ”Voyage to the Land of the Freeze-Dried Godzilla Farts.” Obviously.
Refers to carvings of women flaunting their private parts, found on castles and churches in the U.K.
A faux show tune named for Hawaii’s state fish. (See, Nicole, you can honor your native state without invoking your naughty bits.)
An acronym for ”She Walks Like a Bearded Rainbow.” Said to compare a woman’s beauty to a variety of flower known as the Bearded Iris. Acid, anyone?
