I was listening to 'We Are The Pigs' by Suede the other week and I picked up on something I'd never noticed before - its the line "I'll stay at home in my house". Brett Anderson sings it with total passion and commitment and Bernard Butler something does twiddly with the guitar in the background, masking the fact that its a totally pointless tautology. If you stayed at home of course you were in your house!
Also 'Animals' by Talking Heads. "I know the animals ... are laughinh at us! They don't even know ... what a JOKE IS!"
