Lost In Translation: R Kelly!

November 7, 2009

R Kelly: “You Remind Me of Something” (1995)

You remind me of something
I just can’t think of what it is

It’s something about your love that’s got me going crazy
Baby, you know I want you real bad
And girl I really like your freaky style
How can I be down with you?
So get a little closer to my ride
I wanna get to know you lady
And hip me up on how to get inside you
Listen, pretty baby

You remind me of my jeep, I wanna ride it
Something like my sound, I wanna pump it
Girl you look just like my cars, I wanna wax it
And something like my bank account
I wanna spend it, baby…

Man. I’m so inspired. I think “You Remind Me…” is the inspiration I’ve been looking for. R Kelly is my muse, and if I may be so bold, I will do everything in my power to harness the awesomeness that is this song and bring it to the Linkin Park record. Legendary. Imagine: Phoenix can say, “Girl, your booty is like my bass / I wanna slap it.”




  1. Minor_x_Sunrise on December 3, 2009 at 1:50 am

    LOL. Legend. You need to record a demo of you singing that.

  2. twilight_LP on November 19, 2009 at 12:41 am

    HAHAHAHA…that would be fucking awesome. Put it on the album, I wanna hear it! Maybe a hidden track or something?

  3. Jo_o8 on November 18, 2009 at 3:33 am

    I seriously hope you are joking (off course you are) when you say you are going to bring the awesomeness of this song to the linkin Park record. By the way isn’t this called ‘Lyrics in print.’

  4. axrinekey on November 13, 2009 at 12:04 am


    I was going to say that the last paragraph was really funny πŸ˜„
    But after reading what you wrote there “girl, your booty…”
    I just can’t stop laughing now! πŸ˜„

  5. nemi on November 12, 2009 at 9:38 am

    haha, i would love phoenix to say that in a song xD a new mmm…cookies record, maybe?? hehe πŸ™‚

  8. Lori2blue on November 10, 2009 at 4:10 pm

    Though R. Kell is obviously the king of meaningful lyrics, I suggest these ones also.. O yeah we’ve all know it..

    Akon -Sexy bitch
    She’s nothing like the girl/ You’ve seen before/ Nothing you can compare/ To your neighborhood hoe/ I’m tryna find the words to describe this girl/ Without being disrespectful/

    The way that booty moving/ I can’t take no more/Have to stop what I’m doing/ So I can put my clothes/
    I’m tryna find the words to describe this girl/ Without being disrespectful (and these are the words he does find)
    /Damn girl../ Damn, you’re a sexy bitch /A sexy bitch/…

    Just beautiful, isn’t it? πŸ˜›

  9. Linkinlady06 on November 10, 2009 at 4:06 pm

  16. alyeska39 on November 8, 2009 at 3:21 pm


  17. Charlotte_Jay on November 8, 2009 at 11:33 am

    I laughed so hard when I read “Girl, your booty is like my bass, I wanna slap it”! you’re hilarious Mike! I can just imagine Phoenix saying that! haha! thanks for the laugh, take care.


  18. xomusicmaniac94 on November 8, 2009 at 11:21 am

    Thank you so much for this post; it just made my day! It’s been pretty crappy thus far, so to read this piece of idiocy and laugh was much appreciated. Just, wow…he obviously used up all of his brain energy to write this masterpiece. I mean, to see how his thoughts progress throughout the song! In the beginning, he can not “think of what it is” that this woman reminds him of. Then, after he goes on to so eloquently describe his love for her, he manages to come up with some creative similes: describing the love of his life as a jeep, cars, a bank account. How romantic. HA.

  19. ArielCahen on November 8, 2009 at 11:07 am

    ey, mike. off topic question: i just received my glxs book through the mail today, and i noticed there is no picture of the painting called “Goodbye” at the end of it. why was this one left out?

  20. RatherRed on November 8, 2009 at 9:58 am

    Don’t forget, Mike… Jay did a couple of mash-up albums with this fool right before Collision Course… but I guess it’s all in good fun πŸ™‚ I haven’t seen a bad lyric out of you guys since the breakdown of “One Step Closer”, but you guys have also made it known how you feel about that song πŸ˜‰

  21. Morinoajin on November 8, 2009 at 9:07 am

    Ayeeeee…. just imagined Phoenix say that πŸ˜„ …….**falls off chair πŸ˜„
    Haha if Phoenix would sing that.. it’ll be priceless! Put that song on the LPU 9 album or sth πŸ˜„

    R Kelly’s great.

  22. PankakeMunky on November 8, 2009 at 7:59 am

    and to think people like r kelly make way too much dough for writing songs that compare women to personal belongings. the next big way to write songs will be to say, “i love you babe you’re so sexy, i’m glad you’re like an app on itunes where you’re just useful in every way possible.”

  23. _Bianca_ on November 8, 2009 at 7:47 am

    The little girl in me is sad now. I looked the song up on youtube because I kind of suspected you were just fucking with us, those lyrics are just that bad, and I realized that I actually know that song and loved it when it came out… in 1995 I was 8 and didn’t speak a word of English…
    That memory shall be ruined forever xD

  24. BloodSphinX on November 8, 2009 at 5:43 am

    Fuckin awesome
    Imagin on the radio YOU REMIND ME OF SOMETHING BY LINKIN PARK Just think of a good line were MR Bennington can scream to and i ll buy it Oh to MS and the others I hope u don’t mind but I errrr kinda said that u might be mass murders (not that its true to all the idiots out there ) when ur not makin music in a blog on my LP page so yeah i hope u don t mind aahhhhh thanks for that music anyway

  25. zahra on November 8, 2009 at 4:44 am

    HAHA!!!! LOL!!!!!! OMG THAT WAS HILARIUS!Imagine….OMG!!!////HAHA!!!


  26. Flaming_Skull on November 8, 2009 at 2:26 am

    There’ll be no artshow, no work, no tour, nothing will be released especially the new album.

    As far as I’ve bee told from someone.

    What a confused post by the way ??? Or I’ve been confusing myself LOL

    What do you think about this guy having a baby? I see somewhere and he should really have and hope it’s true for how long that he have been married by another God, I mean if you guys consider him as a god. I wonder how HOT he and she was when they were in the bed. kiki

    What do you think? other than my SUCK in your language.

    What do you think?

  27. Ezza on November 8, 2009 at 1:21 am

    cringe it just doesnt seem like something phi would say :P…. and now for some reason i have the words to that sexy chick song stuck in my head http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N9hazmsUxrM just the words ” damn who’s a sexy chick” ….it’d be ok if i was in a nightclub off my face but its rather annoying other wise ….imagine phi sayin those words instead…shudders again… sometimes ur humour is very twisted πŸ˜„ love it

  28. dutchsoldier on November 8, 2009 at 12:59 am

    If you do that Mr. Shinoda I won’t spend my bank account on your freaky record… lol

    Counting down the time till the new track on LPU..better hasn’t got any jeeps on it either or I’ll shove shove it up someone elses ‘CD-player’.

    BTW I can only speak for myself but I’m really eager to read more and more ( yes, it will never be enough for another ungratefull fan of yours, to read something new about the new record ). Anyway, please make it as awesome as all the rest.. can’t wait anymore πŸ™‚

    Best of luck!!!

  29. Tom_SynNergy on November 8, 2009 at 12:51 am

    Oh man! How can he actually write about something like that: “You look like my jeep???” Not cool guys! And this really got me laughing loud: “Phoenix can say, “Girl, your booty is like my bass / I wanna slap it.” Thanks for the post!

  30. DemonNoir99 on November 7, 2009 at 11:36 pm

    ” It’s something about your love that’s got me going crazy ” .. ( sigh )

    Yes , Mr Kelly .. We totally understand about Your feeling , but We Want that Booty too .. so ??!! .. ( Is anyone here who has a Pain Killer Btw ?? I need that damn Pills … Right Now !! ) LOL ..

  32. Angi220 on November 7, 2009 at 11:03 pm

    Oh, Mike….I really wanna hear you sing like that…although it’s hard for me to imagine…………..But I can see chezy sing that way~~haha

  33. SkullzTatz on November 7, 2009 at 10:02 pm

  34. ShimizuAiko on November 7, 2009 at 9:59 pm

    No Mistake , Janet Jackson’s That’s The Way Love Goes , definitely comparable with these song ( Ok , Now I can feel the hairs on My neck stand up ,… LOL ) !!

    @Girlaloud : I bet someone would be so Panicked after knowing that β€˜ The BeardFear Song and Janet Jackson’s BeardSweat Song β€˜ was in the public area Right ? LOL , ( I hope the Girls will record β€˜ That ‘ You Freaking Me Out ‘ Face β€˜ ..LOL , ( I’m sure it would look very funny !! ) Geezz , I can’t wait for β€˜ Hot Spot News β€˜ Tomorrow .. LOL !! .. ( Yes , we’re so dead , ;D , Hahaha ) ..

  37. girlaloud on November 7, 2009 at 7:38 pm

    Edit : Oh , I Forgot Something .. Mike Did you ever heard The Cardigans’s My Favorite Game ??? i think you must listening that song , it is a .. Cool song ever , seriously πŸ˜‰ and I totally recommend to you ( we call that song with The BeardFear Song , LOL and the song was very popular in our community, LOL ! ) ,Well Who knew you would get more inspiration !

  42. jeffryLP on November 7, 2009 at 6:41 pm

    R.Kelly ?? … Seriously .. Now, you Scare the hell outta me , dude !! ..

    Get off Me !!

  43. ShadowerLiltani on November 7, 2009 at 6:24 pm

    The sad thing is that he compares a woman to a jeep. Not a sleek, sexy sports car. A jeep. He basically called a woman a box on wheels. I’m not sure why, but the lost in translation lyrics and photos are in my opinion, the funniest thing on this blog.

  44. BlackHawk on November 7, 2009 at 6:12 pm

    Oh , You’re so Cute Dude .. seriously !!

  45. aussieChazz on November 7, 2009 at 6:08 pm

    Why do I feel wanted to Bang my Damn head against the wall after hearing this silly song !! ( Grrrr !! ) , just keep your Goddamned mouth shut , R Kelly ! LOL

  46. LPHooligan on November 7, 2009 at 6:05 pm

    Let me Think !! .. someone has spent a thousand cans of beer a while ago hehehe !

  47. TheDarkPrince on November 7, 2009 at 6:01 pm

    Score !!!!

  48. boyzdontcry on November 7, 2009 at 5:58 pm

    β€œ You remind me of my jeep, I wanna ride it β€œ LOL … LOL

    @ Lil’ note to R Kelly : dude , You ever get punched in the face for talking too much ????

  49. RiotFaerie on November 7, 2009 at 5:14 pm

    ”Girl, your booty is like my bass / I wanna slap it” is probably one of the sexiest lines for a bassist. πŸ˜„

  50. Tyrena on November 7, 2009 at 5:04 pm

    Can i be Phoenix’s bass?

  51. MobzSean1 on November 7, 2009 at 4:59 pm

    ‘ It’s something about your love that’s got me going crazy ‘ ??? !!

    Dude , . sounds like you’re falling in love !.. am i right ???

  52. DaniShinoda on November 7, 2009 at 4:19 pm

    I see you must be SO inspired, man. It’s hilarious! The part “And hip me up on how to get inside you” is so funny! LOL!!!
    I could imagine the scene with Phoenix, OMG! Ha!!

    Regards from Brazil!

    PS.: I am just thinking Chester is going to be a little jealous… but it’s ok, you both are perve! Ha! just kidding πŸ˜‰

  55. Lvix on November 7, 2009 at 3:12 pm

    Maybe you can do something with it on a new “mmmcookies” cd? :p Message to all fans: Next week(starting monday) we need to give a lot of votes for Linkin Park on the “Fuse Best Of 2009!”

  56. Jessi12 on November 7, 2009 at 2:58 pm

  58. Jen1210 on November 7, 2009 at 2:10 pm

    LMAO! The funniest line in that song “Girl you look just like my cars, I wanna wax it.” – LOL!

  59. lucky_cat on November 7, 2009 at 2:09 pm

    LOL …how pathetic is that?! … “You taste just like a stale beer in the morning, I wanna pour it away.” …Ha, thanks! Now I feel better … πŸ™‚

  60. Madlen on November 7, 2009 at 2:00 pm

    Now you have officially promised that you’re going to bring that vibe to the album…and of course we’re expecting you to include the lyrics above:D On second thought please don’t do that:D
    “Girl your curves are like my keyboard,I wanna press them”
    that did not make sense…

  61. sabry_br on November 7, 2009 at 1:58 pm

    LoL that was soo… stupid! xD Chaz maybe could say: “Girl, I’m gonna make you scream…” [I know that wasn’t funny ok?! ¬¬’]

  62. kellz on November 7, 2009 at 1:48 pm

    “Shorty got me feenin’ / She like Minutes to Midnight”

  63. KATHYxx on November 7, 2009 at 1:46 pm

    Comparing the ladies to a car, R Kelly has some unbeatable women skills there LOL

  64. MonaSS99 on November 7, 2009 at 1:28 pm


  65. the_fighter on November 7, 2009 at 12:15 pm

    hi mike!
    i have another song for you on lost in translation!
    the song is “fuck you” by lilly allen:
    Look inside,
    Look inside your tiny mind
    Now look a bit harder
    Cause we’re so uninspired,
    so sick and tired of all the
    hatred you harbor

    So you say
    It’s not okay to be gay
    Well I think you’re just evil
    You’re just some racist who
    can’t tie my laces
    Your point of view is medieval

    it’s not the whole song, just this is funny..!
    hope you like it πŸ™‚

    love you and all lp! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
    come to Israel!

  66. rockermeg on November 7, 2009 at 12:11 pm

    Or you or Brad could say “Girl, you’re like my amp / I just need to turn you on”

  67. cuz on November 7, 2009 at 12:10 pm

    Oh god, “You remind me of my jeep”… Poor Phi ;D But seriously, it’d be awesome to hear his voice on the record!

  68. kanurachel on November 7, 2009 at 12:09 pm

    j’adore r.kelly
    he makes me so laugh

  69. LPAssociationDerek on November 7, 2009 at 11:28 am

    Hilarious. Speaking of…please make Phoenix’s bass lines actually audible in the next Linkin Park record lol. And have him do some slap bass or fills like he did in the Snax. Thank you..that is all! πŸ˜›

  70. Shinoda77 on November 7, 2009 at 11:09 am

  71. Joanna on November 7, 2009 at 11:06 am

  72. xXLEOXx on November 7, 2009 at 11:03 am

    HA! I’m looking forward to the song, which result from this inspiration!! That’s the real skill of song writing! πŸ˜€ Thanks for sharing.. I was happy to see a new episode of LOST IN TRANSLATION.. but the true champion of LIT is germany with our “Super Dickmann’s” and “Chesterella” ;D Regards from Germany!! Have a nice day, Mike! Leo

  73. natalia_spain on November 7, 2009 at 10:59 am

    Mike, YOU TRAUMATIZED ME FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                                                                                                                                                                                                             PD: (my pd are similar to the pd from evabennoda) Congrats for the adwad, and happy brithday to Anna ^^

    PD: ninguem, i don’t know if Mikey was drunken or doping, but i think this type of comments are normal from Mike…

  74. soyuneik on November 7, 2009 at 10:59 am

    Mmm So it’s like….“Dude, you look just like my Cpu with thermal compound smeared all over it?” Eh, I can dig it.
    That’s kinda hot actually. ::Sly Looks all around:: But who do think would do that?

  75. ninguem on November 7, 2009 at 10:40 am

    mike you was drunken or dopy to write this post?

  76. Vixenla on November 7, 2009 at 10:38 am

  80. keineAhnung on November 7, 2009 at 10:24 am

    When I just read those lyrics I was ROFLMAO…and I definitely know what they remind ME of – dave chappelle’s version of some r kelly song ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3-vpdETMjb8 )…r kelly seems to be a muse to a lot of people…lol

    btw…congrats on winning that ema

  81. p_lane on November 7, 2009 at 10:21 am

    YES! I will pay big bucks to hear Phoenix say, “Girl, your booty is like my bass. I wanna slap it.”

    Also, will golden showers be involved or no? Sorry, but when it comes to Kels, I can help but to incorporate that into a conversation. . .. it’s like a horrible reflex.

  82. Anstice on November 7, 2009 at 10:19 am

    Hahaha! You know what’s sad is that I could see Chester doing something like that, not so much Phoenix.

    Oh, and LPFMFAN:: Twitterfeed really is going horribly slow lately. Caught in the Act (http://www.caughtintheact.co.nr) has been having to wait roughly 2 to 2 1/2 hours for a post to come up on Twitter. And sometimes, if I make multiple posts in a short amount of time, a few of them never show up at all. I hope it’s just a temporary glitch and not permanent because I’m sick of going through and posting our posts by hand every time they don’t show up. I don’t particularly have time to keep doing that, haha.

  83. PrincessbyDawn on November 7, 2009 at 10:18 am

    hahaha Thx for sharing πŸ™‚

  84. hit_n_run_me on November 7, 2009 at 10:15 am

    LOL; would be even better as another ‘real talk’ parody with you and Chester.

  85. Shinodabestfriend on November 7, 2009 at 10:14 am

    NERD! u_u
    oh this reminds me of chester.. LOL

  86. miKer0cks on November 7, 2009 at 10:08 am

    Hahahahahahaha! LOL Mike! You made my day πŸ™‚ Thx for sharing…I missed the “Lost in Translation” posts! Have a good day πŸ™‚

    PS. When you have the time, take a look at my DA account. I just finished my new painting series entitled “The Season Skull”, inspired by your “4 Seasons” πŸ™‚ They’re nothing special but I hope you’ll like them…http://evooba.deviantart.com/ (they’re the first 5 paintings in my gallery)

    EDIT: Happy B-day to Anna πŸ™‚ Wish her the best πŸ™‚

  87. liope on November 7, 2009 at 10:06 am

    LOL!!! xD That’s awesome! And sure i want to listen a song like that at the new LP album!! πŸ˜›

    And now it’s time for the congrats and wishes.1. Congratulation for the Best World Stage Performance on EMA!! 2. Happy Birthday to Mrs Anna ^^ and 3. I suppose you don’t celebrate name days but tomorrow ( Nov. 8) it’s your name day!!! πŸ˜€ So Happy name day for tomorrow!! ( don’t lose the chance to get a present! πŸ˜‰

    OMG, audio, Mike. GET AUDIO…somehow make him say it again. xD but imagining it, lmao. hilarious.

    I remember that song, I liked it…but I think it was the remix I liked. πŸ˜›

    EDIT: this is actually random, but twitterfeed is going SO slow, not just for you but for me too, I used it but now I changed to something else, perhaps you’ll like it! It’s called HootSuite, it’s awesome, but it can easily work just like TwitterFeed did, just put your RSS URL and it works like a charm. But, once you click on it a little toolbar thing gets on the top of the screen, you might not like that, but I dunno. Check it out. πŸ˜›

    Inspiration is hard to find these days but maybe, i don’t know just maybe, look for it elsewhere….????!!! Of course who am i to tell, i am sure that Phoenix will be thrilled by these admittedly shivering lyrics.
