Rhymes with Orange

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by agreatheight, Mar 19, 2006.


  1. Every city I have ever lived in has had a band named "Rhymes with Orange," which is supposed to be ironic because nothing rhymes with orange, right?

    Doesn't LOZENGE rhyme with ORANGE?

    No. The irony here lies not in the name though but in the fact that each of these bands think they are being original.

    Only if you're pronouncing "lozenge" completely incorrectly. It rhymes with orange about as much as "goat" does.
     
  5. OK, so now I had to look it up...

    From rhymer.com

    "One- and two-syllable End Rhymes of orange:

    challenge, expunge, lozenge, lunge, orange, plunge, scavenge, sponge"

    HA!
     
  6. You brought this on yourself, Kserg.:D

    I never meant 2 cause u any sorrow
    I never meant 2 cause u any pain
    I only wanted 2 one time see u laughing
    I only wanted 2 see u laughing in the purple rain

    Purple rain Purple rain
    Purple rain Purple rain
    Purple rain Purple rain

    I only wanted 2 see u bathing in the purple rain

    I never wanted 2 be your weekend lover
    I only wanted 2 be some kind of friend
    Baby I could never steal u from another
    It's such a shame our friendship had 2 end

    Purple rain Purple rain
    Purple rain Purple rain
    Purple rain Purple rain

    I only wanted 2 see u underneath the purple rain

    Honey I know, I know, I know times are changing
    It's time we all reach out 4 something new
    That means u 2
    U say u want a leader
    But u can't seem 2 make up your mind
    I think u better close it
    And let me guide u 2 the purple rain

    Purple rain Purple rain
    Purple rain Purple rain

    If you know what I'm singing about up here
    C'mon raise your hand

    Purple rain Purple rain

    I only want 2 see u, only want 2 see u
    In the purple rain

    And no, there IS no rhyme for orange. That's why people think it's "deep" to name their band that.

    Rock on
    Eric
     
  7. I'm w/Eric on this one.

    rhymer.com could say it saw Jesus in a taco for all I care. Say those words out loud. None rhyme with orange.

    Month.
     
  16. Doesn't "door hinge" rhyme--clumsily, sure, but rhyme nonetheless--with "orange?"

    :D

    i did the same thing and said those words out loud, none of them rhyme with orange, at least not the way i say them

    isn't "month" another one of them words that don't have a rhyme?
