Untitled[edit]

Surely someone out there has more info on this woman than is available in this article. I realize she's young, but there has to be more to her story than is present in that pithy paragraph.

dead links[edit]

I took out two links. One added recently still says "coming soon". It can be added when it's working. Another was not accessible. Given these are just fan sites, with little original content, there's no point in having them, unless they are actually operating. --rob 04:12, 27 July 2005 (UTC)

Volio[edit]

I put this back, without rewording it. it should be cleaned up, hopefully by somebody more familiar. BTW, there was an AFD on Volio. It was kept, but merged here. Not all the wording should be preserved, but its worth a little mention at least. --Rob 06:08, 2 April 2006 (UTC)

Removed[edit]

Her first single, "Billy S.", was the center of attention when many teenagers posted the lyrics online as "Meet Juliet or my Volio" as opposed to "Meet Juliet or Malvolio". The word Volio gained use among many of her fans as an example of a mondegreen (a misheard and misinterpreted song lyric). [citation needed]
The song's title is a reference to William Shakespeare. Within the song, Sweetnam uses Shakespeare as a symbol for institutional education and the subsequent constrictive authority that is attached with it. With this in mind, the song demolishes this symbol, in a lyrical fit of teenage angst and rebellion. The lines referencing this are located within the chorus:
"I don't need to read Billy Shakespeare, meet Juliet or Malvolio.
Feel for once what it's like to rebel now. I want to break out. Let's go!"
The characters Juliet (from Romeo and Juliet) and Malvolio (from Twelfth Night) were taken from plays by Shakespeare. However, many young Sweetnam fans, having never read those plays, were unaware of character names, and subsequently many incorrect versions of the lyrics of "Billy S." were posted on online lyrics websites. The most common mistake was that of the line "Meet Juliet or my Volio" instead of "Meet Juliet or Malvolio".
This common mistake soon spread across the internet on various lyric-based websites, despite Volio not being a word or a phrase. As a result, some internet users have adopted this word as their own, giving Volio its official definition as "a polio-infected Swedish automobile". This definition views the word Volio as a hybrid combining the disease polio and the Swedish Volvo, a manufacturer of cars.
It is now used by some in internet slang, used to refer to any lyrical typo or misunderstanding.

I've moved the above here until someone can verify this stuff. Even then, I don't think it's particularly encyclopedic, and certainly shouldn't take up three/fourths of the article as it did. I personally thinks it's some kind of joke/hoax. But either way, if someone finds a source for this stuff, please add the above back into the article. 207.216.170.38 09:53, 14 May 2006 (UTC)
