I tend to ignore mistakes in songs. On the other hand, mistakes in
interviews and movie scripts are like hearing fingernails scrape against
a blackboard. I can't think of a good excuse for bad English in a
script, unless the writer is emphasizing the speaker's poor command of
English. I am more forgiving when it comes to interviews. The pressure
must be great, and mistakes are bound to happen, things that would not
be said in normal conversation.
Bobby and me are going on vacation....
Mom wants Bobby and I to go to the store...
These are two of the most common mistakes natives make. Why? When they are repeated in songs and films, non-natives seem to think, "If a native said it, it must be correct." Well, not always...
Just my opinion... The older I get, the meaner and more cantankerous I become. LOL
