MMDE: Something Gotta Change

Current: Something Better Change

Here's a Mandela Effect which seems to be openly mocking the people experiencing it. UK punk group The Stranglers had a minor hit in 1977 with a single from their 'No More Heroes' album which some remember as 'Something Gotta Change', whereas in fact the title as seen everywhere today is 'Something Better Change'.

Considering the nature of Mandela Effects, to have one so directly referencing itself seems very suspicious.

Perhaps the confusion comes about from Josh Wilson's 2008 'Something's Gotta Change', but anyone listening to the two songs could hardly confuse them otherwise.

This is reinforced in the lyrics of the song: "Somethings happening and it's happening right now. Ain't got time to wait." That could be the defining phrase for every Mandela Effect!

Full lyrics

Don't you like the way I move when you see me?
Don't you like the things that I say?
Don't you like the way I seem to enjoy it?
When you shout things but I don't care
Something's happening and it's happening right now
You're too blind to see it
Something's happening and it's happening right now
Ain't got time to wait

I said something better change
I said something better change
I said something better change
I said something better change

Don't you like the way I dance, does it bug you?
Don't you like the cut of my clothes?
Don't you like the way I seem to enjoy it?
Stick my fingers right up your nose
Something's happening and it's happening right now
You're too blind to see it
Something's happening and it's happening right now
Ain't got time to wait

I said something better change
I said something better change
I said something better change
I said something better change, yeah, take it Hugh!

I said something better change
I said something better change
I said something better change
I said something better change, lovely

I said something better change
I said something better change
I said something better change
I said something better change

I said something better change
Change, change, change, change
Change, change, change, change
Change, change, change, change
Change
Change!
