Bard vs. Chatbot GPT
Who wore it better?
A few weeks ago, I shared a story I wrote about how the lyrics of many popular songs just don’t make sense. At the end of my story, I posted the one that I asked ChatGPT to write. It was a pretty good essay and came to the same conclusion I did. Since I learned today that I have access to Bard, Google’s answer to ChatGPT, I decided to give it the same assignment to see which is the better student. IMHO, it’s ChatGPT hands down. Besides, the words to Barbie Girl make perfect sense to me. And who doesn’t want to “shake it like a Polaroid”?
By the way, neither bot is a Hebrew scholar. I asked both to write a Haggadah with Hebrew prayers that would be engaging for participants. Bard essentially gave me an outline, so that was a bit of a fail. ChatGPT’s was a little more detailed but assigning the text to be read by different individuals wasn’t exactly engaging (if it was, we’d still all be using the Maxwell House Haggadah). We’ll stick with my cut-and-paste version.
My last test was a request of DALL-E, ChatGPT’s little sister, to create an illustration showing nonsensical song lyrics. You can see it above. Bard is still an only child so we’ll have to save that comparison for a few months (or weeks) down the road.
Have you ever listened to a popular song and thought to yourself, "What the heck are they talking about?" If so, you're not alone. Many popular songs have lyrics that are completely nonsensical. But why do we love them anyway?
There are a few reasons why we might enjoy songs with nonsensical lyrics. First, they can be catchy and fun to sing along to. Even if you don't understand what the singer is saying, you can still enjoy the melody and the rhythm of the song.
Second, nonsensical lyrics can be a form of escapism. When we're feeling stressed or overwhelmed, it can be nice to listen to a song that doesn't require us to think too hard. We can just relax and let the music wash over us.
Finally, nonsensical lyrics can be a way to connect with other people. When we sing along to a song with silly lyrics, we're sharing a moment of silliness with other people who enjoy the same song. It can be a fun way to bond with friends or family.
So next time you hear a song with nonsensical lyrics, don't be afraid to sing along. Even if you don't understand what the singer is saying, you can still enjoy the song. And who knows, you might just find yourself singing it in the shower later that day.
Here are a few examples of popular songs with nonsensical lyrics:
* "I'm Blue" by Eiffel 65: "I'm blue, da ba dee da ba daa, I'm blue, da ba dee da ba daa, da da da da da da da."
* "Barbie Girl" by Aqua: "I'm a Barbie girl, in a Barbie world, life in plastic, it's fantastic."
* "All Star" by Smash Mouth: "Somebody once told me the world is gonna roll me, I ain't the sharpest tool in the shed."
* "Hey Ya!" by Outkast: "Shake it like a Polaroid picture."
These are just a few examples of the many popular songs that have nonsensical lyrics. So next time you're listening to the radio, keep an ear out for these gems. And who knows, you might just find yourself singing along.
