Meanings of "drop-dead gorgeous!"
"drop dead gorgeous" means so extremely beautiful that seeing her (or whomever is being described) would cause you to drop dead.
There are two different bands with the name "Drop Dead Gorgeous".
First there is Michelle Steynberg and "Drop Dead Gorgeous" of South Africa,
And then there is "Drop Dead, Gorgeous", the American post-hardcore band from Denver, Colorado.
The difference, in English, is that WITHOUT the comma, "drop dead" is an ADVERB, modifying gorgeous - meaning EXTREMELY gorgeous - (gorgeous enough to make you drop dead from seeing her!), and the entire band name is simply an adjectival phrase.
WITH the comma, it is a complete sentence: Specifically, it is a COMMAND to someone - whom you're addressing by the moniker of "Gorgeous", - and whom you're telling (commanding) to: "Drop dead!"
Apparently, the American post-hardcore band from Denver, Colorado DOES spell their name with a comma, (this being a clever play on words on their part),
whereas Michelle Steynberg's South African band does NOT use a comma! (thus retaining the original meaning of this expression or idiom!)
Сногсшибательно красивый, убийственно красивый
"drop-dead gorgeous!" in lyrics
Delicate melancholy blows over us
You look drop dead gorgeous[fn]The literal translation would describe being brought to one's knees, but since that would have a different meaning in English, I've substituted an expression with a similar meaning.[/fn]
You can move on at any time
(K) Did he ever said sorry to you?
(L) For not putting away his underpants
(K) And did he say you were drop dead gorgeous?
(L) Does it count if it was the alcohol speaking?
Out of duct tape so when he prayin', I ignore the nigga
All I gotta say is sayonara, nigga
Drop dead gorgeous but the bitch ain't dyin' for a nigga
Where the real queens at? Shout out Capone and Noreaga
I have a drop dead gorgeous godmother
Together we drink like swines[fn]Couldn't find anything that could match the Russian coarseness here[/fn] every day
She has loads of booze at home.
When I get bored, I go to my godmother.
We arrange to go out for a drink at a bar
Shes already there when I arrive and she looks the part
Even more stunning than I remember, fuck it, drop dead gorgeous
Her ass is tight and her breasts are bloody enormous
