Misheard Song Lyrics

Post by Steo »

We've all been there, where you like a song, yet you've been hearing/singing the wrong lyrics for a long time, only to read the lyrics one day and be like wtf!?

Basically, just post the name of the song, what the line was supposed to be, and what you thought it was saying.

___

I'll start with Green Day - American Idiot.

I used to always think the line was:

"Can you hear the sound of the stereo"

Where it turned out he's actually saying:

"Can you hear the sound of hysteria". :lol:

Kentucky Rain by Elvis will always sound like “the fucking rain” to some people. xD

Oh shoot, this could've been fun! Well, I'll post here anyway, since one of the goals of Record Day is to shuffle the discussion topics for the rest of the year too!

I used to think that in American Pie, the good old boys were drinking "whiskey and wine" rather than "whiskey and rye". :P I've also read a theory that it's actually "in Rye", referring to a location in New York State.

I can think of a good few Elton John songs where I spent the whole time mishearing lyrics. Like with Sacrifice for example, I’d hear the line “cold, cold heart” as “coco pops”.

Then with Goodbye Yellow Brick Road I misheard “going back to my plough” as “going back to my cloud”, and “hunting the horny back toad” as “right at the heart of my toe”. I’m weird like that.

To be fair, I don't think I've ever caught any of the lyrics of Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, apart from the title itself! :P

Many people believe when listening to Eiffel 65's song "I'm Blue (Da Ba Dee)", they mishearded the phrase "I'm blue da ba dee da ba daa" as "I'm blue, if I was green I would die".

I actually heard it saying the previous one, which it's correct.

Yeah that song has been known for having misheard lyrics, I've heard many rumours about it, even though it literally says da ba dee in the title.

Bumped.

The Buggles - Video Killed The Radio Star

Whenever I heard "Video Killed The Radio Star", I kept thinking they were saying "Video Killed The Radio Store".

Still to this day, I think they do. Like when I sing the lyrics, I still say "Store" even though I know it is "Star".

Their accent they sing the song in really does sound like "store" to be honest.

I was today years old when I found out what the actual lyrics to the hit 90s dance song Push the Feeling On by the Nightcrawlers are and it blew my mind that it was just "their lives again their lives pull us through" over and over.
