    I didn't mis-hear it...but always thought Elton John sounded like he had a mouth full of mush when he sang "hunting the horny back toad" in Yellow Brick Road"...so I wasn't surprised when my ex thought the words were "hunting and hauling back toads" LOL

    Sade singing 'Smooth Operator' sung it so it sounded like "Who's got the grater?"

    I used to have a friend who thought "Afternoon Delight" was actually "Afro socks ignite!"

    Well this isn't a song, but me and my friend were debating about that super intense scene in Spider Man 1 near the end. The Green Goblin has just revealed his identity and Peter Parker is about to become victim to his glider spikes as Green Goblin positions them. Right before he gives the signal, he says something. I swore that I heard him say "God speaks, Spider Man," which I thought was a pretty cool thing to say right before what he thinks will be Spider Man's death. My friend said it was "God speed, Spider Man," and sure enough after several pause/plays we determined that's what he said.

    Younger, whenever I heard 2LiveCrew, Do The Damn Thing, when they sing "Whatcha doin in the back"....it always sounded like "Would you do it in the butt," to me. I just recently heard that song and they don't say that. I used to cover my ears when it came on. icon_razz.gif

    I'm not sure most would remember or know this one, but when this song by Madonna came out, it was a national phenom that everyone was singing "Wet Safari" when in fact, the lyics are "Where's the party" or the David Bowie song that spawn a dance call the Safety Dance which was named after misinterpreted lyrics for a song called "It's Safe To Dance".

    When I was about 9 or 10, I sang that as "School of a winner!"

    Who can forget The Spinners who sang the song "I'll be there" (whenever you call me, I'll be there, whenever you need me, I'l be there...used in some commercials nowadays) which included the line "now it's time for me to bow out gracefully"......I at first thought it sounded like they were saying 'bow-wow gracefully" and used to snicker to myself imagining how one would bow-wow gracefully...Caslon, any help? Oh, wait...you do cats. Never mind icon_cool.gif

    As a little kid, I played the Doors' album (yes, actual albums then!) called "Waiting for the sun" and on it was the song "Hello, I love you" which went:

    Hello, I love you
    Won't you tell me your name?
    Hello, I love you
    Let me jump in your game
    Hello, I love you
    Won't you tell me your name?
    Hello, I love you
    Let me jump in your game

    She's walking down the street
    Blind to every eye she meets
    Do you think you'll be the guy
    To make the queen of angels sigh?


    Anyway - there's more - but what I'm remembering is the arguments with friends that claimed Jim Morrison was saying "Hellok" not "Hello" and a couple of guys swore to the death the word was "hellok" which made no sense at all!icon_lol.gif

    I've always known it was WRONG, but in the song "Walk Away" by Kelly Clarkson she sings:

    "I know, you know, I know, so what's the point in being slow?"

    But I always sing it:

    "I know, you know, I know I like French Toast".

    I've always enjoyed Elton John's:
    She's got electric boobs
    Her mom has two
    You know I read it in a magazine

    Benny and the Jets

    On a slighty different subject....


    how many people know the words to "The Girl From Ipanema"?icon_wink.gif

    It was used in the elevator scene in "Blues Brothers" and also used in "Vegas Vacation" with Chevy Chase.
    (Yes there are words to it)
    No fair looking on youtube or google!

    Madonna's song Dress You Up In My Love is supposed to be 'Gonna dress you up in my love. All over, all over.' but I used to think it was 'Gonna dress you up in nylon. All over, all over'

    The song Blinded by the Light there is a line that is 'Blinded by the light, revved up like a deuce, another runner in the night' but I always hear ' Blinded by the light, revved up like a douche, another runner in the night' - At least it makes the song tolerable to listen too.

    My favorite example.... though I always thought he was saying "wrapped up like a douche." Boy, I'd really feel stupid if I were the only one. The odd thing is that in the original by The Boss, the lyrics are "cut loose like a deuce." What the hell happened there?

    Misheard Lyrics:
    'N she was blinded by the light
    Warped up like a douche, oh the runner in the night.
    Original Lyrics:
    And she was blinded by the light
    Revved up like a deuce, another runner in the night.


    and before anyone asks...

    Misheard Lyric
    And little early birdy gave my anus curl a whirly
    and asked me if I needed a ride.
    Original Lyric
    And little Early-Pearly came by in his whirly-gurly
    and asked me if I needed a ride



    what's a 'whirly-gurly'?? beats the hell out of me...ask Bruce Springsteen!icon_wink.gif

    I've always really hated Creed, and even more so, their video for "My Sacrifice." Any time I cook rice, I just have to hold the bag up in one hand, stare at it longingly, and sing in my best Scott Stapp voice "My sack of rice!!" and burst out into air guitar, playing so heavily 'creed-like' that the neck breaks in half.

    Damn that video sucked.
