Happy Easter

question of the day ? March 23

Remember the funny video Tunesmith(I think) put up called Misheard Lyrics guy?
What lines or words of what songs did you think were one thing and turned out to be another?

One of mine was in the song: Down on the Corner by Creedence
When they sang "out in the street" I thought it said Cloudy in the street.

And this one I have no excuse for since the words I heard wrong are also in the title. : Forever in Bluejeans by N. Diamond
I thought the line was reverend bluejeans.

when i was a kid i consistently misheard the lyrics to bob seger's "trying to live my life without you."

the lyrics are:
trying to live my life without you, babe,
is the hardest thing i'll ever do


but what i heard was:
trying to live my life without chewie
is the hardest thing i'll ever do


and i decided the song was about han solo's friendship with chewbacca.

because they're best friends.

^HAHAAHA. That one's great.

I can't think of any of my own, though I know there've been lots...but my favorite is from a little boy I babysat a long time ago. He was 3 or so and heard that horrible song by Glenn Frey, "The Heat is On", as "The Feet is Uncle." No amount of reasoning would dissuade him.

When the wee mouse was indeed wee we were driving somewhere with her in her wee car seat in the back and listening to The Beatles -- it is not unusual for musically-oriented small children to be crazy about The Beatles. All You Need Is Love was playing as we pulled up to the mailbox and she suddenly asked, "Mummy why do they keep going, blah, blah, blah in a song about love?" Reasonable question:

Blah blah blah
Blah blah blah
Blah blah blah
Blah blah blah
All you need is love!

nice ^

I always wondered why Creedence Clearwater was so worried about a baboon on the right (as opposed to the left?)

don't go round tonight
well it's bound to take your life
there's a baboon on the right


ETA: according to google, I wasn't the only one.

damn CCR

when i saw "Drugstore Cowboy" for the first time, I really enjoyed the ending, especially the soundtrack (it ends with Desmond Dekker's Israelites).

I kept singing it to myself after that:


"Wake up in the morning, fixing the breakfast
So that every mouth can be fed
Born the Israelites, yeah"


which is a tad different from the the original lyrics:

"Get up in the morning, slaving for bread, sir,
so that every mouth can be fed.
Poor me, the Israelite. Aah."

my sister always had a problem with depeche mode's "enjoy the silence."

the real lyrics:
pleasure remains
so does the pain


she heard:
pleasure remains
soldiers burping

When I was a kid I often wondered why does Freddie Mercury suddenly switch into Hungarian when singing Life Is Life.

Life (nanananana)
Life is life (nanananana)
Labadab dab dab life(nanananana)
Liiiiiiiife (nanananana)

Labadab dab dab totally sounds like the Hungarian Levelet kaptam which means I got a letter.

Later, when I started to learn English, I was so disappointed to learn he wasn't saying anything at all. And what's more, he didn't even get a letter...

Well, which one do you mean? The couple in their late fifties who've gone golfing in Myrtle Beach and left me to watch their house and pick up their mail? The Flanders (not their real name, but close enough to their real life)? Or the well-known young hockey player who was rendered quadriplegic when checked from behind in a Junior A game? Or the guy with the Labradoodle whose daughter works for a dentist in a Rocky Mountain resort town? They're mostly likeable sorts. Not the people with the Escalade and the stock car racer, though. Not them.

our neighbor is the bouncing bishop:

his name is Werner, and he's about 120 years old. yes, he is a bishop.


his wife is Liselotte, and she's about 110. she wears a brown wig, and she gives me pears in the fall.
