I used to think that all music was made by this one big guy, (who in my mind looked something like Danny Devito) who wore a blue and orange vertical-striped polo shirt. He sang every song, and did the instruments for every song. I have no idea where that thought originally came from.

Michael Jackson- Billie Jean.

"Billie Jean's not my love, ah,
She's just a girl and I'm on the run.
The jail is not my son.
She says I'm done.
But the jail is not my son."

I was quite grown up when Irish punk group Stiff Little Finger had a tune (forgot the name) which ends with the singer repeatedly singing “scream whenever you hear this tone”. To me it sounded like “scream banana you’re in his toe”.

"Come On Eileen, I swear I'll eat beets!
At this moment, I'll eat anything!
You want the dress? Eileen, please tell me yes!
You are thirty, Come On Eileen!"

I first heard this song in 2013 and thought it was what he was saying. I still hear these words when I hear this song. :D

The Limbo Rock - real lyrics:
"Jack be limbo, Jack be quick
Jack go under limbo stick"

But I thought it was:
"Check your limbo techniquique
Check your under limbo seat"

I misheard the "church on time" lyric in David Bowie's "Modern Love" as "ching chong chang" and wondered how such a racist song was allowed to be played on the radio!

I used to believe that both Madonna and Michael Jackson were dead when I was a kid in the early 90s. I thought that every concert and video I saw of them on TV were old and that you could only get that influential after death (for me they were in the same category as Elvis).

When I was little, when the band "Linkin Park" emerged, I thought that the radio said that they were playing a song from 'years and years ago'. Being a kid who only liked new songs, I would switch over whenever they'd play. When I heard 'It is love' on the radio regularly though, I was surprised because I thought it was an old song.
