I used to believe that the ABBA song Waterloo was about the train line in London, before realising, due to the lyrics, that I was actually about the historical battle!

Misheard lyric in Sam Cooke's "Twisting The Night Away": it's actually supposed to be "dancing with the chicken slats". Chicken slats are the boards that make up the framework of a chicken coop. This would have been familiar to Cooke who was from rural Mississippi. Also it's crucial to the song: as in "Another Saturday Night" the protagonist didn't have a girl, thus he was dancing with "Chicken slats ".

I thought the song Smooth Operator by Sade sounded like Rudolph the Reindeer. Also thought Betty Davis Eyes by Kim Carne sounded like 'Better days to decide'.
