Key fact: we live near Lubbock, TX, it being the major town for shopping/etc. for us. My mom got me into Buddy Holly's music from some tapes we'd listen to in the car. I was about 8 or 10 or something, and they were talking about the Buddy Holly festival/center/statue on the news one day, and I asked my parents why they would have a festival for him HERE. They then informed me that Buddy Holly was from Lubbock, which I thought was nuts because up until then, I assumed that all famous people were from/lived in New York City (TV stars), Hollywood (movie stars), or Nashville (recording artists).

I used to get George Strait and Garth Brooks mixed up. I also though that Garth Brooks was a member of Brooks & Dunn on the side.

I used to get Def Leppard and Led Zeppelin confused because they both had purposly misspelled names.

As a kid I thought that the lyrics to "Bette Davis Eyes" (Kim Carnes) went, "She's got every day massage." Like the woman of the song got to get a massage every day.

Also, I swore that Blondie was a man... especially when listening to the song "Tide is High," even though in the song she says she's "not the kind of girl..." etc. I couldn't figure out why a man would be singing those lyrics because the voice OBVIOUSLY (to me) belonged to a man.

Because of that Simpsons episode, I thought Weird Al Yankovic was the original performer of the song "Jack and Diane."

When I was little, I used to believe CÚline Dion had died because my parents listened to her songs (and sometimes, they listened died poeple's songs).

I thought that every singer was only entitled to one song. If you ended up with "Volare" or "Ode to Billy Joe", that was it; every new song written had to have a new singer to sing it. (I also thought it was "Ode to Billy Joel". I thought Billy Joel had found an interesting loophole to the one song/one singer rule by becoming a song subject.)

When we were kids my Dad always sang along with all the songs on the radio. We mostly listened to 50s/60s music, and he knew every word & every doo-wop in every song. I was amazed. When I asked him how he knew so many songs, he said it was because he used to sing with the Platters. I was so proud! I told everyone! Noone ever disputed me, so my belief continued for a few years. Then, one day, I saw a commercial on TV for a compilation album & they showed a picture of the Platters. They were all black! (our family is white) I said, "hey, Dad. They're all black." He said, "Oh, I think I was sick the day they took that picture." I said, [gasp] "YOU weren't in the Platters!!" Up until that point, I really believed he was. We still laugh about it!

Up until a few weeks ago I believed that the reason that Michael Jackson looked so strange was because his plastic surgery had melted under a rather hot spotlight on stage. Apparently plastic surgery isnt actually done with plastic.

I thought that Roy Orbison was blind until just a few years ago because he always wore those big, black sunglasses!

I convinced my boyfriend that Carly Simon and Mick Jagger had an affair and had a baby and that's why he sang back-up on "You're so Vain." To this day, he gets mad when I tease him!
