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!

One time in an old Saturday Night Live episode, I saw a cute guy singer with long hair, he was very attractive...
Later I found out it was Patti Smith.
Oops.

Now I know that she's a girl!!

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!

I used to believe there were two Axl Rose(s) when I was about ten. This was prompted by what I heard as two distictly different but similar enough voices in the song "Sweet Child o' mine". I now understand that they were overdubs! Well, this belief was furthered by the video for the song which Axl constantly goes from being shot in black and white to being shot in color. The transformation of Axl 1 into Axl 2 is most apparent in the "where do we go" part of the video where his voice not only changes, but he has from what I remember, the shakes, as well as an incredible hulk type look on his face as he changes once again from black & white to color along with an evident voice character change....
wouldn't have been great to have to Axl's?
don't let me get started with my nine year old interpretation to the lyrics of "Paradise City"...

Once, when I was about 8, I was in my local Woolworths and saw an album chart, in which many of the albums were by "Various". I wondered to myself why I'd never heard of Various before if they were popular enough to have that many albums in the chart at the same time.

I suppose it's the musical equivalent of the assumption that Anonymous was a prolific poet.

I used to think that my dad was the bass player for AC/DC. I don't exactly remember how I came by this belief, but I think it has something to do with the fact that my mom and I were listening to AC/DC when I asked her what band my dad was in.

When I was younger I had a habit of getting my pop stars mixed up. Elton John was head of the Beatles, Pink Floyd sang "Get this Party Started" and even though everyone else was confused, I knew Marilyn Monroe was a boy.

When i first heard of Eminem, i thought he was African American. I mean, there aren't many white rappers nowadays, now are there?

I used to believe that Elvis died from eating too many peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. My mom told me that, and I believed her for quite awhile.

Until recently, I didn't know who Mick Jagger was (he's an actor and film producer and does some other stuff). I always thought that his name was actually McJagger, so it was obvious to me that he must be a rapper, because they always have weird 1-word names. Good thing I never tried to start a conversation about McJagger's new rap songs...
