I used to believe that every time I played a CD the singer would have to stop whatever he or she was doing, wherever they were in the world, and start singing for me.

After Puff Daddy's "I'll be Missing You" came out, my father explained that The Police had sung the original song. I thought the actual police force had realised a musical number for quite some time

When I was little I thought Michael Jackson was really a tough guy. The video "Bad" had come out and I saw him dressed in leather and heard the lyrics and I actually thought people were afraid of him because he was so tough.

when i was around 4 i told my dad i want an electric guitar and he told me if you don't know how to play it you will electrocute. so everytime i saw bands or people who played electric guitars at tv i always said that they were doing playback even if they said its live. i kept thinking that until i was 11-12. i don't know why nobody told me the truth cos they knew what i was thinking cos i was telling them. but i always thought how they were learning to play guitar if they were electrocuted... i didn't figured it out yet...

When I was about 7 or 8 (in the early 1990s), I was riding with my uncle in his car. He had some music playing, and when I asked him who it was he said, "Alice in Chains." Apparently I must not have noticed that a man was singing, because I answered, "Oh, I've never heard of her before!"

I thought playing "air guitar" was a real instrument. I couldn't quite picture what it looked like but I imagined it was like an accordion or maybe an organ, with tubes that pushed the air through. I didn't find out what it really was until I was about sixteen!

When I was little I asked my dad why Ray Charles and Stevie Wonder wore sunglasses when they were blind. His reply was "because they don't have eyes".

I pictured empty holes in their heads where their eyeballs should be.

My mom found out what I believed when I was in my early 20's and laughed. I felt pretty stupid.

When I was about 10 or 11, I had a HUGE crush on Jon Bon Jovi. A girl in my 5th grade class had told me that he lived in the next town over. I wanted to believe her but wasn't quite sure so I sent an extremely mushy fan letter proclaiming my love to him to the address she provided me. when it got sent back to me marked "no such address" I was mad... I actually paid the girl for that address

I used to believe that the beetles were a band of beetles. I never listened to them because I thought I wouldn't understand what they were saying and it would just be rubbish. It was hilarious. My mom just kept trying to make me listen to them but I wouldn't budge. Finally she decided to play it on the radio on her cd without telling me. When it came on I said " Who is this?" and she said the beetles and I covered my ears and screamed!!

When I was a child we had a BIG console stereo. I used to believe that tiny musicians lived in there and played songs whenever mom wanted them to.

When I was young, I don't know why, but I thought concerts were an actual battle of multiple bands playing and then the audience would vote for whom they thought won the concert.

I saw Michael Jackson when he was on BBC News alot in like 2002 and when I saw the red lips and long hair I was convinced he was a woman. I would get into arguments with my mum and dad.
