I thought that Captain & Tennille was just one man, named Captain Antenille. Whenever I heard my mother talk about "him," I thought that he must be from France if he had a last name like that!
My ex-girlfriend took a lot of convincing that Annie Lennox was the lead singer of the Eurythmics, & not just a singer who sang in a similar style.
When i was really little, like three, i saw Cliff Richard performing on tv. He was wearing a really shiny, sparkling white suit and and for some reason this held so much appeal. So i told my mom that i was going to marry Cliff Richard one day and he would wait for me. I really believed that he would... Good thing the Peter Pan of Pop never aged hey? Needless to say i am still ripped off by my entire family and my boyfriend, 18 years later.
I sincerely beleived john lennon was a walrus until i was about six. I think you beatles fans out there can guess why.
I believed that when I watched the labyrinth or listened to David Bowie songs, David could see and hear me and was singing to and about me, and acting just for me in the film, if you know what I mean. David used to make me feel very bashful and shy, seeing has he's so good looking and impressive. I was convinced we were friends.
I also thought that Lindsifame wrote the song Lady Eleanor about me (seeing as it's my name) and that when they sung it they were inside my tape player singing it TO me. My mum used to put it on the stereo when she gave me a bath and I would blush and get really shy.
I'm 20 now and still have a massive crush on David Bowie.
I used to think the Beatles were gay because they all lived together in a yellow submarine.
When I first heard about the band Motion City Soundtrack. I thought there was a movie called Motion City and it had a soundtrack.
Before I ever saw photos or video of the Beatles and had only heard their songs on the radio, I believed they were all robots, because I never heard intakes of breath when they sang.
Up until I was about 11 or so, I believed that Cher was a man, since she has a rather deep voice for a lady. Me and a friend were hanging out one day listening to the radio, when one of Cher's songs came on. I said to her how that "man" had a rather unusual voice. It was then that I found out that it was not, indeed, a man siging, but that it was just a woman with a deep voice. I'm now 20 and still get a laugh out of this, especially when I hear that particular song on the radio.
when i was very young, someone told me that mariah carey was half black while her music video was on tv.
she was wearing black tights at the time and i said, "duh. i know. the bottom half!"
Until I was about 4, I used to think that every song on the radio was written and performed by someone i knew. I would listen and try to figure out which of my relatives was singing. It was just beyond me that there were people in the world i'd never net. Once I told my mom I wanted to hear the song my Uncle Tom sings, and she explained that the person singing was actually Phil Collins.
i was obsessed with the spice girls and was convinced that at any time i would bump into them in the street and they would ask me to be the 6th member so i learned all their songs and was always looking out for them wherever i went
For some reason, I got Andy Williams and Neil Diamond confused via the songs...then I figured it out via Christmas tunes...
When I was little I got Barry Manilo and Baryy WHite mixed up. I used to think Barry Manilo was the Barry with the deep sexy voice. I thought Barry White was the white Barry
Once when I was 5, I had a friend sleep over at my house and that night my mom watched a show about Michael Jackson's life. We saw that in the older pictures of him he was black, and in the newer hew was white. We for some reason thought that Michael Jackson was dead, so we came up with this theory that when you die, if you are black you become white. My friemd and I are both white, so we thought when we died, we would be black. I didn't find out what really happened until I was 8.
I used to think that Michael Buble's last name rhymed with the word "Bugle"....until one day my mom confirmed that it is indeed pronounced "boo-blay", not "bewble" lol!!!
When I was younger, I thought that musicians would only want to ever listen to the music that they played. So when I was a kid,I read an an interview with a male pop artist. The interviewer asked him bands he liked to listen to. In my childish brain, I thought 'duhh, of course he listens to himself!'
I was surprised to learn that that particular pop singer was into the Beatles.
...I'm sure he was probably just trying to sound modest, though.
I used to think that Bob Marley was a fictional character from the story "A Christmas Carol". This was probably due to the fact that in "Muppet Christmas Carol", Statler and Waldorf (the two old man Muppets who heckled the audience in "The Muppet Show") played Jacob and Robert Marley. I knew at the time I saw this that "Bob" was a nickname for people named "Robert", so when I saw VH1's "100 Greatest Artists of Rock And Roll" and Bob Marley was featured on there, I was confused as to why a character from "A Christmas Carol" would be considered a rock musician (or a musician of any genre, for that matter.)
When i was about 9 my dad showed me a video of micahel jackson and i said that lady sings weird but then my dad told me it was a guy and later i showed one of my friends that video and it was is video beat it and she thought he was cute until she found out the truth about him lol
When I was about 7 there was a big field by my school and a small shack. I was told that Bon Jovi lived there. That was enough to convince me. After a while that shack was torn down and loads of houses took over. I wondered what happened to poor Bon Jovi.
