I used to think when a member of a band would release a solo album, they would just play their own instruments parts of the bands famous songs.

Because of her hoarse voice, I thought Macy Gray was really old, probably somewhere in her 80s (she's around 35 right now).

When Abbamania was on tv as a tribute thing, I watched it, and after hearing the lyrics 'thank Abba for the music', I was convinced that Abba invented music, and before they were around, it didn't exist...

I was at the roller skating rink in the 70's and heard a great song, so I asked the DJ for the title. I went to the record store and, unable to find it, asked a clerk for help. "What's the name of the song?" he asked. "Paradise," I replied. "And who sings it?" it took me a moment to remember what the DJ had said but then - "it's by The Dashboard Light!"

When I was younger I thought that band names made the band literally what their name said they were. This lead me to believe that The Beatles broke up because The Byrds ate them. I was also very confused that Monkees and Doors could play instruments.

When I was younger my Granma & Grandad lived round the corner from Elton Road. My Grandad once told me it was called this because Elton John lived there. I believed him for years and years. I would tell my friends that Elton John lived round the corner from my Grandad! It was only a few months ago (i'm now 22) that I found out he was winding me up. I was so sad that my claim to fame wasn't true.

When I was in middle school that boy band Hanson had just came out. Their big hit was that 'Mmbop' song. I used to hear it on the radio all the time and thought it was a girl group singing because they sounded like girls. It wasn't until a friend brought the CD to school talking about how hot they were that I realized they were boys. I didn't feel stupid, however because my other friend who was with us said "I thought they were girls!" Me too!

I used to think Elotn John was really weird (for other reasons than the obvious). I didn't know Elton was a first name, I only knew John was, so until I was like ten I was convinced he was going through some awkward phase where he reversed his first and last name becasue he was pissed at something, and that his name was actually John Elton.

When I was a teenager I went to a Beach Boys concert with my cousins. They were talking about music they liked, and mentioned Simon and Garfunkel. I thought they were making it up and refused to believe in a band with such a silly name. Weeks later my cousins mailed me a tape of Simon & Garfunkel. Who knew?

Growing up in the sixties, when Bobby Vee and Bobby Vinton were both popular singers, I thought all the while that they were the same. I thought that Bobby Vinton had become so popular that they could call him simply "Bobby V." and everyone would know whom they were talking about, But, in fact, I DIDN'T know whom they were talking about until the late 1980s or so, when I finally realized that they were two different singers.

I used to believe that the band Hawk Nelson was just one guy! It really sounds like one person, and I would always think how horrible it was that anyone would name their son Hawk. It wasn't until a few weeks ago, when someone asked me if I like that band. I tried to convince them it was just a singer...but I was wrong!

When I was little, there were a lot of teen singers and bands, so I asumed all singers were around 16. If I heard of a singer who was over 20 I would be like " Oh my gosh, they're old!"

I used to mix up Madonna and Marilyn Monroe. Not only that, but I also used to mix up Marilyn Monroe and Marilyn Manson. So sometimes Madonna was the pretty lady with the flying dress, and sometimes she was this scary punk rock guy.

I used to believe that the pop charts were musical versions of lonely hearts columns and all singers were looking for love. I once announced to my dad that Madonna (in 1988) would never get a boyfriend looking like that!
