"California Gurls" by Katy Perry has the lyric "We don't mind sand in our stilettos". When I was 12 I asked my mom what stilettos were and she answered with '"spiky heels". At that time I had dry skin on my heels and I thought that was what stilettos were.

Before I knew inner monologues existed, I thought "getting a song stuck in your head" meant seeing the words in your head.

The singer, Pink, has a song called "So What" which has the lyric "I'm gonna drink my money". Its music video has her drinking at that part. I thought she was swallowing dollar bills and coins!

When I first saw an accordion, I thought it was an engine from a car or truck. I thought they would take it out of the vehicle and stretch it back and forth so they can get dirt and dust out of it. I also wondered why it made a lot of noise and why someone would keep it in their house. I later learned it was only a musical instrument when my grandparents showed one to me. I felt so embarrassed and dumbfounded when they told me what it really was...

I used to think that all music was made by this one big guy, (who in my mind looked something like Danny Devito) who wore a blue and orange vertical-striped polo shirt. He sang every song, and did the instruments for every song. I have no idea where that thought originally came from.

When I was little, when the band "Linkin Park" emerged, I thought that the radio said that they were playing a song from 'years and years ago'. Being a kid who only liked new songs, I would switch over whenever they'd play. When I heard 'It is love' on the radio regularly though, I was surprised because I thought it was an old song.

I used to hate that song about the Weeping Willow "crying on his pillow" because I thought it was an actual guy as opposed to a tree, and thought it was too sad. Then, I learnt that Willow was a girl's name and thought that maybe the man was actually named William.

I used to think bands or singers could be sued for plagiarism if they coincidentally had a song that was too similar to one by another artist, but not as a cover!

There's a song which has lyrics that are basically just a bunch of actions followed by "Rawhide" and then it starts again.
Up until I was *seventeen*, I had only heard of rawhide as that stuff you give dogs to chew on, so I thought that it was akin to have a song where you shout, "Dog food!" at random intervals, so the song made no sense to me.

I used to listen to this song at school, and the lyrics were things like "Welcome back" and "We're proud of you". I thought it was about a girl (no idea why I specifically thought she was a girl) graduating a boarding high school, and it was sung by her parents.

Later, I learned that it was about welcoming soldiers back after a war, but I thought my version was better.

When I was a child, I used to believe the singer or the music group lived in my CD's and they allowed to sing (and live) only when I wanted.
