I thought that song, "If You're Happy And You Know It" put lots of pressure on kids. Like, what if you DON'T know when you're happy, then what?
I have no idea why, but I used to believe that "The Little Drummer Boy," my favorite Christmas carol as a child, and "Do You Hear What I Hear?" were the same song. Except the former was the original and better version, while the latter was a crappy spinoff in which someone had decided to mess with the tune and add their own lyrics. Whenever I heard "Do You Hear What I Hear?" sung on the radio at Christmas, I felt angry at the artist for singing "The Little Drummer Boy" wrong and ruining it.
In nursery school I was taught a song, a part of which mentioned making tea for your parents after they came back home from work. At that time I didn't know what tea was, saw I imagined having to serve my parents huge chunks of meat.
My aunt told me that in order to play her old piano you first had to drop a few coins in between the slots of the keys. So for quite a few years I would ask my grandma for coins when I was over, and slip them in between and under the keys.
It took me quite a while to realize she was only kidding!
When I was little I couldn't understand how my friends would know which 45 records to buy at the store. I asked them did the store let you listen to them before you bought them? It didn't occur to me that they bought songs they had heard on the radio, because we weren't allowed to listen to the radio.
I was such a sheltered kid.
Well, this isn't really miheard, ju8st misunderstood i suppose. There is a piece of classical music on guitar called air on the G-string, meaning guitar, but i wasn't too clued up on instruments at the time, so i thought it was like describing a blow-job or something.
i used to believe that all rock music had subliminal messaging and i was scared to ever start liking rock music....now thats all i listen to \m/
I just found out that Weezer was not a person.
When I was about 5, my family and sunday school liked to sing the song "Climb up Sunshine Mountain." The lyrics said "Climb up Sunshine Mountain, faces all aglow." I thought that the glowing faces were what the mountain was made of. I always felt eerie hearing about little kids climb up (what I pictured to be) a mountain giant green monster faces.
When I was young I thought that piano notes stood for words. Now I think about how could you play piano with them?
i used to think all songs were exactly one minute long, and it wasn't until i was nine that i realized that wasn't true.
i used to think air guitar was the same as electric guitar, i just thought air guitar was ran by air.
I used to think that the reason people were bad is because they listen to rap music and no other reason. But I listen to a lot of rap now, 4 years later
I always thought that "Staying Alive" by the Bee Gees was sung by Aretha Franklin.
When I was young, my mom listened to the oldies station on the radio a lot. I grew up believing that all the old songs were very recent. It didn't even occur to me until later that there other styles of music, and that the songs I'd heard weren't necessarily the most popular ones at the time.
I used to think that in the song "beer for my horses" that toby keith and willie nelson actually drank whiskey and gave beer to their horses lol
When I first heard as a child the song, "What Child Is This?", with its line "Whom angels greet with anthems sweet", I thought that anthems were some kind of flowers.
I once was terrified of the Christmas song "Deck the Halls" because I was certain that the line, "troll the ancient yuletide carol" referred to a big mean troll tending to a fireplace.
I used to think that the Police song, Roxanne, was about traffic lights.
I was about 14 when I figured it out.
As a child, I heard the song "Bristol Stomp" by the Dovells. I assumed then that the title dance was named for the only Bristol I then had heard of, the one along the Tennessee / Virginia border. After growing up, I learned that the original (and probably most famous) Bristol is in England. I decided I surely must have been mistaken, and that Bristol, England was surely the dance's place of origin. Eventually I learned that I'd been wrong both times. The actual place referred to in the song is Bristol, Pennsylvania.
