My name is Julia and I used to believe that the Beatles song "Julia" was about me! I was so happy when a heard it on a cassette tape... but then I found out that it was about a different Julia.

I guess I didn't think about how it was possible to write a song about me before I was even born.

Julia (duh)

I didn't know that song 'Skip to the Loo' was about skipping to the restroom. I thought it was about skipping to the beat of a song. For years I called music beats, loo.

I didn't realize 'K-I-S-S-I-N-G-' in 'Robby and Mary- et cetra- sitting in a tree' spelled Kissing until a year ago ^-^ I thought they just put a couple of letters together to make the song longer.

When I was little I heard that one Christmas carroll with the phrase "Jack Frost nipping at your nose". I had the most horrible mental picture of an elf with jagged teeth ripping my nose off.

When I was young my parents used to "force" me to listen to the Beatles. One of my favorites was the one entitled, "Can't Buy Me Love" but it was my favorite because I thought they were saying "(why) can't bobby love?"

When I was younger, I used to watch music videos, which were typically just spliced together concert footage. Eventually I saw one with a story and they had a dramatic shot where the lyrics kept going but the singer stopped singing, and then for a while I was convinced that singers had to be ventriloquists and they only moved their mouths to help everyone else learn the words, too. Then I saw a video where there were a bunch of jump cuts where the singer had on different outfits (so the singer was in a new outfit every two seconds but you never saw them change). That one had me stumped for weeks.

One day while listening to the radio, a song came on and my mother exclaimed happily "Oh, it's my song!" I took it literally, and then went around telling people that my mother was the singer of that particular song for years after!

When I was younger I thought that Bennie and the Jets was a real band (not just a song). We had to do an art project we had to draw our favorite band and i drew Bennie and the Jets!

When I was little we used to go to a diner after church every Sunday to have breakfast. Each table had a jukebox where you would put a quarter in and hear a few tunes. I was about 4 or 5 at the time, and used to wonder how the band knew to start playing the song I wanted after I put the quarter in. I figured the quarter must have traveled down a long tube into a back room in the restaurant where a monkey would catch the quarter and bring it to the band, and they would say "Thanks!" and start playing. The only thing I couldn't figure out was how the monkey was able to tell them to play "American Pie" by Don McLean and not one of the other hundred songs in the jukebox. Hmmmmmmmmm.....

Every time I heard the Elvis song - Return to Sender, I thought he was singing a song specifically to me. I thought he was singing, Return to 'Cinda'

When I was a kid my mom would sing the song "Johnny Angel" to me. I thought she had made it up just for me. Until one day when I was 16 that song came on the radio. I could not believe it.

i used to believe that in that song "radio killed the radio star" ment that radio was a person who killed another radio and that radios could come to life. Neadless to say, I was a little afraid of radios.

I used to think that record players were connected to special phone booths. The singers on record albums would wait in those booths, then sing into the telephone receiver when you played their songs.
