I used to believe that songs didnt have lyrics, and singers were making just pointless meaningless melodic sounds.

I used to think that the song "Cocaine" was "Cocoa." I would go around the house singing "she don't like... cocoa."

At about four years old, (in the '50s), I heard a song on the radio, wherein a woman was singing, "Since I lost my baby, I almost lost my mind..." This seemed to me completely tragic. I had a little brother, and could imagine how upset Mom would be if she lost him.

I got a sound recorder thing and one time, when I was little, used it and sang into it. Afterwards, I was very embarrassed if anyone heard me sing, so I unravelled the cassette and threw it out. Then, I feared that the government would find the cassette in the junkyard, put it back together, listen to it and find out who made it. I was scared to death and embarrassed.

When I was little, I had this superstition that if I said the word "die", I would die. So whenever I heard a song on the radio with 'The Word' in it, I would substitute a word that sounded the same (like cry or try)....my parents thought I was very odd...

When i was small, i thought that when a song used tp play on the radio, it was because the artist came to play it at the radio station... :P

When I was little my older brother would listen to the song "Iron Man". In the beginning of the song, a metallic voice says "I.. AM... IRON MAN!" That freaked me out so bad... I always envisioned a huge metal robot crashing through the window and killing me.

when i was a little kid, I thought the song "Afternoon Delight" was about a picnic. I still remember sitting in the back of my parent's Chevy Nova, singing "skyrockets in flight, afternoon delight!" Years later when I heard it again I was SHOCKED at it's real meaning!!!!

I used to believe that an 'air guitar' was another word for a banjo. I have no idea why I believed this, but it led to much confusion whenever my family and I saw someone busking on the street with a banjo.

You know that song "The Lion Sleeps Tonight"? Well, when I was around 5, I asked my dad who sang it, and he apparently didn't know so he just said "No one knows..."
So for years I honestly thought that no one knew who sang that song and that it must have been sang by ghosts in heaven.

When songs came on the radio, adults would say, 'Oh, that's by so-and-so.' I was amazed they knew so much, and scared that knowing who sang what songs was something you were forced to memorize in school.

When I was 6 or 7, I used to think that the Hall & Oates song "Sara Smile" was written just for me....In my mind, there was no other explaination for the inclusion of the name "Sarah" into a song.

One day, when I was about six, a Destiny's Child song called Jumpin Jumpin came on. Where it says, "Cause it's 11:30 and da club is Jumpin, Jumpin" I imagined people owning a secret club in a treehouse jumping up and down. When I asked my sister(who was 16 at the time) why they were singing about a treehouse, she just laughed.
