When I was really little I watched sesame street and my favourite song was a parody of Madonna's Material Girl called Cereal Girl, because I also walways ate cereal. My Aunt had a disco for her birthday once and they played the real version, and when I heard someone say something about 'the real material girl' i naturally assumed that they were talking about me.
I used to think that the air guitar was a real instrument, like an air rifle is a real gun. I learnt the truth about a month ago, i am 14
When I was about 5 I was watching Barney and how people started singing and automatically music came. I thought it was possible so I went into my room and starting singing but no music played.
whenever i heard a melody, i thought it stuck in my stomach when i heard it in my mind
When I was 6 or 7, I really liked the duet "Perhaps Love" by John Denver and Placido Domingo, just that at that time, I didn't know it was Denver and Domingo. I used to think a) it was 3 people singing and b) that those were the 3 knights from the "Neverending Story" by Michael Ende (which was also among my favorite books at that time). I always imagined how they would ride around all day fighting enemies and at night sit at the campfire to sing this song together. Those were the days. ;)
Ya know the song Im Blue by Eiffel 65? well before i seen the real name of the song.. i always thought they "da ba dee daba di" part was "im blue...i was beat i will die.." and i still think it sounds like it.. listen closely.. it does
My uncle had an song book with "Home on the Range" in it. I'd never come across the word "seldom" before, so when it came to the line "where seldom is heard a discouraging word" I thought this meant that there was this rural idyll "where the deer and the antelope play" but someone kept coming along and spoiling it by saying "seldom", which was "a discouraging word" (perhaps because no one knew what it meant.
When I heard the line about "figgy pudding" in the "We Wish You a Merry Christmas" song. it grossed me out. For some reason I assumed that figgy pudding was made of ground-up pigs, simply because figgy rhymes with piggy.
I used to think that singers couldn't talk-they could only communicate by singing.
My family was riding in the car with the radio on. A song came on and my little brother (about 4 at the time) was singing along. But the song had no words. I asked him what he was doing and he replied, "I'm singing the drums."
When I was in grede 3 or 4, my friend scott told me the words to "the 12 days of christmas" went "on the 1st day of christmas Osama gave to me... a blowtorch in a pear tree" This was meant as a joke but I really, truly believed those were the lyrics...Until i got in trouble for singing them at a holiday sing-a-long...
the first line of the australian national anthem is "australians all let us rejoice." i remember having an argument with my brother when we were in primary school because i was convinced that the line was "australians all eat ostriches...". needless to say, i was, er, wrong.
One time when I was VERY young some neighbors were playing the popular at-te-time "Pop Music" by M and I asked my mother what that soundwas, coming from next door..she said it was the neighbors playing pop music. Well from then on anytime I heard people talking about pop music(in general), I would yell that it COULD NOT be pop music, since only 'Pop Music' was pop music..took me a year or so and by then, M had become a one-hit-wonder!
my mom and dad used to tell me if i listened to any music promoting violence or harsh language, that whatever they're talking about in the song i'm listening to, that same thing would happen to me!
When I saw a conductor leading an orchestra, I thought that every time they moved their hand, it represented a different note. I wanted to join the school orchestra, but I was worried that I wouldn't be able to remember which hand gesture stood for which note. Now I play the violin, and I am satisfied to know that I don't have to memorize hand gestures. :)
when i was little i used to think that aerosmith song jainies got a gun was jaimies got a gun. i used to freak out since jaimie is my name and tell everyone the song wasn't true. i felt like a moron when i found out it was janie
On the back cover of records, if a song title had an asterisk next to it, I thought my mom put it there to indicate which songs were her favorites.
I used to believe The Beatles sang "Hey Hey, were' the Monkey's".
My dad had a really good voice, and to me he sounded like an opera singer. Sometimes he also sang music from the 70s. So whenever I heard an opera singer, or whenever I heard like the Carpenters singing, I was totally convinced that it was my dad singing on the radio or the recordor tape or whatever. It was years before I figured out that my dad did not sing on the radio or on a record or tape.
