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. :)

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.

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.

When I was little I would go to symphonies with my parents. When the orchestra would tune their instruments I thought it was a song that you HAD to play before every show. Turns out it's not a song and it's a good thing to tune.

I used to believe that there were really small people inside records singing the songs and playing the music. My mom however knew better and my butt found out too when she come home one day and many of her LP's were scattered and broken around the livingroom.`

i used to think that the song for Armagedon, "dont wanna close my eyes, cuz i miss u baby and i dont wanna miss athing" was sung by bruce willis, and thats why he had a lead role in the moive. i remember having a debate with a friend, and thought they were crazy saying it was Aerosmith.

when i was a kid i didn't understand the concept of "recordings", so when i used to play my albums i thought they were all singing it live in a studio somewhere and it was being somehow beamed to my bedroom. Arthur Lowe (British actor) narrated my Mr Men tapes, i was about 5 when he died, and i cried because i thought i couldn't listen to them anymore, thats when my mum explained about recordings!!!
