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!!!

Up until the age of about 9 or so, I believed that when you played any song, be it on tape or vinyl, that the band responsible would have to perform that song at that time, wherever they were. I believed this was due to a psychic signal, or an alarm call of some description. Strange enough? This also led to the belief that if more than one person in the world tried to listen to the same song the band would be unable to cope with playing both the start and middle of a song at the same time and would subsequently explode, or something. I have since become a musician and, needless to say, am worried about releasing material. I am also a DJ so may be responsible for the death of many artists. Sorry.

I remember telling my sister when she was little that I could read the words to a song playing on our record player(yes, I am very old) - if you look really closely, you can see the words written in the grooves you know!! Of course I knew the words anyway, but she believed it to be true. I thought it was so sweet.

When I was little, my dad would play Patsy Cline songs all the time. I would sing along, and once he even told me that he thought I was pretty good at sounding like her, so I for a while I thought that I was born to be the next Patsy Cline. I'm still working on that ;)
