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.
When I was young, I used to think Queen's 'Bohemium Rhapsody' was our national anthrem and not Amhán Na bhFiann.
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.`
when i was about 4 or 5 for some reason when ever i sang roudolph the red nose reindeer I changed the words to : Rouldolph the red nose reindeer had a very lound maouth and if you ever saw him he would talk to you.
I dont know why i did that maybe i thought my version was better or that i had invented a new christmas song
When i was little i used to think that if i listened to " old people" music i would transform into an " old person"
I used to think that singers would go to a big building fild with cd's that had backround music on it and then they would pick one. Then put the tape on whenever they sang.
i belived that music could hipnotize people
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!!!
I used to believe that if I sang the Diet Coke song the way Ray Charles did in his commercials, I'd get sick.
As an infant, I believed talking heads' song 'And She Was' was all about me.
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 ;)
This wasn't my belief, but rather that of a very young piano student of my mother's. The student was practicing a transcription of a piece by Georg Philipp Telemann, and Mom thought the student might be interested to know just how long this music has been with us. She pointed to the dates 1681-1767 under the little picture of the composer with his powdered wig and told the student that that's when he lived, so this piece was around 300 years old. The student said, "Oh... I thought that was his phone number!"
The first few times I heard "We Built This City" by Starship, I thought that there was something wrong with my radio and the station was cutting in and out, until I realised that was part of the song.
A long time ago, I had a book on LP (this is when tapes were starting to get more popular) that was a blatant plagurization of "The Little Engine that Could" story. The book was called "Puff 'n Toot," and one of the songs on its record was sung by a cow on the tracks, I think it was titled "Moo-Moo the Cow." I hated this song with such a passion, and my little sister knew this, so any time she wanted to annoy me, all she would have to do was sing this song.
To this day, even hearing this song sends me into a rage! I don't know why!
I am thoroughly ashamed of this one - when I was EIGHT I cried myself to sleep over the Meatball Song. I don't know what it's really called - it's the one about "I lost my poor meatball when somebody sneezed" etc. 6 months later thy tried to teach it to us in music lessons. I went beserk and spent the lesson in the corrior with my hands over my ears.
I still hate that song - now it doesn't upset me but it's too stupid to be funny.
whenever my gran came to visit us, my mum would make us all sing that song "She'll be comin round the mountain when she comes..." or something along those lines (the song itself is a little vague.....:) ) and I used to think that this song was written about my granny and that she must be really famous. well, it was quite hilly where she came from....
my dad played the guitar and although some of the songs were his own, i thought any song he played and sang that i hadn't heard before was his. sometimes it wasn't until years later when i'd hear a song on the radio and recognize it that i'd realize my dad hadn't made up that one, too.
