I used to believe that "I" was the baby babbling in Aaliyah's song "are you that somebody." And I'll try to mimic the song as if I was still a baby... ( I was 3yrs old when it came out) I did this until I was 6...
i used to think that whenever my sister would play music on her iPod or listen to a song on the radio. i thought that the singer lived in the iPod or radio and sung it every time it played
I used to believe that no one could hear me when I hummed
When I was younger, my older sister would blast the top 40 hits while she got ready for school. This was when Autotune became popular, and I thought the majority of songs were sang by robots, like in SpongeBob. Every morning I would do the robot dance to the radio, and I never understood why my sister looked at me like I was crazy.
I used to believe that Britney Spears' song "If U Seek Amy" was about a girl trying to find her lost best friend.
I used to believe that Christina Aguilera's song "Genie in a Bottle" was about an actual genie. It wasn't until I was about 12 that I listened again and got what the song was really about…
When I was little, I thought cassette tapes had sheet music written on them and little creatures would play and sing as they tape spun inside the tape player.
I used to believe that 'heavy metal' meant the musical instruments were literally heavier than usual because they were made of steel or something.
In the last verse of Billy Joel's We Didn't Start the Fire, he says "homeless vets". Up until recently, I thought Billy Joel was saying "homo sex".
My older sisters loved Gloria Estefan when I was little. One of their favorite songs to play was "Rhythm is Gonna Get You." I was terrified, because I didn't know what rhythm was, and I didn't want it to get me when I turn out all the lights!
On the song "I'm too Sexy" by Right Said Fred I thought the line "I'm a model, you know what I mean" was "I'm a martyr, you know what I mean" I figured some people might think it was sexy if you were willing to suffer for your beliefs.
I used to believe that the song "Kiss From a Rose" by Seal was originally sung by Chuck E. Cheese and his band because I saw it in their animatronic show. It was not until I was like 12 did I hear that song in the car and I asked my mom, "Why is a Chuck E. Cheese song playing on the radio?"
I used to believe that records housed little people inside the grooves. Music was made when the needle hit them on the head and they made whatever noise was assigned to them.
That a childhood song was made up of these nonsensical words: Mareseedoughs and doughseedoughs and little lambsy divies.
When I was a kid I thought the song "Planet Claire" by The-B52s was about my mom specifically (her name is Claire) and thought it was really cool they made a song about her (to this day I am not sure who it is really named after if anyone)
Part of the reason I'm so rebellious in ways you can't imagine could be from this Sesame Street song called "It's Hip To Be A Square" that would play a lot back when I watched it. I took it to mean a square was considered a cool person.
I used to think that the line "just look over your shoulder" from Tarzan was "just a bottle of soda". I guess I was a little obsessed with caffeine...
When I was little, I always listened to a Sesame Street tape in the car. When I asked my mom something about one of the songs that was playing, she said she couldn't hear it because it was only playing in the back of the car (we drove a van with two different speakers). So I used to think that the characters from Sesame Street were in the trunk and singing, so I would always look back there!
I believed for a very long time that the Beatles were one of those bands that wrote for children. I loved "Octopuses Garden in the Shade." It took until four weeks ago, when I listened to all of Abbey Road.
Until about age 9, I thought there was a country called "Operaland" where everyone sang instead of talking.
