I used to think that "Thank You For The Music" was an old wartime song. This is because Vera Lynn oftne used to sing it on Pebble Mill at One and the like in the late seventies.

My little sister used to have her own version of Baa Baa Black Sheep :
"Baa Baa Black Sheep, have you any wool?
Yes sir, yes sir, three bags full
One for the master, one for the dame
And one for the little girl with holes in her socks."
I have no idea where she picked that up!

I always thought the line in the Carly Simon song about Warren Baity (not sure if the surname is spelt right - sorry Warren!) was about the 'wife of a postman' not a close friend.

I used to think that music was recorded by many, many tape recorders when the artists were playing their songs. If it was a really popular album, the artist had to do this over and over again because there were not as many tape recorders as tapes.

When I was about 5 I believed that in rock songs space was left after every line so that you could repeat the words that had just been sung.

When I was in elementary school about 45 years ago, the class sang Christmas songs. Being Jewish, I didn't know what these songs were about--I just tried to sing them with the rest of the kids. When they sang, Oh Tannenbaum, I thought everyone was singing about my relatives, the Tenenbaums. When everyone was singing "Hark the Herald Angels Sing," I was really wondering if it was about my Uncle Harold or my Cousin Harold Tenenbaum.

whilst listening to a paul Simon CD, my son asked if that song about 'loads of ways to dump your girlfriend' (50 ways to leave your lover)was on it, I nearly crashed the car laughing!

In middle school, though I was on the verge of abandoning Christianity, I still was afraid of hidden messages in heavy metal music. Consequently, I was wary when listening to White Zombie and never listened for too protracted a period, lest I be indoctrinated into whatever brand of satanism Rob Zombie and his crew were peddling.

When I was young, I grew up in Wrexham, North Wales, where there's a district called Bersham (where the steelworks were). I used to believe that Sham 69's Hersham Boys song was in fact about a bunch of party-animal Wrexham lads from said district. How wrong I was.

I told my brother, Myles Kidd , a dumb story about how the Moody Blues all died tragically after recording 'Nights in White Satin'.
He used to cry whenever he heard it and only recently found out the truth after 20-odd years.

I thought that the time duration listed after a song on a record (e.g., 3:30) referred to the time of day the song was recorded.

I used to believe that the song "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" by Elton John was actually performed by the group Kansas, because Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz was from Kansas. I was seven or so, and my mom loved the gorup Kansas, so I just assumed...

I thught when a song was a remix that it meant that it was two songs mixed together to make one I'd ask people what song it was mixed with and they'd answer me so i thought i was right.

I used to believe that songs had no words, they were just utteringsof vowels and consonants with a beat.
Then I started to make out some words out of songs and got myself together.

I used to think "The Girl Is Mine", sung by Michael Jackson and Paul McCartney was about a child custody battle. I thought the Michael Jackson voice was a woman and it was two parents who were going through a divorce arguing over who got to keep their daughter.

When I was growing up we never played rock and roll in the house, only classical music. The first time I ever heard rock and roll I couldn't make out the words clearly, and I thought the singer was singing nonsense words. I concluded that rock and roll was ALWAYS nonsense words, and I believed that for a long time..
