Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer was one of my favorite songs as a kid. The part where it says: "then how the reindeer loved him" was my favorite part. It took me years to figure out "then how" wasn't the name of a reindeer. My girlfriend still teases me about it to this day.

My Mom use to try to keep is from having the radio on before school and she would say, "Sing before seven cry before eleven". We use to like to sing along with the radio and she really just wanted us to be quiet.

When I was little and records were still popular, I thought that the singers singing the songs were singing live right at that moment and that if I kept playing either a particular song, or the whole record over and over, that eventually they'd get tired of singing the same songs over and over and over and would eventually yell at me to "pick another song or artist or album". LOL.

When I was around seven years old, Queen came out with "Bohemian Rhapsody." I figured out that it was about a murderer condemned to die. I asked my mother how they would kill him. She told me that they would put him in a large box and close the lid, and he would proceed to suffocate and die. To this day, when I hear the gong struck at the end of the song, I picture two flaps closing on a really big cardboard box.

When I heard Zombie by The Cranberries for the first time I thought it was a russian band or something like that. I didn't know English really well back then (I'm Dutch and I was about 13 when I heard it for the first time), and to me she was singing something like eeeeeejawaaaaa. I thought 'cool, I didn't know they made such great music in Russia'. I really believed this for some months.

I thought God drove a car like ours - a Honda. The song DID say "fill the heavens with sweet Accords..."

when Rockwell's song came out "I always feel like somebody's watching me" (or something like that) i believe that Rockwell and Michael Jackson(because that's what he sounded like) were both stalking me and watching me everywhere i went...i hurried home from school looking over my shoulder for about a month after that song became popular.

I used to think the Beach Boys song "Kokomo" was about Kokomo, Indiana.

I used to believe that song from the 70's "Doing it right on the wrong side of town" was about anal sex.

I asked my older sister what Eric Carmen meant when he sang "please baby go all the way" and she said it meant that he loved her so much he wanted her to go away, go all the way away.

I thought that the song "Kind of a Drag" was a long commercial for Canada Dry.

My grandmother used to sing me the Bushel and a Peck song and I thought she made it up for me....I had entirely forgotten that until I read Lucy's post here saying the same thing. Thanks Lucy!

I believed that "oldies" were a genre of music still being produced.

Around 1955, at the age of 10, I figured out how phonograph records worked. You dropped that needle, and the star in Hollywood jumped up to the microphone and started singing. As much as I loved Gene Autry, I used to torment him by jumping around on "Here Comes Santa Claus". Sorry, Gene.

I used to think that people could only sing about stuff that really happened to them. Not about things they made up, or stories from the past. I thought this for a disturbingly long time...

I seriously used to think that 'Don't cry for me, Argentina' was sung by Queen Elizabeth II. No-one told me this, I just knew it.

I used to believe the song "Smooth Operator" by Sade was about a surgeon who liked doing operations, and the song "Do you really want to hurt me" by Culture Club was about someone wanting to hit Boy george.

I saw a toy that looked like a TV but with mechanical shadow puppet things in it and played music from small record-like disks. I wondered if all records could be played on special record players and you could see the music as well as hear it.

When I was very little I used to believe that if you broke a record little people would come running out and if I was fast enough I could catch them and have my own little living dolls.
