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.
When I was little, whenever I would listen to a radio, I thought that the band was playing the song live, from inside the radio.
Up until I was about seven years old, I believed that guitars were called "dox-a-dangs." My parents never corrected me. I had to learn the real name on my own.
This is weird, but as a little kid I would go to sleep with the radio on. I used to honestly believe that Phil Collins's "In The Air Tonight" would summon Bigfoot from the woods behind my house, and the only way to protect myself was to hide under the covers and stay motionless.
I used to believe the the Elton John song, "Crocodile Rock" was about a Crocodile, named Rock.
When I was little I thought when you played a CD somewhere the band would have to play the song and then i got confused that if while i was playing the song someone else would and the band wouldn't be able to do it
I couldn't understand how a record got to number one in the charts and believed that the Queen chose it, my husband still makes fun of me and does impressions of the queen announcing that Show Waddy Waddy were going to be number one today!
I am a big fan of the band Lynyrd Skynyrd. When my son got a little older, we had hin convinced for the longest time that when "Freebird" was playing on the radio you had to remain standing the ENTIRE time it was on. He finally caught on to it one day and said "Mom that cannot be true that you actually have to remain standing when that song is on" !. (smart kid !)
When I was kid, listening to Bon Jovi's, "Wanted Dead or Alive," I took the lyric "on a steel horse I ride" literally. I literally thought Jon Bon Jovi had a futuristic robot horse made out of metal, like one of my He-Man figures did.
I used to believe that music videos were the same as live performances of the songs.
My name is Roxanne, so I've had people singing the song by the police for as long as I can remember. I used to believe this song was written about me; Whilst my cousin, Adam, believed Adam's apples were named after him. We used to argue as to who had the best thing named after them.
I beleived that when you put the lid down on the record player that people came out to play the music and ran away when you lifted the lid. they were never there when I lifted the lid??
i used to believe that in the alanis morissette song jagged little pill it said "and the cross eyed bear" as opposed to " and the cross i bear"
