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.

Every year for about 8 years now I've gone to my friend's shorehouse for a big party. Each year the party involves Meat Loaf's Bat out of Hell album being played, so I've known all the good Meat Loaf songs for years.

When I was about 8 (I'm 15 now) I thought that in "Paradise by the Dashboard Light" they were talking about a road trip when they said "We're gonna go all the way tonight" and that they got bored and started listening to a baseball game on the radio. It wasn't until I was about 13 that I figured out when the song was really about.

when I was little I used to think that the government little microphones in everybody's mouth so they could record songs that made up and hummed and sell them to music company's to turn them into real songs.

i used to think that people would make up songs in the shower, then someone else would come in random bathrooms and record it, then played it on the radio. for a long time i would make up songs and sing them as loud as i could hoping that someone would recerd mine, and play it on the radio station. (:

As a kid my brother would play creepy songs when I was in his room to make me get out. One day he played House of 1000 Corpses by Rob Zombie and he made me believe that the Jeffrey Dahmer police report at the beginning happened in our town, and that it would happen to me too if i didn't get out of his room. Lol, I would never stay in his room for too long.

When I was a kid I was a big fan of the Rolling Stones. I thought the song Mother's Little Helper was about a kid that helped his Mom. I always told my Mom I was her little helper, and of course they didn't tell me the true meaning of the song. It wasn't until I was in High School that I figured it out.

when i was little i used to believe that everytime you listened to the radio it was actually playing live. In a place at a specific time. and i thought that all the artists were best friends due to the fact that the next song came quickly. I was completely crushed because i found out that it wasnt true when i was listening to ''Try Again'' by Aaliyah. . .and before that it said that it was a dedication to Aaliyah

For a long time I thought the song "Roxanne," where it says "Put on the red light," had something to do with driving, especially because it is by the Police and police cars have red lights on them. Now, I listened closer to the first verse, and I think it's more like the red-light-district kind of red light...

My Dad told my sister and I that he made up the jingle for Pepsodent toothpaste....."You'll wonder where the yellow went when you brush your teeth with Pepsodent." We believed it for years and so did all our friends.

Before I knew anything much about cocktails, I wondered for years about who the Margarita was in Jimmy Buffett's song MARGARITAVILLE, and what made her famous enough to have a town named for her.

I believed that 'rock' as in music seriously meant an object formed naturally of stone. Rock. So when I heard "We Will Rock You" by Queen, I imagined Wile E. Coyote placing a huge red balancing rock over Road Runner on a cliff.


DUM DUM [CLAP] DUM DUM [CLAP] DUM DUM [CLAP]. Man I love that song...

I wasn't even a small child anymore (around 12-13?) when I used to believe that there was a woman with a very annoying high-pitched comic voice in The Smiths, because of the background singing in 'Bigmouth Strikes Again.'
(I later found out it's actually Morrissey's own altered voice.)
