I used to beleive that when a woman and a man was singing duet on a song, they were actually singing to each other because they were going together.
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
When i was little my mom and my aunt told me that the song "The Macarena" was actually called Morgarena and that it was written for me...i believed them for a good 4 years. Its still a joke between them....haha very funny
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.)
That one song, with the 'Shaka khan, shaka kahn' chorus? I used to think that when I was alone in the room, the song would extend the chorus longer just to somehow 'get me'. I'd have to flee the room.
When I was 8, I loved (and still love to this day), the song "Lady Marmalade" by Pink, Missy elliott, christina agulera, maya, and lil kim. well, i never knew waht it was about. Well, one day I was interviewing my family at a reunion with a tape recorder, and as I walked around the house looking for someone to interview, I started singing it. So on the tape, you can hear me singing a little of it. oops!
My sister used to think the Al Green song Love & Happiness said Love will make you mess! She might have been on to something!
I saw my first band concert at age 8, and I thought the musicians were playing notes based on the motions of the conductor. I didn't realize they had sheet music! I was so fascinated with this arcane ability that I signed up for band the next year and learned to play the clarinet.
As a child, I didn't understand wat was being said by the first two lines of "We Three Kings". Now I understand how the awkward way the sentence "We three kings of Orient are bearing gifts." has the compound verb form "are bearing" broken up between two lines is the reason for the misunderstanding. The pause at the end of the first line made that line seem like a complete phrase. Consequently I envisioned that "Orient Are" was the name of some mystic and romantic land somewhere. The contemplation of that romantic land of "Orient Are" may just have embodied the most romantic enchanted vision associated with Christmas in my formative years, more romantic than the birth of Jesus, more romantic than Santa Claus, more romantic than any greenery of Christmas trees or holly or any colorful lights or decorations. I still have to remind myself of what the lines really say, or my mind surely still wanders to that mystic land of "Orient Are" in my annual revisiting of the most supreme enchantments that I long associated with Christmas.
My son's version of Jingle Bells: Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, jingle all the way! Oh thats one, it is to ride in a one horse open slave, hey!
... and We Wish You a Merry Christmas: We wish you was Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year
(he just turned 6!)
I used to think that the lyrics to the song were 'Hark, the HAROLD angels sing', not 'herald angels'. I wondered why the heck all of those angels were called 'Harold'.
