I used to think that the people who put music on the internet (Napster, Kazaa, etc) had recorded it from their radios. They would sit and listen to the radio all day to find the one song they wanted, then recorded it with Sound Recorder in Windows.

When I was younger I got this purple cassestte/cd player. And finally got my first cd. Well, I thought everytime you put in a cassette or cd the singers would RUN to the recording studio to sing it live for you. Sometimes I felt bad about playing my music late at night or all night while I slept because I thought the people stayed there all night.

For some strange reason I believed that you had to be a female to be a singer.I guess this comes from my mother playing her guitar for me when I was a little boy.
When I was older and played guitar myself I desperately wanted to sing but wouldn't because of this.
It was when I was maybe 14 I realised that The Beatles and The Stones and Zeppelin weren't women so it would be ok if I sang.

I was born into a musical family, so I was raised on classical music and oldies. I had never really heard any music that was made past the 80s until I was 9. I thought that there wasn't any new music past 1985, and I grew up in the 90s!

I thought for a long time the singers of "My Boyfriend's Back" were black (don't know how it started...maybe because some singers sound alike to each other), until I saw a music commercial...

I used to think that in the real world, people would burst into song at pivotal moments in their life like in disney movies and musicals like "the King and I". I had never seen any adult do it, but when I was alone I would sing (badly) about how I felt.

from Denmark, so the spelling might not be correct...

that one day everybody would stop making music, because there's only 12 tones. Theres only so many ways you can combine 12 tones, I thought...

I was convinced that the person who sang and recorded a song was the writer of that song. I was very impressed to find out Kenny Rogers "wrote" a certain Christmas carol.

My father played a lot of Beatles music for me as a child. Until high school, I thought that the standard color for submarines was yellow, like school buses.

When I was like, 11, I really liked that Puddle of Mudd song "Blurry". My mom and I listened to it on the radio, and I must have asked her what it was about because I remember her saying "It's about a man who can't see his own son." A short while later, I saw the video. I went and asked my mom, "If the guy from that song is blind, wouldn't it be unsafe for him to throw the kid up in the air?" She was like, "What?"
It turns out that song is about not having custody of your kid after a divorce.
I took it to mean literally, he COULDN'T SEE his kid.
Whoops.

Dean Martin's "That's Amore" used to really confuse the heck out of me. Not the words themselves, but rather what they meant. Especially the verse that goes "When the moon hits your eye/like a big pizza pie..." It painted this bizzare picture in my mind that something would literally shoot out of the moon and fly into in your eye. The part about the 'pizza pie' made me think that "that something" was like a piece of pizza or a topping from a pizza such as a mushroom or slice of pepperoni.

I used to have a tape that I played over and over until everybody was sick of it. It was one of those silly song tapeswith goofy kids songs. There was a song that mentioned several types of food and had something that rhymed with it. It was crazy. One of the verses went like this:
Oh it's meat, meat, meat that knocks you of your feet.
So one day after playing that tape, we were having dinner. I was scared to death to take a bite of the meat. We were sitting in the floor around a coffee table in front of the TV, and I thought if I ate the meat, I would be lifted through the air and thrown to the other side of the room. My mom got so agravated trying to get me to understand that the people on the tape were not serious. I didn't like meat anyway, so when this happened, she thought it was because of the tape.

I used to believe that "No woman, no cry" by Bob Marley, meant that being single was the path to happiness instead of being words of comfort.

Until my vacation a few weeks ago, I thought that the new music was only played for a few weeks, then forgotten for something new. Because I only listen to the old songs, like The Beatles, Rolling Stones, etc. I really believed that it was no use to get attached to new music because after a year you'd never hear it again! ... I AM a bit stupid at times.

Until I was a teenager, I thought the song "Maneater" was about a cannabilistic woman. I pictured her looking like a demon with wild Medusa-like hair!

Watch out, boy! She'll chew you up!

I was pretty young when the song "Up Where We Belong" by Joe Cocker & Jennifer Warnes came out, & I remember asking my mom what it was about. She gave some vague explanation that I interpreted as if you are good enough, you get to pick a friend and go live inside the moon. It had lots of windows like a school bus, so you could look out & watch everybody back on Earth.
