Up until I was about 8 or 9, I was convinced that, if you were a pop band, or any kind of band, ALL of your songs had to have roughly the same time signature. That was the rule! I guessed that bands split up most often because one or two of them wanted a change of sound. This belief probably arose since I was listening to The Spice Girls and such at the time, and their music doesn't exactly have a lot of variation.

Growing up I used to believe that the national anthem was a song for the Atlanta Braves. After all, the last line is "And the home of the Brave" and in Atlanta, they say "Braves". I didn't realize this until I went to a game in St. Louis and they were singing the song too. HOW DARE THEY!!!

I used to think that everytime you listen to music, such as on a CD, on a computer site, or on the radio, the artist would quickly rush to a studio and play it for you. I also thought that whenever you listened to music on a car radio or CD player, deep down inside the speakers were tiny little clones of the artist of the song you were listening to preforming the song.I was probably about four to six years old when I thought this.

I never knew that songs had names until I was about 9 or 10 years old. Until then, when I was talking about music, I'd say "hey, you know that song that goes--" and then I would sing the song, terrible and off-key. No wonder no one ever knew what I was talking about.

I used to listen to "the Nutcracker" Christmas music a lot. One of the songs made me envision a bouncy ball bouncing around the room. I used to chase the bouncy ball too, which my friends were scared of me.

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.
