I used to believe that the song Hotel California by The Eagles was meant to be taken literally as a story about a resort. I was particularly fixated on the lyric "You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave." I took this to mean that, you could check out, but then you had to sit around the lobby (with your luggage) for the rest of your life.

The song "Daddies taking us to the zoo tomorrow" used to concern me a lot. How would daddy be able to manage us all by himself and did he know he was taking us all to the zoo tomorrow?
My cousins believed this song too and got very disappointed the next day when daddy didnt take us to the zoo

When I was a kid, I was obsessed with the TV show Alf. Once, they showed an episode where Alf was lip-syncing "Old Time Rock and Roll" into a cucumber. After that, whenever I heard that song on the radio, I'd get all excited because it was Alf singing.

It took my parents months to convince me that it was really some guy named Bob Seger singing it.

I used to think Chevy Chase sang that "You Can Call Me Al Song" but it really just looked that way in the cideo. In reality it was the little guy playing the instruments who actually sang it, Paul Simon. Don't I feel dumb.

I used to believe that when the orchestra was tuning up before a performance, the conductor was giving them a minute to "misbehave" before they had to follow the sheet music.

When my parents sang along with music and they made a mistake. My parents would say, "oops, the singer mess up the lyrics again." I believed them.

When I was little (4 or 5) I was scared of thunder, no biggy most kids are right? But then my uncle got a Garth Boorks tape and would play Thunder Rolls, I thought he had a thunder storm in his room and I had to save him. So I would spend the whole song banging on the door tell him he had to get out!!

Now I love that song

when I was a kid in the 90s there was this song that went "Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thrusday, Friday, Saturday, EEE-ven on Sunday...every day of the week." I though that song was meant to teach kids the days of the week and when my kindergarten teacher asked us if we had ever heard a song about the days of the week, I proudly sang that song.

OK, so yeah. My teacher had to explain some stuff to me.

Back when no one knew what an mp3 even was, i had alot of cd's, and you know how when you buy a new cd, you tend to listen to it alot? well that's what i'd do, but then i'd feel guilty, because i was neglecting my other cd's, so i'd listen to them next, one by one. i felt like they were sad i "replaced" them, and i had to make sure they were all happy, and not jealous of my new cd.

I used to believe until I was probably thirteen that the Ace of Base song "Don't Turn Around" was about a witch and her captive slave. I never really understood the lyrics and never bothered looking them up. Every time I heard the song in a store or on the radio, I would cry because the witch I had in my head was scary. I eventually realized what the song meant and I don't cry anymore. In fact, I enjoy the song.

I used to think that, since 'The Christmas Song' was the 'official' Christmas song, then I figured that 'The Hanaka[sp?] Song' by Adam Sandler was the official Hanaka[sp?] song.

I used to wonder how bands and orchestras knew how to play music for vocalists (I didn't understand that performances were prepared because it appeared to me that the singer spontaneously started breaking into song and the musicians were able to figure out how to play for him/her).

When I first heard the song "Your Nose is gonna grow" I actually thought a girl sang it. (it was on a record called 'wacky weirdos" and the artist names weren't mentioned). I learned that it was sung by Johnny Crawford only a year ago. I didn't pay attention to the lyrics before but now I do and laugh at them for Ex.."I saw you late last night/you were holding that other boy tight" And I thought it was a girl singing it about her boyfriend not a guy singing about his girlfriend. LOL still love to play it today and pretend it's a girl. He sure sounded like one.

The first time I ever heard a harmonica was on Black Sabbath's debut album on the song entitled
"the Wizard" My brother told me the harmonica on the song was actually a ghost on the record. I was about 4 years old. Now at 38, the song still creeps me out (the cover was pretty scary too). And any song I hear with a harmonica similar to it reminds me of "the ghost" and the "witch woman"on the album cover. Good one brother.

The first time i heard "I Want Candy" by Aaron Carter, I thought it was sung by a girl, and that she really really wanted some candy!

As a kid I'd never heard the word "accord" before when I first heard it in the last verse of "The First Noel", in the lines:

Now let us all with one accord
Sing praises to our heavenly Lord.

The only guess I could then come up with for the meaning of "accord" was that it might be short for "accordion". I thought that a neat image, singing Christmas songs with accordion accompanyment. But I puzzled as to why it said "one accord", as if something would be wrong with Christmas singing to the accompanyment of more than one accordion. Perhaps accordions are loud enough that two would drown out the singing, I thought.

I have been Pokemon-obsessed since I was six and I still am. When I was seven my mom used to play this tape of 80's music and I became convinced that all the songs were sung by Pokemon, and I would imagine what Pokemon were singing it and give the groups all Pokemon names. Because of this I kept begging my parents to put the tape in whenever we got in the car (it annoyed them after a while). Eventually the tape got lost.
