When I was little my sister told me that if I put a C.D. in the wrong case, it would mess up the C.D.'s songs.
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 that ecerytime you played a song,that the singer would have to actually sing it.I remember playing Spice Girls over and over one day ,and then I was like..."I better stop,I bet they are tired"
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.
Until about age 9, I thought there was a country called "Operaland" where everyone sang instead of talking.
I used to think that the line "just look over your shoulder" from Tarzan was "just a bottle of soda". I guess I was a little obsessed with caffeine...
I used to be scared of the song "Man-eater" because I thought it was literally about a woman who hunts down men and eats them.
When I was a child, I used to believe that every time I replayed a song, the artist/band was performing it for me personally..
The singer, Pink, has a song called "So What" which has the lyric "I'm gonna drink my money". Its music video has her drinking at that part. I thought she was swallowing dollar bills and coins!
When I saw a conductor leading an orchestra, I thought that every time they moved their hand, it represented a different note. I wanted to join the school orchestra, but I was worried that I wouldn't be able to remember which hand gesture stood for which note. Now I play the violin, and I am satisfied to know that I don't have to memorize hand gestures. :)
When I listened to the radio I thought the bands were at the station playing live. If I changed the station and heard the same band, I couldn't understand how they got to the other station so fast.
The first time I heard the word "pedestal" was in Anne Murray's song, "You Needed Me", in which she sings "You put me high upon a pedestal". For a long time I thought a pedestal was some kind of drug, and the line meant that somebody slipped her one and got her "high" on it.
I heard the song "Camp Grenada" by Allan Sherman (the one that goes "Hello Muddah, Hello Faddah, here I am at Camp Grenada"..) long before I ever heard the classic music it's based on: "Dance of the Hours". When I finally saw "Fantasia" I wondered what Hippos and Crocodiles had to do with camping!
When I was young, my mom listened to the oldies station on the radio a lot. I grew up believing that all the old songs were very recent. It didn't even occur to me until later that there other styles of music, and that the songs I'd heard weren't necessarily the most popular ones at the time.
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.
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 !)
I believed for a very long time that the Beatles were one of those bands that wrote for children. I loved "Octopuses Garden in the Shade." It took until four weeks ago, when I listened to all of Abbey Road.
I used to believe that when I listened to my Walkman, the bands were actually playing a live show for me. So I would pause and fast forward all the time, thinking that I was making the band work hard.
When I was 5 I liked listening to my kid songs CD in the car, and one of the songs I liked was called "Skip to My Lou", which I would sing as "Sing to My Jew". My mom would laugh whenever I sung it, and I never understood why since I had no idea what a "Jew" was yet. It was funny though
when i was a kid i didn't understand the concept of "recordings", so when i used to play my albums i thought they were all singing it live in a studio somewhere and it was being somehow beamed to my bedroom. Arthur Lowe (British actor) narrated my Mr Men tapes, i was about 5 when he died, and i cried because i thought i couldn't listen to them anymore, thats when my mum explained about recordings!!!
