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.

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.

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.

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 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 used to think a woman sang Billy Joel's "Piano Man". Do this day I still think it sounds like a woman with a deep voice.

I used to believe that Christina Aguilera's song "Genie in a Bottle" was about an actual genie. It wasn't until I was about 12 that I listened again and got what the song was really about…

When I was in highschool a friend and I were singing along with the radio on a song called 'Skin to skin' She knew the words alright - 'lay down your arms and make up - but she started miming putting make up on - not making up from an arguement.

The Beatles song "Ticket to Ride....." When we were kids they would advertise on the radio win "Ticket to Ride....".....I was totally confused....I finally asked my mom where do they win tickets to? She explained it was a song! DUH!!!!

When I was 6 or 7, I used to think that the Hall & Oates song "Sara Smile" was written just for me....In my mind, there was no other explaination for the inclusion of the name "Sarah" into a song.

My littler girl (when she was 7) was listening to her big sister (who was 16)'s Eminem CD, when she called me over and said "look mommy the guy is making beeping noises!"

When I was a kid my mom would sing the song "Johnny Angel" to me. I thought she had made it up just for me. Until one day when I was 16 that song came on the radio. I could not believe it.

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.

When I was little, I used to believe that every song that ever existed was done by a different person, meaning no person did more than one song. That belief died when I started getting tapes of my very own.

I used to believe that Britney Spears' song "If U Seek Amy" was about a girl trying to find her lost best friend.

When I was little, when the band "Linkin Park" emerged, I thought that the radio said that they were playing a song from 'years and years ago'. Being a kid who only liked new songs, I would switch over whenever they'd play. When I heard 'It is love' on the radio regularly though, I was surprised because I thought it was an old song.

When I was a kid and the song "Date Rape" by Sublime came on the radio my dad would turn it off immediately. I didn't get why, so I asked my dad what it was about, and he just vaguely said "Someone doing inappropriate things on dates" (I guess he didn't want me to know what rape was since I was only like 8 at the time.) Anyway, because his description was so vague, I just thought it was about a guy with bad manners, and didn't get why he was so worried about me hearing it.

At the age of three I asked my grandmother who loved opera why the conductor guy on the tape thinger had bad hair. She said it was because he waved around his arm so much that it made wind that blew his hair around. I still believed this up until last week when I was told that otherwise!
