I didn't realize 'K-I-S-S-I-N-G-' in 'Robby and Mary- et cetra- sitting in a tree' spelled Kissing until a year ago ^-^ I thought they just put a couple of letters together to make the song longer.
When I was about 6 years old, I asked a "friend" what the verse "you'll go down in history" in "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" meant. He told me that "history" was a place where they cut the heads off of reindeer!
From then on, I was sad every time I heard that song.
I used to think that the Police song, Roxanne, was about traffic lights.
I was about 14 when I figured it out.
Until I was about nine or ten, I believed that the famous Beethoven piece "Fur Elise" was called "Fury Lice" I always wondered why Beethoven wrote a song for lice... and then I figured it was because he lived in the old days in Europe.. and that lice were so common, that it was the equivelent of writing a song about love... haha
You know the Beach Boys' song "Surfin' in the U.S.A."? Well, I knew lived in America, but I used to wish that I lived in the USA "instead" so that I could go surfing.
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.
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.
I used to believe the the Elton John song, "Crocodile Rock" was about a Crocodile, named Rock.
When I was a little kid, I liked listening to a song called "The Yodeler" while riding in the car. One lyric was "When he met with an avalanche interrupting his cry". I thought that an avalanche was a type of animal, like a bear or squirrel. I also thought that the part "Once an Austrian went yodeling" was "Once an ostrich went yodeling" and I would picture an ostrich walking across a nature trail to the mountains.
This isn't a belief, but an amusing old irrational fear... when I was around 5-6 years old, I was TERRIFIED of the music that would play in the castle levels of Super Mario Bros. (1-4, 2-4, etc.) The bass would make the speakers on my TV vibrate. I used to get all the way up to Level 8-3 using warp zones, then reset the game and play over again. I got so upset when a guest at my house didn't use a warp zone that I ran into my room, cried hysterically, and vomited.
I used to believe The Beatles sang "Hey Hey, were' the Monkey's".
I used to think that singers couldn't talk-they could only communicate by singing.
When I first heard the early 80's song entitled "Every Time You Go Away You Take a Piece of Me with You" I took it literally. I was 3 and I really thought it was a guy singing about a person who took different body parts of his away with them every time they left. It confused me for a long time.
in the movie "grease" when they sing the song "look at me i'm sandra dee," there's a line that goes "won't go to bed 'til i'm legally wed." well, being an innocent young child, i used to think this line meant that sandra dee was really determined to get married, and that she would not rest until she was. oh, youth.
When I was younger my sister told me she was allergic to country music so she wouldn't have to listen to me play it and I completely believed her. I actually thought you could be allergic to a certain kind of music! Later that day I went through a bunch of records to see if I was allergic to any kind of music.
When I was in elementary school about 45 years ago, the class sang Christmas songs. Being Jewish, I didn't know what these songs were about--I just tried to sing them with the rest of the kids. When they sang, Oh Tannenbaum, I thought everyone was singing about my relatives, the Tenenbaums. When everyone was singing "Hark the Herald Angels Sing," I was really wondering if it was about my Uncle Harold or my Cousin Harold Tenenbaum.
i used to believe thay ''i'm so excited' by the pointer sisters was the most famous song in the world and everybody knew the words except me.
When I was very little I used to believe that if you broke a record little people would come running out and if I was fast enough I could catch them and have my own little living dolls.
I used to think the conductor of the orchestra actually told the band what notes to play by waving the stick in a certain direction. I always wanted to stand up before an orchestra and wave the stick around to see what kind of music I could make!
I used to believe that an 'air guitar' was another word for a banjo. I have no idea why I believed this, but it led to much confusion whenever my family and I saw someone busking on the street with a banjo.
