i used to think that people would make up songs in the shower, then someone else would come in random bathrooms and record it, then played it on the radio. for a long time i would make up songs and sing them as loud as i could hoping that someone would recerd mine, and play it on the radio station. (:

In the song "Walking in a Winter Wonderland" they pretend that the snowman is Parson Brown. I didn't know what a Parson was, so I assumed parson described a shade of brown. I couldn't figure why anyone would pretend a snowman was brown. I was even more confused as to why a brown snowman would care if a person was married. I thought it was the most senseless Christmas song in the universe.

when i was little i used to believe that everytime you listened to the radio it was actually playing live. In a place at a specific time. and i thought that all the artists were best friends due to the fact that the next song came quickly. I was completely crushed because i found out that it wasnt true when i was listening to ''Try Again'' by Aaliyah. . .and before that it said that it was a dedication to Aaliyah

I remember when I was about 4 there would be this song on Barney. It was on a bunch of other shows, but I remember seeing this one first.

"Down by the bay where the watermelons grow, back to my home i dare not go. for if i do my mother will say. "Would you ever see a bear combing his hair down by the bay"

i remember being scared to DEATH of watermelons because of that. i saw the barney music video and they just flashed watermelons like ONCE, but i was SCARED. i have no idea why i was afraid of the watermelons, but i remember it alright!

I got a sound recorder thing and one time, when I was little, used it and sang into it. Afterwards, I was very embarrassed if anyone heard me sing, so I unravelled the cassette and threw it out. Then, I feared that the government would find the cassette in the junkyard, put it back together, listen to it and find out who made it. I was scared to death and embarrassed.

When I was little I couldn't understand how my friends would know which 45 records to buy at the store. I asked them did the store let you listen to them before you bought them? It didn't occur to me that they bought songs they had heard on the radio, because we weren't allowed to listen to the radio.

I was such a sheltered kid.

I used to think that the lyrics to the song were 'Hark, the HAROLD angels sing', not 'herald angels'. I wondered why the heck all of those angels were called 'Harold'.

I couldn't understand how a record got to number one in the charts and believed that the Queen chose it, my husband still makes fun of me and does impressions of the queen announcing that Show Waddy Waddy were going to be number one today!

When I was about 6, I thought that when a song fades out, the effect is created by the band performing on the back of a truck, which then drives away from the microphone.

I was also highly confused by songs which had the same person's vocals played over the top of each other, wondering how the hell it was possible to sing two things at the same time. When my mum told me that it was done by a mixer, I imagined a mixer to resemble a big washing machine.

When I was five, I thought the band 'Red Hot Chili Peppers' were actual peppers that sang. So everytime I saw a pepper, I would sing one of their songs and pretend that they were too shy to sing at that moment.

I used to think that people could only sing about stuff that really happened to them. Not about things they made up, or stories from the past. I thought this for a disturbingly long time...

My dad has always been a clever and imaginative guy. When my brother and I were around 7 or 8 years old, we were riding in the back seat of the car. My dad in the driver's seat started singing, "Wellllll, who put the bop in the bop-she-bop-she-bop, who put the ram in the ram-a-lam-a-ding-dong...." My brother and I just thought that Daddy was the weirdest human being ever for inventing such a silly song as that. And no matter what he or my mother in the front seat of the car said, they could not convince us any differently. It wasn't until at least a couple of years later (maybe more?) that I finally heard the song on the radio and it dawned on me. I stood there for a full two minutes, dumbfounded that it's actually a REAL song!

I used to believe that 'heavy metal' meant the musical instruments were literally heavier than usual because they were made of steel or something.

My older sisters loved Gloria Estefan when I was little. One of their favorite songs to play was "Rhythm is Gonna Get You." I was terrified, because I didn't know what rhythm was, and I didn't want it to get me when I turn out all the lights!

I thought God drove a car like ours - a Honda. The song DID say "fill the heavens with sweet Accords..."

In the song "Home On The Range" I could never figure out why the word 'seldom' would be heard as a discouraging word.
