I used to think that singers would go to a big building fild with cd's that had backround music on it and then they would pick one. Then put the tape on whenever they sang.
my mom and dad used to tell me if i listened to any music promoting violence or harsh language, that whatever they're talking about in the song i'm listening to, that same thing would happen to me!
I always used to listen to Journey when i was a kid and i had their greatest hits tape. and you kno how songs like fade out when your listenin to the tapes.. well i was like 6 and i was like "mom! mom! i know how they do that! the keep playin quieter and quieter until you cant hear them anymore!" and she's just like "thats right honey", i didnt realize what actually happened until i was about 14
i used to believe the song, "you are my sunshine" was a song my mom had made up just for me. i'm 26 now and it was just a year or two ago that i heard the song sung by some one other than my mom and found out she didn't write it for 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 saw my first band concert at age 8, and I thought the musicians were playing notes based on the motions of the conductor. I didn't realize they had sheet music! I was so fascinated with this arcane ability that I signed up for band the next year and learned to play the clarinet.
Around 1955, at the age of 10, I figured out how phonograph records worked. You dropped that needle, and the star in Hollywood jumped up to the microphone and started singing. As much as I loved Gene Autry, I used to torment him by jumping around on "Here Comes Santa Claus". Sorry, Gene.
when i was little, i asked my mom what rap music was, and she told me it was when people added extra words to a song. so i would try to make "raps" by singing the songs i knew (mary had a little lamb, etc) and adding extra words in the middle. it never sounded quite right...
I used to think that the drums was played several people on the same set; that each one will play on one drum only. Now that i play the drums, i just laugh about it. Imagine seven people playing on one set at the same time, they probably will have to sit on top of each other. Good thing that no one has to sit on top of me!!
When I was little my older brother would listen to the song "Iron Man". In the beginning of the song, a metallic voice says "I.. AM... IRON MAN!" That freaked me out so bad... I always envisioned a huge metal robot crashing through the window and killing me.
I used to believe that all songs were exactly a half-hour long.
My house was near the high school, and on Friday nights, the band would play marching songs very loud.
My older brother told me that was the German Army marching toward the house. Even today, "25 or 6 to 4" by Chicago gives me the willies.
This is weird, but as a little kid I would go to sleep with the radio on. I used to honestly believe that Phil Collins's "In The Air Tonight" would summon Bigfoot from the woods behind my house, and the only way to protect myself was to hide under the covers and stay motionless.
When I was a child, I used to believe I was really really good at singing. One day, a friend of mine said "You're tone-deaf!". Hard times!
I remember waiting to leave the house for playschool and the sun was streaming in through the window. The radio was on playing some really syrupy easy-listening music (probably BBC radio 2) and my dad had a really good hi-fi. It sounded amazing, and I believed that it was the rays of sunlight that was making the sound of violins...... I can still remember it vividly.
The song that went D-I-S-C-O, she is D-I-S-C-O then it would go she is D, delirious, she is I, incredible............ well when it came to the O bit i always used to sing OR-OR-ORANGE cos i felt sorry that they hadnt bothered thinking of something to sing for the O. i still sing it now and i'm 28. haha
When I was little I would go to symphonies with my parents. When the orchestra would tune their instruments I thought it was a song that you HAD to play before every show. Turns out it's not a song and it's a good thing to tune.
when i listend bryan adams "summerof '69" the first time, i thought the lyrics was like "..... get my first real sex dream", but naturally it means "...........get my first real six-string"
I used to believe that when you heard a song on the radio, the only person who knew how to play it was the person who wrote it. It blew my mind when I heard my first cover band at a wedding when I was 10!
By the time I was nine, I firmly believed I already knew every Christmas song in existence. I was completely blown away when I found out that there were even more out there that I'd never heard of.
