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.

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.

I used to think that swing music was called that because you listened to it when playing on the swing set.

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.

The song "Daddies taking us to the zoo tomorrow" used to concern me a lot. How would daddy be able to manage us all by himself and did he know he was taking us all to the zoo tomorrow?
My cousins believed this song too and got very disappointed the next day when daddy didnt take us to the zoo

I believed that song lyrics had no meaning- they were just words strung together to fit the melody of the music. I thought this until I was about 7 or 8 and a friend's mom broke down the song "Candle in the Wind" to help me understand its meaning. Yes, the song was touching, but I was impressed that songs had 'meanings' at all!

I used to think that when people said 'That's music to my ears' that they couldn't hear what I was saying because they had switched a little radio on in their ears and were actually listening to music! I used to think that when you grew up you would have this special power to switch music on or off in your head by just thinking 'I want to listen to some music now'.

when I was little I used to think that the government little microphones in everybody's mouth so they could record songs that made up and hummed and sell them to music company's to turn them into real songs.

I used to listen to this song at school, and the lyrics were things like "Welcome back" and "We're proud of you". I thought it was about a girl (no idea why I specifically thought she was a girl) graduating a boarding high school, and it was sung by her parents.

Later, I learned that it was about welcoming soldiers back after a war, but I thought my version was better.

When I was little my mom playing the Rocky Horror Picture Show soundtrack all the time. I thought the song "Toucha Toucha Toucha Touch Me" was about playing in the mud with a wolf or soemthing (the " I wanna be dirty" bit) and always wondered why my dad looked so worried when I would make my toys dance along with it.

whenever my gran came to visit us, my mum would make us all sing that song "She'll be comin round the mountain when she comes..." or something along those lines (the song itself is a little vague.....:) ) and I used to think that this song was written about my granny and that she must be really famous. well, it was quite hilly where she came from....

When I was younger--a LOT younger--I would listen to my ACe of Base tape over and over again, but eventually felt bad about making the people sing the same songs repeatedly for hours inside the tape player.

When I was little, and heard the nurseryrhyme, "How much is That Doggy in the Window," I was especially taken by the verse, "with his ears cut short and tail cut long:" I assumed that a dog's ears were the equivalent of a human's hair, so one day I went to the hairdresser's and asked, "Can you cut my hair long?" My mum said it was possible befrore we went, but when the hell did she correct me for saying anything stupid like that? Not very much.
