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.

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.

I guess this can be put among the make-believe-s, but couldn't actually find a proper place for it.
You know that elderly believe in so much funny stuff and they get terribly worried when you wouldn't follow their "valuable" advice.
When I was at late kindergarten age I was often told by my grany that I shouldn't sing while having a meal - the cause of that would be my getting married to a man who often gets drunk... That was making me remain silent till the end of our meal, because I didn't want to feel guilty if my husband were an alcoholic.
What a way to shut my mouth up!

When I was little my sister told me that if I put a C.D. in the wrong case, it would mess up the C.D.'s songs.

When I was a kid, I was obsessed with the TV show Alf. Once, they showed an episode where Alf was lip-syncing "Old Time Rock and Roll" into a cucumber. After that, whenever I heard that song on the radio, I'd get all excited because it was Alf singing.

It took my parents months to convince me that it was really some guy named Bob Seger singing it.

As a kid my brother would play creepy songs when I was in his room to make me get out. One day he played House of 1000 Corpses by Rob Zombie and he made me believe that the Jeffrey Dahmer police report at the beginning happened in our town, and that it would happen to me too if i didn't get out of his room. Lol, I would never stay in his room for too long.

Until about age 9, I thought there was a country called "Operaland" where everyone sang instead of talking.

I used to think that the line "just look over your shoulder" from Tarzan was "just a bottle of soda". I guess I was a little obsessed with caffeine...

I used to be scared of the song "Man-eater" because I thought it was literally about a woman who hunts down men and eats them.

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.

When I saw a conductor leading an orchestra, I thought that every time they moved their hand, it represented a different note. I wanted to join the school orchestra, but I was worried that I wouldn't be able to remember which hand gesture stood for which note. Now I play the violin, and I am satisfied to know that I don't have to memorize hand gestures. :)

When I listened to the radio I thought the bands were at the station playing live. If I changed the station and heard the same band, I couldn't understand how they got to the other station so fast.

The first time I heard the word "pedestal" was in Anne Murray's song, "You Needed Me", in which she sings "You put me high upon a pedestal". For a long time I thought a pedestal was some kind of drug, and the line meant that somebody slipped her one and got her "high" on it.
