We all have those songs that we sing along to confidently. Then one day, usually in a very public and embarrassing way, we find out we've been singing it WRONG. Here are a few examples, both from our own experience and from our friends'.
Urgent, Urgent or Virgin, Virgin?
Our Lips Are Sealed or Honest, Lucille?
Your Body is a Wonderland or Bounteous Wonderland?
Chuck E's in Love or Truck Gears in Low? (skip to 1:27 - really, who can understand anything she's singing?)
Every Breath You Take- until very recently I always thought it was "I'm a cool, hard/pool hall ace" instead of "My poor heart aches" - please tell me I'm not the only one.
And of course no list would be complete without Manfred Mann's Blinded by the Light (self-explanatory)
And then there was the time I went to a Crosby, Stills, Nash concert and thought this song
was going to be this song
I really got those lyrics wrong - and wow, was it ever public and embarrassing.
How about you? Have you had any Lyrical Dyslexia?
