"Like a virgin, touched for the thirty-first time."

I doubt that this is how the lyric is usually heard, but it's pretty funny.

Back in the day, we use to sing "Don't Spill the Reefer" whenever Blue Oyster Cult came on the radio.

2. "Tiny Dancer" by Elton JohnMisheard Lyric: "Hold me closer, Tony Danza."
Actual Lyric: "Hold me closer, tiny dancer."


I prefer it as "Hold my clothes and tie me down, sir".

I've never got any of these wrong. I also do not know anyone who uses the term "mondegreen" for this issue.

The only one I had trouble with back in the day was Manfred Mann's Blinded by the Light.  Because it sounds like douche, and I wanted it to be douche.  And just so we're clear, there was a time when we only heard the word "douche" about once a month.
Also, I have no idea what 'revved up like a deuce' means.  Douche.

A "deuce" is also a slang term for a '32 Ford, historically a popular model among hot-rodders.  See also "Little Deuce Coupe".

I thought it was "Repped up like a douche, another roamer in the night".

But I have problems making out what they're singing by Verdi and Wagner too...

From Great White's Once Bitten, Twice Shy:
There's blood on my amp and my Les Paul's beat
Can't keep you home you're messin' around
My best friend told me you're the best lick in town

I sing:
There's blood on my ass and my Left ball's beat
Can't keep you home you're messin' around
My best friend told me you're the best lay in town

Also, from Depeche Mode's Master & Servant:
Domination's the name of the game
In bed or in life
They're both just the same

I sing:
Domination's the name of the game
You bet on your life
Then hope just the same

The only one of those I've (mis)heard was Blinded By The Light.

Now, Wide Awake by Katy Perry sounds weird to me, maybe because of the autotune (gah), but when she sings "God knows that I've tried finding the bright side" I hear side as 'sound', and 'castles crumbling' as 'counsels crumbling'.  Neither of which make any damn sense.  I dunno if it is the autotune abuse or what.  Just weird.

Another classic: "Carry a laser down this road that I must travel / Carry a laser on the Highway in the Night".  Don't know who did it, but I know that ain't the right line....

I sing "Hold me closer, Tony Danza" because it's a better song that way.

Was listening to Pour Some Sugar on Me today and I swore I heard something about a red I phone.

Also Ozzy has a song called Revelation Mother Earth and I still here him saying something about fighting dough nuts.

dillenger69: How come all the songs in the list are nearly 40 years old?


Because you could still understand a lot of the verses. Autotune and mumbling makes a lot of the more recent tunes not worth the effort to figure out what is being said.
