Have you seen this commercial?
I LOVE that commercial.
During the first year of our marriage, David and I owned a daily tear-off calendar that was jam-packed with misheard song lyrics. Every day was a different song; on one side, you’d read what people thought the lyric was. On the other side was the correct lyric, and you’d see how far-off our understanding of popular music lyrics can be. It was hilarious. The calendar was called “Excuse me while I kiss this guy,” in homage to the oft-misheard lyric in Jimi Hendrix’ “Purple Haze.” It’s supposed to be “Excuse me while I kiss the sky.”
I think my favorite was CCR’s “Bad Moon Rising,” in which the line “there’s a bad moon on the rise” was misheard as “there’s a bathroom on the right.” There was also a rendition of “Tiny Dancer” where people thought it said “Hold me closer, Tony Danza….”
What song do you always get wrong?
