Mishear the words of songs

Isn't it odd how you can mishear the words of songs. I used to think that "Your the one that I want" by John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John was the "Your the wizard of oz" because they sang it very fast. "Loveshack" by the B-52's was "Loveshag". I also used to think that the line "Feel like the one" in "Dakota" by the Stereophonics was "Feel like the worm".

I used to think "Bad Moon on the rise", a line out of "Bad Moon Rising" by Creedence Clearwater Revival was called "Bad Moon on the right". I used to believe that the Brotherhood Of Man song "Save all your kisses for me" was sung as "Save all your kippers for tea". I was under the opinion that "Imagine" by John Lennon had a line "Imagine all the people living by the sea", when it was really "Living life in peace".

Last Saturday night, I went to a musical called "Mercury". I never got to see Queen live, so a musical is the next best thing. I was, and still am, a fan of their music. For me, Freddie Mercury had one of the best singing voices in music. It is impossible to take Freddie Mercury off. His singing voice was unique and there will never be anybody like that again. However, the guy came the closest I have ever heard, and at times, if I shut my eyes, it was impossible to tell the difference. This is their website... http://www.mercuryqueentribute.co.uk/mercury/

I always thought that song "Dragging a Line" was really "taking a ride."

The likeness of "rise" and "right" in sound was used to effect by Morrissey. In the song Interesting Drug the opening line is "There are some bad people on the rise" but in the video the boys write graffiti on the wall as "There are some bad people on the right".
