We all know how easy it can be to think that song lyrics are something they're not, especially rock songs with lots of distortion and slurred vocal styles! My all time favourites are the following: 1) Idlewild - When I Argue I See Shapes REAL LYRIC: When I argue, sit back it makes me laugh MISINTERPRETATION: When I argue Sid Barrett makes me laugh 2) Manic Street Preachers - The Masses Against the Classes REAL LYRIC: The masses against the classes/I'm tired of giving a reason/When the future is what we believe in MISINTERPRETATION (mine): No more sex against the classes/I'm tired of giving an income/A refridgerator's what we believe in 3) The Who - Boris the Spider REAL LYRIC: Boris the Spider MISINTERPRETATION (mine): Sorry Mr Spider (bit thick of me as this was the title - luckily I noticed it on the back of the CD before I showed my ignorance by singing along to it as that, and having to pretend I was just pissing about). 4) Sex Pistols - Anarchy in the UK REAL LYRIC: I wanna destroy a passerby MISINTERPRETATION (ex-boyfriend): I wanna destroy a power supply 5) X Ray Spex - I Live Off You REAL LYRIC: See we gotta be exploited MISINTERPRETATION (my brother): See we gotta be a fried egg 6) Green Day - X-Kid REAL LYRIC: Probably would but hardly would instead I'm gone MISINTERPRETATION (mine): Probably would but Hollywood is dead and gone 7) The Damned - Lively Arts REAL LYRIC: It's gonna be a life of style for me MISINTERPRETATION (mine): It's gonna be a life of scaffolding Please contribute your own, the weirder and more hilarious the better!
A lot of us enjoy singing along to those pop songs we hear on the radio. Sometimes we don't always know all of the words and we either fudge it or sing the words that we think we hear. Others of us change some of the lyrics just a bit to suit our dimented senses of humor. I know I have ruined a whole host of songs over the years this way, but my favorite has to be from R.E.M. It goes something like this... There I am, in the back seat, losing my virginity Just sayin...
