Misheard Lyrics Stories:

"Lean on Me"
Misheard Lyrics:
Lead somebody to Reno
Original Lyrics:
Need somebody to lean on

Story about this misheard lyric by: Emmanuel Allison

As a child back in the 1980's in inland northern California, this made perfect sense to me. I knew a lot of religious zealots who talked about the day of judgement and all of that, though I knew nothing about religion myself, and Reno was a place lots of local people went on vacations and came back with wild stories about, so when I heard a song about how "it won't be long till I'm gonna lead somebody to Reno" and "we'll all lead somebody to Reno" I just figured it was a religious message about salvation.

While repetitive, its a groovy, smooth, funky, yet romantic song but... one verse and multiply repeated verse? It's funny.
