Misheard Lyrics Stories:

"Love Is a Stranger"
Misheard Lyrics:
Love is a stranger
In another land
Original Lyrics:
Love is a stranger
In an open car

Story about this misheard lyric by: Rebecca

I admit "an open car" doesn't look as if it could be misheard as "another land" but I first heard this song when I was very young and I guess what I heard then must have "stuck" in my brain (perhaps I was thinking of that Bible verse about a stranger in a strange land?)

Funniest Song Lyrics:

Misrhymed Song Lyrics:

"Sweet Dreams"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
Sweet dreams are made of this
Who am I to disagree?
Why They're Misrhymed:
Annie really forces the 'this' into 'theees' -- I always thought it was 'these' and found it weird that she would refer to her breasts like that.
Submitted by: Charles Savoie

Inappropriate Song Lyrics:

"You Placed A Chill In My Heart"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
Take me to the desert, take me to the sand
Show me the colour of your right hand
Why They're Inappropriate:
While the chorus (and title) points to hate and fear in a love relationship, the verses on the other hand sound like random psychotic rants about Annie Lennox's strange fixations and have nothing to do with anything else in the song, like this. Firstly, isn't it just going a bit overboard travelling all the way to a desert just to see some sand? Ever heard of a beach, Annie? Secondly, has she got some fetish with differently coloured right hands? And surely she can hazard a guess of the colour just by looking at the person anyway?

Dirty Song Lyrics:

"Sweet Dreams"
The Dirty Lyrics:
Some of them want to use you
Some of them want to be used by you
Some of them want to abuse you
Some of them want to be abused
(Elsewhere in the song..)
Have your head up! (Movin' on)
Keep your head up! (Movin' on)
Why They're Dirty:
Sounds like a BDSM fetish to me.
