Misheard Lyrics Stories:

"Moonlight Shadow "
Misheard Lyrics:
But she couldn't find Hannibal Schtroes
Original Lyrics:
But she couldn't find how to push through

Story about this misheard lyric by: Suzanne

Growing up, as a Dutch girl, loving music and singing along, I kept wondering who this Hannibal Schtroes could be... It could be the man in the moon, 'in the moonlight shadow' Could be a handsome man... Till I got older and learned the English language. Then I understood she wasn't looking for Hannibal. Little disappointing, I have to say!

"Ommadawn"
The Lyrics:
Ab yul ann I dyad awt en yab na log a toc na awd taw may on ommadawn egg kyowl ommadawn egg kyowl ...
Why:
These Gaelic words are chanted by Clodagh Symonds near the end of side 1 of this beatiful suite from the composer of "Tubular Bells" (which some foks know as the theme from The Exorcist).
The translated lyrics basically are: "The cat is in the kitchen, drinking milk...I am a fool with music..."

Hidden Messages:

"Amarok"
48 minutes into the song there is a Morse Code message played on guitar. Translated into English this says, "F*** off RB". He put this in there because the album was released shortly after he'd left Virgin Records, where Richard Branson (RB) was chief.
