Story about this misheard lyric by: miss bad example

This was my mate J who misheard this. It came up in conversation in about 2004 when we were talking about the Goodness Gracious Me parody called Hindi People and I said "I've never been able to listen to Common People in the same way again". J said something along the lines of "What song's that then?" which struck me as being odd as Common People had been around for about ten years by this point, and it's not like it's underplayed... So after a few minutes of "you know Common People"/"no I don't" I decided to sing it, and J looked at me with a look of utter horror, then admitted he'd been hearing it as "I wanna live like coloured people". For TEN years. Then he said something like "I wondered how they'd gotten away with playing such a racist sounding song for so long"! Apparently listening to DJs introducing song titles (or indeed the lyrics of songs) is not something he deems important...

Disco me up in the year 2000

Song Title Space Change:

"Sorted 'Fore Sand Wizz" originally "Sorted for E's and Wizz"
Submitted by: Ron N. O'Connor

Songs That Are Banned:

"Sorted For E's And Wizz"
Banned by the BBC in 1997 because of it's references to rave drugs (despite the fact that they are mentioned in a negative context). The band also drew flack for an insert in the single, which featured instructions on how to make a paper wallet to store drugs in. The single still managed to hit #2 in the UK .
