Story about this misheard lyric by: Wisnu Aji: Finally, the song itself I posting here. With their orchestral formula, they are best known for having influence to other artists. For the lyrical content of this song, band member Justin Hayward wrote the last line of choruses as "Oh, how I love you" indicated that how Justin fell in love with a woman. However, when I hear this song, Justin doesn't sing "How" but jumping into the love letters as "Oh, I love you" indicated that Justin now fell in love with a woman. About this song: "Nights in White Satin" is a part of track #7, "The Night", featured on their second studio album, "Days of Future Passed", released on 10 November 1967. "Nights in White Satin" was written by Justin Hayward while the poem, "Late Lament", was written by Peter Knight and Graeme Edge and narrated by Mike Pinder. With its fusion of orchestral and rock elements, "Nights in White Satin" was one of the first progressive rock song ever to reaching the Top 20 internationally. When first released in 1967, this song reaching #19 on the UK Singles Chart and #103 on Billboard's Pop Chart in 1967. It was the first significant chart entry by the team since "Go Now" and its recent lineup change, in which Denny Laine had resigned and both Justin and John Lodge had joined. Upon its 1972 re-release, "Nights in White Satin" topping Cash Box's Pop Chart and Canada chart. The power ballad also reaching #2 on Billboard's Pop Chart and #8 on Australia chart. In the wake of its international success, this song charting again on the UK Singles Chart in late 1972 and climbing to #9. This song was released yet again in 1979, and charting for a third time on the UK Singles Chart, reaching #14. Since its success, this song was later covered by many artists. This song is also notable for its spoken-word poem, "Late Lament", narrated by keyboardist, Mike Pinder. The end of this song was ending coldly instead of fade-out with Mike Pinder playing gong at around 7 minutes and 5 seconds and lasting at 7 minutes and 38 seconds.
"Only the Lonely," Roy Orbison
Misheard Lyrics:

Original Lyrics:
Only the lonely know the way I feel tonight,
Story about this misheard lyric by: Louise Kush: Our family was going to church one Sunday and my dad had the radio on. When this song came on, he started yelling (which he was apt to do at any given moment) "Who the hell is Tony Baloney? What a stupid blank-blank song!" Explaining his mistake didn't help, and my siblings and I still bring this up when talking about our childhood memories!
