"Whipping Post," The Allman Brothers Band
Misheard Lyrics:
I've been tell me, I've been just a fool.
I had to stand by and take it babe, all for loving you.
Original Lyrics:
My friends tell me, that I've been such a fool.
But I had to stand by and take it baby, all for loving you.
Story about this misheard lyric by: Wisnu Aji: Can you understand with the lyrics of this song? There are some modification on the lyrics of this song that I made to make Gregg Allman wonder why and think thrice to sing this song. About this song: "Whipping Post" is track #7 on their self-titled debut studio album released on 4 November 1969. It was written by Gregg Allman. This album that features "Whipping Post", "Dreams" (later become a name of a compilation album), and a cover of Spencer Davis' "Don't Want You No More", was just reaching #188 on Billboard's Pop Albums Chart. Despite this, this album received critical acclaim from listeners and music critics. While the original recording of "Whipping Post" was 5 minutes and 17 seconds, sometimes they performing this Blues Rock song in a live performance and creating a 22-minute rendition of this song. It was included on their unplugged album, "At Fillmore East", released in 1971. It was this recording that garnered "Whipping Post" spots on both the list of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll and Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. Because of its length, the unplugged version of "Whipping Post" received airplay from radio stations that playing Progressive Rock non-stop during the early 1970s, especially late at night or on weekends. Such airplay led to "Whipping Post" becoming one of their more familiar and popular songs to date before they have their biggest hit single, "Ramblin' Man", which was reaching #2 on Billboard's Pop Chart. On the 22-minute unplugged version of this song, I can hear the sound of applause but the music can't stop; the tympani keeps going and within seconds, the guitarists start up the mellow lead line to "Mountain Jam" as the record fades into the end grooves. Listeners would not hear that 33-minute continuation until "Eat a Peach" was released in 1972. "Whipping Post" originally was a power ballad, but they creating this song made more Hard-Rocker again than anymore with Gregg Allman singing its climax during choruses and continued with Duane Allman playing his signature guitar solo during the break section of this song.
"Little Deuce Coupe," The Beach Boys
Misheard Lyrics:
I got the pink slip, Daddy.
Original Lyrics:
I got a big-slip Daddy
Story about this misheard lyric by: David: The phrase "big slip" is a reference to a clutch used by drag racer Don Garlits who gained the nickname Big Daddy. The special clutch was called a "Big Slip". The whole Little Deuce Coupe is about what engine and other special equipment they've got in the car. Obviously he's got the pink slip if it's his car!. Now there are also some who claim the term "big slip" refers to a posi-traction rear differential but that's not correct. Look up some history on Big Daddy Don Garlits and you'll understand what a big-slip clutch was.

"Everytime You Go Away," Paul Young
Misheard Lyrics:
Every time you go away.
You take a piece of meat with you.
Original Lyrics:
Every time you go away.
You take a piece of me with you.
Story about this misheard lyric by: Wisnu Aji: So many posts of the song "Everytime You Go Away" are misheard as "meat". Many listeners wrote the title of this song as "Every Time You Go Away" as also sung that title by Paul himself. But, the original title of this song is "Everytime You Go Away". About this song: "Everytime You Go Away" is track #2 on his second studio album, "The Secret of Association", released on 25 March 1985. It was written by Daryl Hall. Originally recorded by Daryl Hall and John Oates from their album, "Voices", released in 1980 but was not released as a single, Paul version of this song finally released as a single and topping Billboard's Pop Chart. The Soft Rock power ballad was also reaching the Top 40 internationally including the UK Singles Chart where it reaching #4 there. Making it Paul's biggest hit song to date.
