"The Reason," Hoobastank
Misheard Lyrics:
Another perfect person.
There's many things I wish I didn't go.
But I continue learning.I never meant to do those things to you.
Original Lyrics:
I'm not a perfect person.
There's many things I wish I didn't do.
But I continue learning.I never meant to do those things to you.
Story about this misheard lyric by: Wisnu Aji: Can you feel if there is a perfect person beside them? Seemly, it was yes. However, the original lyrics of this song say that Doug Robb, lead singer of this band, was not a perfect person. Also, according to Doug Robb, the lyrics of several songs from the album, "The Reason", are about questioning what you are told. So, it was more friendly on Pop radio stations although they are in the line of Puddle of Mudd, Nickelback, 3 Doors Down, and Default, which was cited by listeners as Post-Grunge, Alternative Rock, and Alternative Metal. About this song: "The Reason" is track #8 on their second studio album, "The Reason", released on 9 December 2003. It was co-written by Chris Hesse, Dan Estrin, and Markku Lappalainen. It received well internationally with reaching #2 on Billboard's Pop Chart and #12 on the UK Singles Chart. Making them their biggest hit single to date.

"Strip It Down," Luke Bryan
Misheard Lyrics:
Everything I need and some wine and cottage cheese
Original Lyrics:
Everything I need in them white cotton sheets
Story about this misheard lyric by: babicheeks999: The first time I heard this song, this is what I thought Luke Bryan was singing. I knew that people have wine and cheese when they are being romantic, usually not cottage cheese though I didn't think. The second time I heard the song, I realised he was saying white cotton sheets which makes more sense.
"Raspberry Beret," Prince

Brass spherical bed, the kind you find in a second hand store
