Misheard Lyrics Stories -> Latest Entries

"Believe," Cher
Misheard Lyrics:
Do you believe in love that is love?
Original Lyrics:
Do you believe in life after love?
Story about this misheard lyric by: Jake B: Looking back, what I thought makes absolutely no sense, but I was 10 when this song was released. It wasn't until many years later when my mom and I were binge-watching Gilmore Girls, and there was an episode where Lorelei was hosting a dinner at her inn, and at one point they're discussing Cher, and Lorelei says "The year of 'do you believe in life after love?'." I had to pause the episode, looked to my mother, and yelled OH MY GOD.
"Le Freak," Chic
Misheard Lyrics:
Said she
Said Chic
Original Lyrics:
C'est Chic
Story about this misheard lyric by: Cody Finke: I was a little hearing on "Said she" or "Said Chic" when it was actually French.
"Who Are You?," The Who
Misheard Lyrics:
I want my penis so hard, no way
A policeman knew my name.
Original Lyrics:
I woke up in a Soho doorway.
A policeman knew my name.
Story about this misheard lyric by: Karen Smith: When I checked this song on YouTube, I misheard the opening lines as quoted above. I was checking it because I heard a preacher claim that somehow this song was involved in his inspiration for his Sunday sermon. Needless to say, I was astonished that a song that started out the way I heard the first line would provide inspiration for a sermon, or astonished AT LEAST that the preacher would ADMIT that that was the case. On looking up the real lyrics, I still don't know what connection the song really has to the sermon.
"Who Are You?," The Who
Misheard Lyrics:
I felt a little like a dying hound
Went to stick-up Rin Tin Tin.
Original Lyrics:
I felt a little like a dying clown
With a streak of Rin Tin Tin.
Story about this misheard lyric by: Karen Smith: I'd heard this song but not paid too much attention to it, and not recognized it as by the Who, though I was much more familiar with them, by some of their other songs. Then I heard a Sunday sermon in which the preacher said he'd thought of this in considering his sermon and the words were still ringing through his ears. I went home and listened to the song on YouTube. I still can't imagine what connection the song has to his sermon. But on listening to it I first heard the lines quoted above as my cited misheard version. On looking up the real lyrics, I expected somehow that the reference to Rin Tin Tin would be the part I most misheard. But surprisingly Rin Tin Tin is in the actual lyrics!
