"Rage," Heart
Misheard Lyrics:
Pleasant black cold concrete
Original Lyrics:
Flesh and blood and cold concrete
Story about this misheard lyric by: Karen Smith: I was listening to the album "Desire Walks On". I originally heard this line in the song "Rage" as "Pleasant black cold concrete". That made me curious, as I thought it rather unlikely that cold concrete (of any color) would be characterized as pleasant. On listening to the song additional times, I nonetheless usually heard "Pleasant black cold concrete". Then one time the actual lyrics, "Flesh and blood and cold concrete" sort of "grabbed me" as what I heard. The latter seemed to make more sense, and, checking a lyrics site, I confirmed them as correct. Now, having familiarized myself with the song enough to clearly anticipate the coming of this line I usually hear it correctly when I'm listening closely for it. Curiously though, I still generally hear "Pleasant black cold concrete" when I wasn't listening closely and the line takes me by surprise.
"Will You Be There (In the Morning)," Heart
Misheard Lyrics:
You're my obsession, my addiction, my drug,
So let the candle grow into a great fire plug.
Original Lyrics:
You're my obsession, my addiction, my drug,
So let the candle grow into a great fire of love.
Story about this misheard lyric by: Karen Smith: I was listening to the album "Desire Walks On". In those lines of this song, I heard "So let the candle grow into a great fire plug." I had occasionally heard the use of the term "fire plug" for fire hydrant, first by my mother, then by someone else years later. What a strange contorted metaphor , I thought. A candle produces fire, but a "fire plug" is something used in fighting fire. My mishearing might have been motivated by trying to make the lines rhyme, as "drug" and "plug" do rhyme, whereas there is only a pseudo-rhyme between "drug" and "love" in what turns out to be the real lyrics. On repeated listenings, I guessed the real lyrics as a possibility, but never discerned them so clearly by listening alone, and checking a lyrics site was how I finally confirmed them as the real lyrics.
"Here and Now," Luther Vandross
Misheard Lyrics:
Even now
Original Lyrics:
Here and Now
Story about this misheard lyric by: Cody Finke: Who's better, Luther Vandross or Barry Manilow?
"Like a Prayer," Madonna
Misheard Lyrics:
In the midnight owl
Original Lyrics:
In the midnight hour
Story about this misheard lyric by: Cody Finke: It makes sense to hear "midnight owl" in this song.
