Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Anna Nalick

Misheard lyrics (also called mondegreens) occur when people misunderstand the lyrics in a song. These are NOT intentional rephrasing of lyrics, which is called parody. For more information about the misheard lyrics available on this site, please read our FAQ.

This page contains a list of the songs that have stories about their misheard lyrics submitted.

Song names are sorted by first letter, excluding A and The. This is sorted by song title only, not by song title and performer. So if two different performers preformed the same song, you'll see misheard lyrics for both on the same page (provided the song title was spelt the same both times, and misheard lyrics have been submitted for both!).

Anna Nalick's, "Wreck of the Day"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Driving away from the wreck of the day.
And the light's always red with you.
Desperately close to a coffin of hope.
I'd cheat destiny just to be near you.
The Real Lyrics:
Driving away from the wreck of the day.
And the light's always red in the rear-view.
Desperately close to a coffin of hope.
I'd cheat destiny just to be near you.
The Story: Musically, it can be compared to Canadian's Sarah McLachlan. Because, it was the new generation of Sarah McLachlan. But, vocally, it can be refered to Suzanne Vega. They both are similar in vocal (this similarity is can be heard on another pop rock power ballad titled "Luka"). About this song: Featured on its debut album of the same name in 2005, it also including her power ballad, "Breathe (2 AM)", which was reaching #45 on Billboard's Pop Chart and #37 in New Zealand. It was a rock radio hit for Nalick. Meanwhile, her follow-up single, "Wreck of the Day", was a moderate success. If we comparing between "Wreck of the Day" with "Breathe (2 AM)", only 50% listeners who previously listening to "Breathe (2 AM)" now listening to "Wreck of the Day" and they mostly listening to "Breathe (2 AM)" rather than "Wreck of the Day". - Submitted by: Wisnu Aji
