Ever been caught singing the wrong lyrics to a song out loud? I have, on too many occasions to count.
There’s really no excuse nowadays to sing incorrect lyrics what with many websites like A-Z lyrics dedicated to ensuring you never distort another song again.
It wasn’t that long ago that it was near impossible to get song lyrics. This was clearly before the world wide web was so accessible (yes, think that way back), before iPods, mp3’s even CD’s where around.
Those were the days when all you had were your good ear to tell you (read: guess) what the artist was singing, as you hastily scribbled away whilst rewinding and fast forwarding till you had the whole song down. Back then music was up for interpretation, more like “corruption” really.
Quite a few song/lyric misinterpretations I have committed over the years come to mind, but I’ll share only one with you today for chuckles sake. If I disclose all of them, I will surely lose face on this blog!
Vim’s Interpretation: “To me you’re like a roller-dictionary-personal” Seal’s ‘Kiss from a Rose’
Actual Lyrics: “To me you’re like a growing addiction I can’t repel.”
Can’t help laughing at that musical faux-pas, its hilarious mate. If you sing my version really quickly it sounds exactly the same…promise :-)
Please share any of your song/lyric misinterpretations with me in the comments!
Have a great weekend!
