    My sister thought Eric Clapton's Layla was actually saying "gay love," when we were younger, so to this day I still sing it this way. "Got me on my knees, gay love. Begging darling please, gay love."

    We heard Katrina and the Waves, Walking on Sunshine today as I drove my daughter to school. My daughter informed me that she used to think the song was literal, and the lyric was, “I’m walking on sunshine, and it doesn’t feel good! Ow! Woah!”

    until a couple years ago I thought the line in Toto's Africa was:

    "Sure as Kilimanjaro rises like an empress above the Serengeti" instead of "Sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serengeti."

    and I'll be honest... my lyric is better. Suck it, Toto.

    Thats a weird one to me, because Olympus seems very obvious to me.

    As sure Kilimanjaro isn’t in the Serengeti?

    As sure as a mountain rises like another mountain?

    As sure as a white guy writing about a place he’s never been and throwing words at it?

    As sure as Weezer did it better.

    It’s hilarious that Michael Jackson was inspired by Toto after collaborating with them on Thriller to give a fuck about Africa.

    Bono will never come close to Toto helping the African people.

    "Hold me closer Tiny Dancer" for some reason growing up I thought the lyric was "Hold me closer Tony Danza"

    There’s a reggae song the radio plays that has a chorus of:

    “It’s a two person party toniiiiiiiight”

    I thought for months the singer was saying,

    “It’s a two person car garage”

    Just going through this thread. He wrote out lyrics the night before they recorded and forgot them. He could only remember the chorus so he just made up the rest on the spot and mumbled.

    If you watch Brooklyn 99, they use "Title of your sex tape" instead of "That's what she said". I use it and a friend never got it. He tried to use it once and always thought I was saying "Tyler Perry sex tape" which explains why he never got it.
