...lyrics, quotes, or whatever?

For me, what comes to mind is something I heard on the radio a few years ago. Someone was quoting Barry Manilow, and it sounded like he said, "I was the hot flash of gelatin"! :lol:

Another one is the song, "Forever In Blue Jeans", by Neil Diamond. Ever since I can remember, I swore he was singing "Reverend Blue Jeans", and later I found out that many other people thought that too.

There are sooo many more, not just songs, but even things people around me say that I didn't hear right.

Anyone else?

There is a used and new car sells man out here in California that does these commercials where the narrator says "Go see Cal, go see Cal, go see Cal!". For the longest time I thought he was saying "Pussy cow, pussy cow, pussy cow.".

Usually, if I'm listening to rap or techno I can't make out what the lyrics are so I generally make up my own to go along with the beat. Strange, but, that's me. =P

You know that song Blinded by the Light?

The lyrics "revved by like a deuce another runner in the night" I always heard "revved up like a douche, another rubber in the night"

A kiwi band call The Feelers, and their song Venus. The actual lyrics say; Come my little Venus, Can't you feel, it's in all of us. One of my friends always thought the lyrics were; Come in my anus, can't you feel it in all of us. I can never listen to that song with a straight face any more.

I always thought he was saying "Wrapped up like a doucher, in a roller of the night"

I know EXACTLY who you mean- Cal Worthington! I'm not in California, but that man used to have a dealership in my state too, many years ago with those same commercials! My grandmother also heard it that way too!

Does he still have his "dog Spot", which would always be some exotic creature like an elephant or a kangaroo?

That brings back some memories.

That Pussycat Dolls song...When I Grow Up, or something like that; one of the lines is 'I want to have groupies.' I, some guy on the radio and a few others, though it was 'I want to have boobies.'

I pissed myself laughing when i first heard it.

Oh yeah, I remember he said "And come see my dog, Spot." From the current commercials I've seen I haven't heard him use that line anymore. Maybe due to the recession he had to pimp "Spot" out to the local zoo. =(

When I was little, my mom always laughed at me because of "Jeremy" by Pearl Jam. I'd think "Jeremy's spoken" was "Jeremy's smokin'". My cousin's name is Jeremy...and I'd always say "Awww, Jeremy's smokin'? That's bad I'm telling Aunt Lola!"

Ah, not that funny. My mom thought it was though. :p
