What's LOVE got to do with it? Or how to wreck a good love song

Hello TEB fans!  This is my first monthly post for HITTING the HOT SPOT and I'm excited :-)  It's been a busy week for me and I've thought long and hard about what to write here today.  I love to put something up that's a little bit of fun, so here we go.

A couple of weeks ago I saw this article in a local newspaper and it tickled my fancy.  It's funny how we hear something over and over and mishear what is being said. Or in this case - sung.  Yes, I'm talking about love songs.  Those songs meant to inspire us, and to remind us of those we love and have loved and lost.

So how can we get it so wrong???

You have to laugh really. But as I writer, I feel for the lyricists and the artists.  It can't be good for the ego to find out people have completely misunderstood your meaning. In some cases - you just have to think WTF?

Don't these people know they are listening to love songs?  Apparently not.

Here are a few examples of some popular misheard songs...maybe you can give us some more? I'd love to hear them. (Source: Spotify)

Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart's Sweet Dreams is often misintepreted as: "Sweet dreams are made of cheese / Who am I to disagree?” Does this mean they were selling dairy products? LOL

What about Rihanna "Finding Dove in a soapless place" ?

And my personal favourite - According to Spotify - Many people who saw the ADDICTED TO LOVE film clip with the vacant-eyed models playing around Robert Palmer thought “might as well face it, you’re a dick with a glove"   LMAO!

Really? Really?  People heard it as that? Okay, maybe they have a point. *snickers*

In Australia, many an argument can be heard about the words of Jimmy Barnes in Cold Chisel as he's singing that classic "Cheap wine and a three day goat"  No - it's "Cheap wine and a three-legged goat".  Truly ruly.   All right, it's meant to be "Cheap wine and a three day growth"

And who can forget that other Aussie classic from Australian Crawl  "Bewdiful pit-bull"  I'm sure the beautiful people of the day didn't get it either!

(this from a band my dh used to play in back in the day...before they were famous!) 

Paul McCartney is not averse to the nonsense lyric of course, but I'm pretty sure this isn't what he meant to sing in that gorgeous ballad Michelle "Michelle, ma belle / Some say monkeys play piano well / Play piano well"

OR DID HE?

So what are your favourite misheard lyrics?  Leave your answer in the comments and you will win an ebook copy of my Action Adventure classic THE RELIC.

And you can find out more about myself and my books over on the Total-e-bound website by clicking HERE

While you're there you can see my latest release KINKY BET.

Who knew losing a bet could be this much fun?

Erica Nielsen agreed to a bet with her best friend, but she never imagined losing would involve a weekend of punishment at Dangerous Liaison, a BSDM retreat. But was it really punishment being trained by a sexy Irishman who takes her on a sexual journey of a lifetime?

Conal Brennan agrees to help a young woman find her submissive nature. He always enjoys being the one in control, but one look at the Nordic blonde he calls 'Fire girl' and he’s not sure who’s controlling whom.

Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of light BDSM, spanking, bondage, voyeurism, group sex, public sex, M/F/M, some F/F action and a whole lot of kink!



And not a misheard lyric in sight!

Hi Maggie, I agree with the misheard lyrics. I have heard many. One that sticks out is Cold Chisel's Khe Sanh. The last train out of Sydney is almost gone. Should be plane not train. Diane

Maggie Nash said...

Oh yes! I think it must have been something about that era in music. Shout and mumble but rock the house! I don't think I got most of Cold Chisel's lyrics. I would just mumble/hum along...LOL

Ashlyn Chase said...

Love these!
My hubby and I were just having this discussion. There's a recent song (Don't know the name or artist at the moment) and we were wondering what was said. "In my sweet heart?" But then there's a line that just says, In my sweet. That's kind of weird. Maybe it's a whole different word. Next time I hear it, I'll try to listen to the artist's name and look it up.

Maggie Nash said...

LOL Ash. Maybe they're talking about sweet candy? LOL. I love misheard lyrics. The possibilities are endless ;-)

Barbara Elsborg said...

Are we human, or are we dancer?
OR
Are we human, or are we damned, sir? - which was what I thought it was for ages.

oh and Natalie Imbruglia
..lying chained and naked on the floor - not shamed and naked. Though that did give me an idea for a vampire book that I used!

Dawn Montgomery said...

Those are called Mondegreens. The only reason I know is because I'm the WORST at it! I've butchered almost every song I've sang along to.

A doctor I met on deployment was a word origin expert (I can't remember what he called himself! LOL). He teased me mercilessly about it the entire time I was overseas.

VenusBookluvr said...

I like misheard lyrics because I sing along with the radio in my car all the time and am notorious for singing the incorrect words. I know there is a Creed song and I always say the word underwear and it is so wrong. As a very little girl I though Michael Jackson said shake your boobies not booty :-)

Love the post and loved your book the Relic!

Victoria Adams said...

Fun post. Intriguing cover and blurb.

Molly Wishlade said...

Hey Maggie! * waves from Wales*
Great to see you at the Hot Spot!
Your post is fabulous! I've made some cracking errors in my time -for example, In Jimi Hendrix 'Purple Haze', the lyric is 'scuse me while I kiss the sky' but I though it was 'while I kiss this guy'! So a MM song! What the song is actually about is another conversation altogether! Lol!
Have a great week!

Stephanie Cage said...

I'm a big fan of Elton John's Cocoa Heart. Chocolate lyrics always get my vote!

Maggie Nash said...

Oh yes Barbara! Lying chained and naked on the floor - I hear that too! Must be because I write BDSM LOL

Maggie Nash said...

Thanks Dawn! I never realised it had a name. Who knew? Mondegreens is such a great word too!

Maggie Nash said...

Thanks Venus! Yes, shake your boobies is something I hear a lot in songs LMAO!

Maggie Nash said...

Oh Stephanie - me too. Anything chocolate, but especially an Elton John chocolate song LOL

Maggie Nash said...

Thanks Victoria. Yes, I love my covers. All of them :-)

Maggie Nash said...

Hi Molly! How cool would that be? Jimi Hendrix as a gay lover. Suits him down to a tee!

Maggie Nash said...

Thanks to everyone for your comments. I'll draw my winner tonight (my time). That gives everyone another 8 hours or so to still comment :-)

Cindy Spencer Pape said...

My hearing has always been just a little fuzzy, so I've always had a problem with it. There's a song that goes "Will you forgive the things I said to you when I was drunk. I didn't mean to call you that." I thought the last word was "Fat." Actually, I thought that made it even funnier.

Maggie Nash said...

LOL...that's funny Cindy! I think I prefer fat too :-)

Maggie Nash said...

Okay...using Random.org I have chosen my winner. Congratulations Cindy! You win! I'll email you :-)

Kiru Taye said...

Hahahaha. Great post, Maggie!
