Chart magazine seems to print every letter that I send them. Either I am the world's finest letter writer or nobody writes to the poor bastards. Mind you they are also fond of printing the wild rants, you know the type - ALLL CPS AND FULL FO SPELLINF MSTAKES!!! NAD ANGRY!!!
They also seem to favour those letters coming in from soccer moms in support of "musicians" like Kalin Porter and that other Idol guy whose name I forget. Oh and Whitney Houston. They love those ones.
Mis-heard lyrics are something at which I excel apparently. I will blissfully sing along using the wrong words. Hell, I've been known to sing the wrong lyrics to the entire blogosphere.
Some personal favourites, without resorting to sites like Kiss this Guy, are as follows. These are all lyrics either misheard personally by yours truly or by folks I know. No musicians were harmed in the singing of these lyrics.
"baby if I was into men, you would be mine"
(maybe if I was in demand, you would be mine)
"you told me you wanted to eat up my sandwich"
(you told me you wanted to eat up my sadness)
"we've got to fool Phil to boot"
(we've got to fulfill the book)
"if you find yourself Courtney Love"
(if you find yourself caught in love)
"Kenneth lies next to me, whispering"
(my gun it lies next to me, whispering)
"I waffle my machine"
(I walk to my machine)
Care to share any of your finest misheard moments?
