Another one that springs to mind.........Modern Love by PG.Some hack wrote "I twisted my Peni*",instead of "I trusted my venus!" grin in a review of that song.

For many years my wife thought the opening lines to Wizzard's 'I wish it could be Christmas every day' were:

'When the snowman brings the snow
Well he looks like Matt Munro...'

Until '87 when I heard a recording of Rockline with Phil and Tony, I thought for years that the vocal line on Los Endos was 'There's a danger of insanity in the Sahara..' It went so well with the barren, desert-like feel of the piece that I was convinced! Of course, it's the classic line from Supper's Ready about angels standing in the sun and all that!

I was at a 50th birthday party last night (you know you're getting on a bit when you get invited to those!) and as usual at these discos the music was crap... YMCA, Birdy Dance, I Will Survive (HATE THAT!) etc!

Anyway, the DJ played Go and Get Stuffed!by Billy Ocean. Apparently it's When the Going Gets Tough!!

Used to have a little book with a whole lot of misheard lyrics in it. Two were Genesis:

from TEXTIllegal AlienTEXT "It's no fun being an illegal alien" became "It's no fun living in a neon arena."

from TEXTInvisible TouchTEXT "She seems to have an invisible touch, yeah" became "She sees the hatrack, is she gonna touch it?"

some others i remember:

there's a bad moon on the rise = there's a bathroom on the right (CCR)

we are agents of the free = we are ancient sophocles (REM - TEXTOrange CrushTEXT)

and my personal favourite from TEXTSmoke on the WaterTEXT:

Smoke on the water, fire in the sky

becomes

Slow motion Walter, fire engine guy. grin

also, Elton John's TEXTBenny and the JetsTEXT[/i]: i don't know what the original line is but i always thought it sounded like "She's got electric boobs, her mom has too."

Thought of another one:

In Bob Marley's 'Is This Love' it sounds like "We'll be together, with a roof rack over our heads" instead of roof right over our heads!

I'm french speaking. There's a ton of songs that i can hear similarities with french words. In "Wind of change" by the scorpions. The sentence "I follow the moskva" sounds like "Au forum demain soir" (At the forum tomorrow night)

here's a few from the Trick album..

a goal can find you a role on a muddy pitch in Newcastle

always sounded like

"go and find you roll on a muddy pitch..." cheesy
also..

"through a cracking mother earth..." (a crack in ..)

"here I am, I'm ready for you son brightly.." (huh!!)

(here I am I'm very fierce and frightening)

- more to follow I'm sure!

I've given up asking for Genesis music at discos, the best you get is some of the Phil Collins poppy stuff. And non-believers can be sooooo dismissive about Genesis. angry So I usually go for Queen, at least they were musically competent and get people bopping without all the crappy slush. smiley
