Re: Intentionally misheard lyrics new [re: SugarPlumFairy]  

one flash of light but no smoking pistol
Misheard as
one flash of light but no smoking crystal

the european canon is here
Misheard as
the european famine is here

Its on americas tortured brow
Misheard as
its on a merry cows tortured brow

My prayer flys like a word on a wing
Misheard as
My breath flys like a word on a wing

and finally Big Brother
hear me sailor save your shores

On suffragette city i also misheard
the smell of that chick has put my smile out of place

there were many more but because im aware of the proper words ive mentally replaced the misheard lyrics with them and forgotten them!

From "Oh! You Pretty Things" :

Proper lyric = Look at your children

What I thought it was = Look at old Churchill run

I honestly thought it was some kind of political comment.

My favorite is from Sorrow... The first time I heard "I tried to find her 'cause I can't resist her" I thought he said, "I tried to find her 'cause I killed her sister."

Also... Segue: Algeria Touchshriek... "I'm leasing the moon above my shop" instead of room

and ... I had another one but I can't remember now.

There is no hell like an old hell

I thought that was the coolest thing to say ever. My world is broken.

My favorite has always been my little daughter's interpretation of "Suffragette City". From the time she was very small until she figured out when she was about twelve that
"oh dont lean on me man cause you can't afford the ticket" wasn't actually "oh dont lean on me man cause you're a California chicken"

Good god, there are many...
Diamond Dogs (where I made most lyrical mistakes):
"Dressed like a fristuage (some French word I made up),
Top down and streaky walls"
instead of
"Dressed like a priest you was,
Todd Browning's freak you was."
"I'm sure you're not protected from this fantasy"
instead of
"I'm sure you're not protected for it's plain to see."

And there are so many MORE but I feel very tired. Good night.

In reply to:

All the Young Dudes- "Billy rocked all night about his suicide"



thats what I thought it was too!

Soul Love
"Through the bleeding hours of morning"
supposed to be: "Fleeting hours of morning..."

Moonage Daydream
"You're squawking like a big monkey bird"
suppoesd to be: "You're squawking like a pink monkey bird"


In another dimension, with voyeuristic intention...

In reply to:

I just found another one - in Hang onto Yourself I always thought (upuntil right now) it was "youre messing with the spiders from mars".



thats also what i thought it was, sounds better like that.

I also though in Sweet Thing
"Can't you see? That I'm scared and alone love"
Instead of "and I'm Lonely"
my friend also messed up lady stardust:
"And he was all for lice..." 'stead of awful nice

In another dimension, with voyeuristic intention...

Diamond Dogs:

"Dressed like a FREESTUAGE (???)
TOP DOWN AND STREAKY WALLSs"

"Come out of the DARK END, baby
You'll catch your death in the FALL."

Sound and Vision:

"Blue blue, 'lectric blue
Blue's the color of my SHOE."

Breaking Glass:

"LATELY I've been..." (this seems to be a common one)

Starman:

"Came back like a slow HORSE on a WHITE TRAIN."

Young Americans:

"YOU'RE EVERY woman i can SUCK on the DOOR."

Ziggy Stardust:

"DOES the beer LIKE to guide us?"
