For the longest time I heard the line from More Than A Feeling "I See My Maryanne Walking Away" as "I See My Aunt Harriet Walking Away." (I guess that means I've watched too many episodes of Batman.)

I used to believe the line from Rush's Red Barchetta was "Before The Motor Lodge " instead of "Before The Motor Law." The led me to believe that that song was about a kid visiting his uncle in the country, not based on a short story. It's alright if you think I'm weird in thinking those things.

Carly Simon’s you’re so vain (don’t like the one a bit) which played endlessly on WOMC for several years this decade... I always heard “clouds in my coffee” as clowns in my coffee... for a while I couldn’t figure out how that was supposed to make sense...

I always wondered why Mick Jagger was telling us "I'll never leave your pizza burnin" as he sings the opening words to "Beast Of Burden"....

HaHa so did I, for years I thought that was the lyric from the England Dan & John Ford Coley tune "I'd Really Love To See You Tonight"

In that Only Time song by Enya, after each verse, it sounds like she's saying "Frito Lay."

Let's not forget the all-time champion. "How my poor heart aches" in Every Breath You Take sounding like "I'm a pool hall ace."
