Listening to a fairly eclectic collection of music at the moment and "Elektrobank" by the Chemical Brothers came on, which I haven't heard in ages.

A slightly wooly a coffee soaked part of my brain is convinced that the lyrics contain the line "I'm a thighmaster", which would be unusually random even for them.

So what songs have you missheard or any classic moments of publicly singing the wrong lyrics?

I think "Excuse me while I kiss this guy" might become the "Godwin's Law" of this sort of thread :-)

I genuinely used to wonder why, on 'Heal the World', Michael Jackson wanted us to "make it a better place for you and for me and the anti-human race"...

In reply to mkean: In their trak 'Thick as thieves', Kasabian sing "I give you all the earth's skies". I like to think it's the singer's poor diction rather than my cloth ears, but it was only when I looked this up that I realised they were NOT singing "I gave you all my arse gas".

ozzie singing paranoid was supposed to be telling people to commit suicide

"i tell you to end your life"

no "i tell you to en-joy life, i wish could but it's too late"

"Come on you Cheryl Baker..."

Both REM from Automatic for the People.

Macey Grey "I Try"

The bit in the corus that is supposed to be "My mind boggles when you are not here" sounds an awful lot like "I wear goggles..."

My man thought the words were-

Sterilized,
Sterilized,
Uh,uh,uh uh,
Sterilized,
Sterilized.

He's a foriegner.

This sort of thing used to be more common in the days before CD. Some peoples vinyl was in poor condition and this led to misheard lyrics. Here's a couple of examples:

In reply to mkean: 1st time I heard Michael Jackson's Beat It I couldn't believe a song with the lyrics "show me hot f#cking" was being played on daytime radio. Turns out it's "showing how funky".

"She keeps a mohican shotgun
In a pretty cabinet..."

I always wondered what a mohican shotgun was and what it had to do with Marie Atoinetter until I read Good Omens where one of the characters is listening to this and wondering who Moet and Chandon are.... :o)

What about Richard Ashcroft's obsessions with barn owls in The Drugs Don't Work?

I always thought that a line in 'Grease Lightning' said:

"You know that ain't no shit, we'll be getting lots of tit in Grease Lightning"

So I looked it up and found that is indeed the lyric.
