Thanks to Spotify Lyrics, You’ll Never Sing It Wrong Again: These Are the Ten Most Misunderstood Lyrics | a musician

a musicianSpotify introduced a new feature Thursday: Spotify Lyrics. The name really speaks for itself, from now on you can see the lyrics with the song playing. Helpful, because you’ve probably heard it before: You sing a song with all your heart, but it seems like you’re not using the right words. You may have already sung something wrong with these well-known songs.

By the way this is very normal. Our brains do their best to make sense of everything, but when they fail, they try to find creative solutions to the problem. This phenomenon is called “Mondegreen,” misunderstood words for a song are automatically adapted by the listener’s brain into a recognizable and meaningful sentence.

Mondgren’s most famous event is probably “Ken Lee”. During the 2008 Bulgarian song “Music Idol”, a female candidate was convinced that the song she was going to perform was called “Ken Lee”. However, it was about Mariah Carey’s without you. Check out the confusing interpretation of the words for yourself below:

1. Coldplay – Heaven

Does Coldplay have a thing for gambling? Can. That’s definitely what their fans think, because one of the lines of their song “Paradise” contains the part “Para-para-paradise”, which came to many fans as “pair, pair, pair of dice.”

2. Miley Cyrus – Party in the United States

Miley Cyrus sings in her hit song “Party In The USA” about “Welcome to the Land of Overrated Fame” but it doesn’t take much to make it something else. To many, the lyrics sounded more like “Welcome to the land of smoldering sex.”

3. Taylor Swift – Blank Space

It has to be one of the most misunderstood lyric in recent years. Taylor Swift sings the phrase “I’ve got a long list of ex-lovers” in “Blank Space.” She certainly did, but coffee lovers heard it quite differently: “Bitch in Starbucks fans.”

4. The Kooks – naive

In any case, it is not always easy to understand just what Luke Pritchard sings from The Cooks. The sentence “And I know she knows I’m not fond of asking,” sung in a rather odd scale and tone, sounds rather quick like, “And I know she knows I’m from Nebraska.”

5. Bon Jovi – Levine in Prayer

Bon Jovi achieved worldwide success with Livin ‘On A Prayer’. He seems to be singing “It doesn’t really matter if we’re naked or not”. But that’s not the case, he sings “it doesn’t really matter whether we make it or not”.

6. Selena Gomez – Good for you

Selena Gomez sings “I’m 14 Karat” simultaneously. It is important to appreciate yourself, but her fans did not. They quickly turned it into “I fart carrots.”

7. The Queen – Bohemian Rhapsody

Memorizing the words of the Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody is a big task, and those who think they know him often miss the mark. Fans misinterpreted the line of poetry “save his life from this brutality” and interpreted it as: “save his life from that warm sausage tea.”

8. Celine Dion – My Heart Will Go On

The song “Titanic” excites a lot of people, especially people who pay close attention to it. You might accidentally hear the phrase “Near, far, wherever you are, I think hot dogs go on” rather than “Near, far, wherever you are, I think the heart goes on.”

9. Police – Message in a Bottle

Police considered “Message in a Bottle” one of their most profound lyrical songs. However it is easy to go wrong here. “It has been a year since I wrote my note,” and it often sounds like, “It has been a year since I broke my nose.”

10. Billy Joel – We Didn’t Start The Fire

The song reached #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 when it was released in 1989. The misunderstood lyrics remain highly entertaining to this day. The worst lawyer said, “We didn’t start the fire, it was always burning, because the world was turning” often confused with an alternative version, that is, “we didn’t start the fire, it was always burning.”
