    Try listening to 6music - it's a lovely mixture and the Djs are mostly good - particularly the women.

    Madonna, La Isla Bonita:

    Young girl with eyes like the desert

    I always heard it as "Young girl, with eyes like potatoes...."
  3. I thought it was 'eyes like pesetas' until just now. [​IMG]

    You also seem to mis-hear 'guilty' as 'innocent', sarah ....
  5. ?
  6. Can I second the ? and add ????
    No idea what you mean, hbf.
  7. got it Sarah

    HBF was making an obscure ref to the ********** thread

    No idea why
  8. Me neither. I was told at work that he had been found innocent (I work in secondary so don't really pay much attention) so I asked whether it was true. Didn't I?

    That must be a really common one to mishear. I always heard it as 'he is the Lord of the dance settee', and wondered what a dance settee was, as we had a settee but not a dance one.
    The other religous one I always mis-heard was 'And as we worship, build a throne.' I always heard this as 'and as we worship, Hilda throne.' Cue many long years of wondering who Hilda was and why she had a throne.
    Another that makes me laugh is a very confusing conversation between myself a friend who was very indignant that meatloaf was crushing birds, and he should show more responsibilty han o include lyrics like that in his songs. Needless to say it wasn't crushing birds, but' they say he crashed and burned, I know I'll never know, why any boy should die so young.' Very confused. :)
  15. I may have added this one to the old thread but I always thought 'Shoot that pointed arrow' was 'Shoot that Bobby Davro'. I have a particularly dizzy friend who, as a child, HONESTLY thought that the line 'why, why, why, Delilah?' was 'wide, wide, wide vagina'. I kid you not, tee hee!
  16. Arrrgh - sorry, I mean 'shoot that poisoned arrow!'. Monday mornings...

    That's exactly what I thought it was and laughed that people thought it sounded like potatos!
    I always thought You Got the Love by Source said: 'Sometimes I feel like throwing my pants up in the air' until I was corrected several years later...
