To have only realised after THIRTY FIVE years that George Michael wasn't planning on a golden solo?!

Yes, I may as well share this with MN as it cheered DH up so much this morning...

I have only just realised (embarrassingly whilst singing this in earshot of DH blush) that in Wake me you before you go go, George Michael wasn't actually singing "I'm not planning on a golden solo" and instead he just didn't want to be going solo shock

(disclaimer: I was young when this song came out! I assumed a golden solo he meant he didn't want to be in the spotlight - having written that down I realise how fucking stupid it sounds blush)

Also, he wasn't singing Cherrybug in this song either. Well who knew? (According to DH - everyone)

I'm dying a little inside here.

Imagine my surprise when I discovered there was indeed a bad moon rising rather than "there's a bathroom on the right". grin

Take me to the place where you go, where nobody knows If it’s night or day
Not ‘not our day’ like I’ve sang since the 90s....

Livin’ on a prayer:

It doesn’t make a difference if we’re naked or not

Haha! I only realised about a year ago that in You're Still the One by Shania Twain that it's 'just look at us holding on' and not 'just look at a scolded nun'. I always wondered what the nun had to do with any of it.

Just how much free corn does Missy Elliot have to give away?

I had to get DH to explain Missy Elliott's free corn blush

Oh OP , how funny.
I love Peter Kay's misheard lyrics. Duffy, 'I'm begging you for bird seed' (mercy)
Celine Dion - 'I believe the hot dog goes on' (I believe the heart does go on) grin

I was in my 30s before I realised that the line in Karma Chameleon was:
*Loving would be easy if your colours were like my dreams
Red, gold, and green, red, gold, and green*
I thought it was:
*Loving would be easy if your colours were like my dreams
They're golden dreams, they're golden dreeeeeams*

My ds thought the opening line of Take on me by A-ha was “Donkey away..” i absolutely pissed myself when I over heard him singing it

Bold fail blush

This still makes me cry laughing every time I hear the song...my sister dancing away to the Prodigy shouting “Snap ma picture” while making a camera with her hands gringrin

Zemblanity well I was today years old when I found that out thanks to your post blush

According to me, aged 7, Neil Diamond "would much rather be the Reverend Bluejeans."

Bigbigboots Thu 14-Nov-19 12:08:42

What?
This is news to me. I thought he wasn't planning on going solo too.

A 'golden solo' sounds like a euphemism for a very posh wank...
