instead of alias all the way through that song I heard the name Eliotand wonder why she was living under a man called Eliot.

Bon jovi - blaze of glory

Coldplay - I carried a worm (think it was carried the world)

Kenny Rogers- 400 children and a crop in the field.

The hollies and bus stop - bus stop Wendy, she's there I say Michelle my umbrella. I thought they were just naming inanimate objects, however my mother after much mirth told me it was "bus stop,wet day, she's there I say please share my umbrella"

We are family -I stapled the vicar - still don't know what the right ones are.

Locked out of heaven (Bruno Mars?). - you sex text me to paradise - I thought wey hey she's game!! Apparently it's your sex takes me to paradise

The famous one is Id lang's constant craving as 'can't stand gravy', can't think anything else now. Also knew someone who thought living on a prayer was 'living on bread'

Not misheard but if we ever hear Kenny and Dolly we always sing 'Island Industries' instead of Islands in the Sea.

And Madonna Ray of Light will always be Anna Friel instead of And I feel Smile

I misheard that song by Taio Cruz:

"I throw my hands up in the air sometimes, saying ayo! Galileo!"

Finding out that I was wrong ruined my enjoyment of the song a little. Grin

Mum used to have a Chris deBurgh tape in the car. I thought 'don't even fix the price' in Don't pay the ferryman was 'don't pay the pixie price'. When I was about 6 we went on a school trip around the harbour on a little ferry. I told my teacher he had to make sure he didn't pay the pixies Grin

"street light" instead of "street life"
"I hope youve combed your hair" instead of "i hope you comprehend" simply red stars.
"valerie" instead of "out of reach" by gabrielle

Misheard from The Specials song Concrete Jungle-
“Insects on the street”
I played it over and over again but apparently it was,
“It ain't safe on the streets”
