Arguably the best part about jamming out to some songs is being able to scream the lyrics.
We shouldn’t place all the blame on our favorite artists, though — sometimes it’s our own shitty ears that mishear a word or word. Even when we learn the privilege lyrics, it’s already wormed and lodged itself into our brains, and good-for-nothing can ever stop you from singing “All the lonely Starbucks lovers” to Taylor Swift’s “Blank Space” again.
Some are Freudian moves. Some are just humorous, misrepresented misunderstandings. Here are our favourites.

PICKED A FIGHT WITH A MOOSE

9. Charlie Puth, known turtle aficionado
10. Just Ariana and her sword
11. Witches! In! Space!
In “Popular” in @WICKED_Musical, Elphaba says, “but of course I’ll care for Nessa.” Up until several days ago, I used to think she always said, “but of course I’d care for @NASA” like she’d go there as an alternative for academy … #misheardlyrics #wicked #theatre

12. Is the evangelist working on the railroad, or?
This is a rare pop song that contains a flute solo.
One of the more misheard lyrics comes in the second verse of this song, as “You know the preacher likes the cold” is often mistaken as “the preacher brightness the coals.”https :// t.co/ Ubg8sUU 94 P

13. A true-life classic
Even if you don’t remember the exact lyrics, ever remember to sing with confidence. Nobody will tell Tony Danza if you sing “Tiny Dancer” as “Hold me closer, Tony Danza … ”
