We love Justin Bieber so much that sometimes we can’t help but sing his songs out loud… while we’re alone … on the street… Yes, people do think we’re insane and we do get dirty looks now and then but we can’t help that his music is so catchy. But even after listening to his songs dozens of times, we also can’t help mishearing them and thus, singing it all wrong.
Thanks to the misheard songs site Kiss This Guy, I’ll never hear some of his hits the same way again…
We’ve all done it — pretended to know a song, when really we’re all just noobs with a collection of misheard lyrics. Pleated Jeans recently made an epic compilation of songs with lyrics that are brutally misheard. I may or may not be guilty for some of those Blink 182 failures.
According to the video, these are some commonly misheard lyrics:
“I’ve left some brains down in Africa,” – Toto’s “Africa”
“With the lights out, sex is dangerous. Here we are now in containers,” – Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit”
“Padded bra! Padded br-a-a,” – Van Halen’s “Panama”
“You keep making me reek, yeah, frozen in Cadbury,” – One Direction’s “One Thing”
“Come on Barbie, let’s go potty,” – Aqua’s “Barbie Girl”
