People just love to listen to different kinds of music that others can’t live without it. Admit it, the moment you heard a good music, you just can’t stop searching for it on YouTube or in Google. We have this urge that we just got to memorize the lyrics of this majestic song so that next time we hear it in our ear phones, we could sing along. But sometimes, no matter how much we try, we still don’t get the right word on that line and we instead use other words that sound like it. Some people knew it sounds wrong but as long as it rhymes, that’s fine. Here are 10 of the most modern songs with common misheard lyrics.
1. Ed Sheeran’s Thinking out Loud
Thinking Out Loud is a song popularized by its singer-song writer Ed Sheeran on the 24th of September 2014. The song became a hit in 20 weeks and finally reached the peak in early November 2014. The music went viral in social networking sites and the song’s line could be seen everywhere. Yes, the song went viral but it doesn’t mean all the lines posted were right. One of the most popular parts of a song is often its chorus. The line goes “Take me into your loving arms.” But for some reason, most kids misunderstood the line making it, “take me into your eleven arms.” Seriously?! Eleven arms? Hindu god Vishnu has 4 arms, Durga has 8, Kali has 10, and you might want to think which Hindu god you’re affectionate with.
- One Direction’s One Thing
“That’s what makes you beautiful!” This song can be heard in every radio station in United Stated, Central-Europe, and South-East Asia in its time. Die-hard fan girls never miss a concert of these “good-looking boys” and willing to give up their tuition fee to buy a ticket. ‘One thing’ is a song by English-Irish boy band One Direction and was released on January 6, 2012 by Syco Records. The upbeat track makes use of pop rock genre. The infamous line goes “You keep making me weak. Yeah, frozen and can’t breathe.” But for some reason, some people, especially girls sing it with sweetness like chocolate. I mean, literally chocolate. “You keep making me weak. Yeah, frozen and Cadbury.”
- Taylor Swift’s Blank Space
From fairytales to heartaches; Taylor Swift songs become youth’s favorite songs for years now. One of her best song so far is ‘Blank Space’, an electro-pop song with lyrics that satirize the media’s perception of Swift and her relationships. The song was released in November 10, 2014 by Republic records and still can be heard on the radio as of today. The lyrics signify the singer’s playfulness and liberty in love. The most misheard part of the song is the line “Got a long list of ex-lovers” which is often misheard as “Got a long list of Starbucks”.
- Sia’s Chandelier
Honestly speaking, I find it hard to understand Sia’s Chandelier music video of a white-haired girl dancing like ballet or whatever she’s dancing. Chandelier is a song by an Australian recording artist Sia from her sixth audio album written by the singer herself and Jesse Shatkin. The song was released on 17 of March in the year 2014. A lot of people is singing the song but what could be the real line for the song’s chorus? The real line is actually “I’m gonna fly like a bird through the night” not “I’m gonna fly like a butterfly”.
- John Legend’s All Of Me
This song is more popular than our national anthem. John Legend’s All of Me stormed the airwaves like the rangers of Baghdad. Kids sing the song whenever they hear it playing. All of Me is a song by American recording artist John Legend from his fourth studio album Love in the Future in 2013 and was released on August 12, 2013. The line goes “My head’s under water but I’m breathing fine.” But until now, you can still hear people replacing the word fine into something else like “My head’s under water but I’m breathing fire”.
