Trivia about me ...

Just in case you didn't know ...

Sometimes I feel like I live in a huge game of MadGab.

I'm way too good as mishearing song lyrics.

Michael still laughs that I thought "Big Yellow Taxi" contained the line "Baby be nice and put up a parking lot."

Hello!! When the guy from Counting Crows sings it, it DOES sound like that.
It wasn't until after I was married that I learned it really says "They paved paradise and put up a parking lot."

Michael: What's nice about putting up a parking lot??
Me: I don't know ... maybe they are wearing new shoes?

Friday night, as we were out shopping, "Night Fever" by the BeeGees came on.

I learned, yet again, that I don't know songs.

For that chorus part after "The feeling is riight!!" ... Well, I couldn't tel what they were saying. So I just tried to make sense of what the sounds COULD be. And, no, I DIDN'T know the title of the song. Even though I gladly listen to disco.

So, I always hear it as "Niiiiighteeeen Niiiiiighteeee Niiiiiiii-hhh" ... Nineteen ninety-nine. Good year. My graduation year. Cool, cool.

NOT THE LYRICS, so I learned.
They actually are just saying, "Night fever, night fever."

Ugh.

And, then I had to ask Michael about "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough" by Michael Jackson.
He didn't know what Jacko was saying either ... but he was sure I was wrong.

As I'm looking it up:

The CORRECT lyrics are "Keep on with the force, don't stop, don't stop 'til you get enough."
What I hear:
"Rock on, be a p0rn star, don't stop 'til you get enough."

I always thought Elton John was singing, "Hold me close, young Tony Danza". It wasn't until last year or so that my husband informed me that the real lines are "Hold me close, young tiny dancer"! Tony Danza, tiny dancer, same diff!
