I'll add one I still think "Blinded By The Light" has a line saying "Reved up like a douche"
This was a common misconception about this song, and in fact Bruce Springsteen supposedly took a jab at the remake, saying that the reason it made it to #1 was because everyone thought that MMEB was singing "wrapped up like a douche". Bruce's original lyric was "cut loose like a deuce", but MMEB changed it to "revved up like a deuce".
All I have to say is: sorry Bruce, but the reason MMEB's version hit #1 was because it was a significantly more enjoyable listen than Bruce's original version. Just one man's opinion...

From 1976 through 1984, every time I heard "Grow Some Funk Of Your Own" by Elton John, I would sing, "Grow some funk of your own, meatloaf! Grown some funk of your own!" It took a couple of high school buddies to let me know I had been singing it wrong for eight years.
I thought it would be fun to bump up this thread to see if anyone has any new ones. I remembered one after hearing "More Than A Feeling" on this week's 1976 show.At first I thought that Boston was singing "When I get tired of taking coke" instead of "When I'm tired and thinking cold" I thought they were talking about drugs!It was the 70's after all
As the numbers get smaller the hits get bigger....
I often got a line confused from Toto's "Africa" "I get some rays down in Africa" is what I thought was said. It's actually "I bless the rains down in Africa."A couple others popped in my head</hr>Corey Hart's "Sunglasses At Night" "You just gotta bad diet cherry coke."</hr>Bryan Adams's "Summer of 69" "Standin on your mama's (expletive)" Take into account the number in the title of the song </hr>
