We heard the track coming over the sound system when we were on holiday and I pointed out to friends that the backing singers repeat 'hot banana' and now i'm unpopular because that's what they hear every time the hear the track...........

I'm sure it's a mondegreen, they are probably singing nonsense syllables, as was common in the do-[*****] days.

But the next time I hear it (if I ever do) I'll definitely hear "Hot Banana".

CCR sings "There's a bathroom on the right"

Hendrix sings "'Scuse me while I kiss this guy"

But I think we've had a mondegreen thread before. If not, post your favorites.

Bob, not meaning to hijack your thread, but you are right, the lyrics to some songs will never sound the same again.

Peter Kay clarifies some lyrics for us:

Bee Gees - "More Than a Woman" --> "Bald Headed Woman".

The wife gave me that one and ruined the song forever for me. laugh

CCR: There's a bathroom on the right (There's a bad moon on the rise)

Eagles: Flies in the Vaseline (Life in the fast lane)

Hendrix: 'Scuse me while I kiss this guy ('Scuse me while I kiss the sky)

And my favorite mondegreen:

Wife calls husband while he is golfing "Hi honey, where are you?"

Husband replies: "I'm on the green" (I mondegreen)

Amusing.... Stone Temple Pilots actually used the "Flies in the Vasoline" lyric in their "Vasoline" song. I wonder if they were playing on that Eagles mondegreen?

Vasoline Lyrics

Then there's the Dr John classic "Walk on Gilded Splinters". My wife asked me one day why are they singing "Kill Alberta"?
I finally found out what they were really saying was "Till I burn up".

In their song "Tonight Is The Night I Fell Asleep At The Wheel", the Barenaked Ladies reference "Slow motion Walter, fire engine guy" (Smoke on the water, a fire in the sky).

Humble Pie covers this on their Live at the Fillmore album..... still hard to figure out the words, but the guitar playing is STELLAR. A young Peter Frampton smoking it....and with killer crunchy tone. 23 minutes of sonic bliss. Put on some headphones and enjoy this.

I think misheard lyrics have to be some of my favourite lyrics. When I was quite a bit younger and it was more common to read magazines still, I have a monthly subscription and part of it was a section dedicated to people's submissions of misheard song lyrics. It was always worth a chuckle.

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2019 Build 2 Update Available!

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2019 users can download the FREE Build 2 patch update here

Summary of Changes in Build 2:
Fixed: Sometimes the position of the VST/DX plugs window (even if not visible) would prevent a drop, such as into the drop station, from occurring.
Fixed: When batch converting files, the volume of some file types such as wav/mp3/wma/mp4, etc. would be too low.
Fixed: In Chords Window, you could not enter held chords on Piano track.
Fixed: LeadSheet might not display tied notes on the last bar of a track.
Fixed: Pressing "M" key in Editable Notation to insert a new note at the current time location on the Staff was inserting a duplicate note rather than inserting it above an existing note.
Fixed: Loading in a MusicXML file could result in MIDI notes of zero instead of the currect MIDI notes.
Fixed: Dragging a file into the tracks window didn't always result in the effects slot for the track being setup properly for the file type dragged in.
Fixed: When inserting hard rest, and answering Yes to question about removing notes for the peg, it would remove notes from both clefs instead of the clef that the rest was inserted on.
Fixed: Potential access violation when deleting a note in staff window.
Fixed: Potential jukebox access violation if there were songs with the entire path of the filename being 256 characters or greater loaded into jukebox.
Fixed: Jukebox not playing the playlist in correct order in certain situations involving stopping/restarting, etc.
Fixed: When loading in a MusicXML file that has a specific guitar fretboard defined that matches one of our fretboards, the guitar tablature type will now be set for the notation.
Fixed: Ability to load in .MXL (compresssed musicXML file) as well as ability to load normal noncompressed musicXML file with the new .musicxml extension instead of just .XML.
Fixed: Hammer ons, pull offs, and slides are now being saved to MusicXML files.
Fixed: Exceptionally jittery timing indicator in the notation window during playback compared to older versions of RealBand.
Fixed: If the start of a generated section of a song didn't have a chord entered at the beginning of the section, then it could default to a C major chord instead of the most recent chord prior to the section.
Fixed: Potential access violation if song has micro-pegs and multiple notes on a peg.
Fixed: Accidental element that specified whether a note was displayed as sharp/flat wasn't eing saved to XML, even though the correct pitch of the note itself was saved.
