Probably the best part about jamming out to some tunes is having the ability to scream the lyrics.

But some artists really make you work for it. Persistent wrongdoers of the Incomprehensible Lyrics Club consist of Patrick Stump, Elton John, and The 1975

We should not put all the blame on our preferred artists, though– in some cases it’s our own shitty ears that mishear a word or phrase. Even when we learn the ideal lyrics, it’s already wormed and lodged itself into our brains, and absolutely nothing can ever stop you from singing ” All the lonely Starbucks enthusiasts” to Taylor Swift’s “Blank Space” once again.

Some are Freudian slips. Some are just amusing, distorted misconceptions. Here are our favorites.

1. Got the horses in the … hotel space?

2. FOOT, FOOTLOOSE, PICK UP YOUR FOOT FOOTLOSE

me, who clearly doesn’t know the lyrics to Footloose:

FOOTLOOSE

ANIMAL GOOSE

CHOSE A FIGHT WITH A MOOSE

CHEESE

STIFF BREEZE

BEWARE, THERE ARE 10 BEES

3. Now that’s one queen bee

4. This is the rhythm of the athletic shoes

5. What a shitty misconception

6. Well they got halfway near the initial lyric

7. Fully-automated high-end space communism, here we come

#misheardlyrics my preferred misheard lyric is my mom believing Hollaback Lady was “i ain’t no Holodeck girl’. and then goes on to rationally explain how it is a sound Star Trek reference about holograms and womens rights

8. What a yummy jam

My partner was playing Ariana Grande’s ‘thank u, next’ this early morning, and I was persuaded the chorus went:

” Bacon, eggs

Bacon, eggs

Bacon, eggs

I’m so

Fuckin

Thankful

For breakfast”

I resembled damnnnn I can come down to this, that shit tasty af. I was unfortunate when I found out the fact:-LRB-

9. Charlie Puth, understood turtle enthusiast

In “Attention” by Charlie Puth my pals and I heard

” you have actually been runnin’ round runnin’ round runnin’ round throwin that turtle on my knee” #MisheardLyrics

10 Just Ariana and her sword

11 Witches! In! Area!

12 Is the preacher dealing with the railroad, or?

This is an unusual pop song which contains a flute solo.

Among the more misheard lyrics is available in the 2nd verse of this song, as “You know the preacher likes the cold” is frequently mistaken as “the preacher lights the coals.” https://t.co/Ubg8sUU94 P

13 A real classic

Even if you do not remember the exact lyrics, constantly remember to sing with confidence. No one will tell Tony Danza if you sing “Tiny Dancer” as ” Hold me closer, Tony Danza … ”
