Top Ten most misunderstood lyrics

This is just for fun, since I don’t quite believe the truth from a poll that surveyed these ten most misunderstood lyrics from various popular songs. But Daily Star Sunday has got a spot-on sight; the iPod generations, as they called them/us are having hard times to hear clearly the lyrics from the degrading sound.

Either it’s because the bad sound of the music itself, or maybe you acquired the pirated tunes from the net, or perhaps the earphones you use are in need to be replaced? And not to mention the decline in lyrics written on CD booklets, music fans have began guessing what their favorite stars’ words. Here the top 10 of them:
  1. Madonna, Like A Virgin. “Touched for the 33rd time.” (Real lyric: “Touched for the very first time.”)
  2. REM, Losing My Religion. “Let’s pee in the corner.” (“That’s me in the corner.”)
  3. Nirvana, Smells Like Teen Spirit. “Here we are now, in containers.” (“Here we are now, entertain us.”)
  4. Bob Dylan, Blowin’ In The Wind. “The ants are my friends, they’re blowin’ in the wind.” (“The answer, my friend, is...”)
  5. Spice Girls, Wannabe. “If you wanna do my mother, you gotta get her a Benz.” (“If you wannabe my lover, you gotta get with my friends.”)
  6. Abba, Chiquitita. “Chicken tikka, tell me what’s wrong." (Chiquitita, tell me...”)
  7. U2, Mysterious Ways. “Shamu, the mysterious whale.” (“She moves in mysterious ways.”)
  8. Eagles, Desperado. “You’ve been outright offensive.” (“...out riding fences.”)
  9. Starship, We Built This City. “We built this city on the wrong damn road.” (“...on rock and roll.”)
  10. Red Hot Chili Peppers, Can’t Stop. “Can’t stop the ferrets when they need food.” (“Can’t stop the spirits when they need you.”)
