Wow, today’s gonna be a great day. Wanna know why? ‘Cause it’s the 1st time I didn’t write this post at 7 pm or at 10 pm on a Sunday! Yay XD
Ah, yes: one of the most awaited series of this blog. In case you’re clueless as to what I’m talking about, I’ll give you the backstory to it. Last Monday, I had asked you guys which one of the two series should I publish first: the misheard lyrics one or the artist names after bad translation one, and so many of you rooted for the former idea. So, here it is!
Boy, did I have so much fun compiling entries for this series. In fact, there are so many entries that there’s a 90% chance you’d get to see a Part 2 come out soon. No seriously, it’ll come out soon………right after I post the Song Lyrics After Bad Translation Part 2. However, this post shall focus on some mainstream songs, as well as certain artists’ popular songs before moving onto some other genres. So, like the Song Lyrics post, this to has a procedure, which is as follows:
- The following songs have a snippet of a lyric/lyrics that tend to deceive our hearing skills, along with the actual lyric.
- In order to get the feel of it, you need to actually play the mentioned song and read the misheard lyric(s) as soon as it comes on in the song. You can play the song as many times as you like, if you’re still not convinced about this.
That’s pretty much it to this post. Now without further ado, let’s plug in our headphones and see what weird things await ahead.
