    I misheard Fall Out Boy's song Fourth of July until I went to put it on a fanmix and realized that "you were my first sigh at night" was actually "you were my Versailles at night."

    I like mine better.

    Also I've been reminded that when Boulevard of Broken Dreams first came out I couldn't not hear the central refrain as 'I wore cologne, I wore cologne'.

    And now you can't unhear it either :P

    I listened to Counting Starsigns (Counting Stars attached to a Homestuck fanvid and without the sudden loud explosion noises at the end after a few seconds of silence) and I heard "but lately I've been, I've praying hard" as "but lately I've been, I've been playing hard" which to me makes more sense.

    Then again I also associated it with a BH6 Accidental Mafia AU. And by extension Hank Pines and the fic in which he gets a supernatural mafia entirely by accident and without even realizing it due to a mixture of kindness and coincidences.

    neither of these are mine, but my friends told me them and i literally can't unhear it now:

    my friend david swore for years that the line "the cross i bear that you gave to me" from you outta know was "cross-eyed bear" which i just find adorably silly

    and my friend kenzie always misheard "it's too late to apologize" from onerepublic's apologize as "it's too late to call the judge"

    So Google Play apparently misheard the lyrics too. I thought they seemed a little weird.

    I consistently mishear the title line of ELO's Evil Woman as "beautiful woman". Something about the way the 'e' gets dragged out.

    First time I listened to Fall Out Boy's Twin Skeletons, I heard
    and spent the rest of the song wondering what the hell a fake chair was.

    (true lyrics: "That shares our fate and deserves our pity")

    Final Fantasy XII had special moves called quickenings. During one of Balthier's, he'd say something I think was, "There's a proper way to do everything." But there were concurrent sound effects that made it a bit unclear and my sister and I kept hearing it as, "There's a problem with everything." He sounds so conversational about it. Almost satisfied.
