In the misheard lyrics below, after finding out about the relative chronology, I found myself briefly wondering how the song authors knew what they were singing about years ahead of time. Then, I found out I was just mistaken about what they were singing.
- Elton John singing about a certain actor, 6 years before that actor's major TV debut.
- Blondie singing about audio technology, 16 years before its name was coined.
- Def Leppard singing about a popular gadget, 20 years before its initial release.
In each case, can you identify the original song and lyrics, along with the misheard version of the lyrics?
Hints for 2:
The misheard lyrics are rather "compressed" compared to the actual lyrics.
A ripping good time on one side, and a fragile emotional state on the other side?
The misheard lyrics are two letters and a number; while the actual lyrics are two prepositions.
