“Hold Me Closer, Tony Danza?”: Listeners Share Their Funniest Misquoted Lyrics

Everyone wants to believe themselves a lyric expert, but how many times have you been sung a song you thought you knew out loud in the car, to only then have your friend stop you and say, “um…those aren’t the words?”

Spotify knows your pain, and recently released a playlist with the Top Most Misquoted Song Lyrics.

Included in the list are The Clash’s “Rock The Casbah” (“Rock the Cat Box”), Elton John’s “Tiny Dancer” (“Hold me closer, Tony Danza”) and Guns N’ Roses’ “Paradise City” (“Take me down to a very nice city”).

Even Beer Mug thought Van Halen’s “Panama” was really “Cannon Ball!”

“That would be the best song about a cannon ball though, wouldn’t it?” Kevin added.

We knew our listeners would have plenty of great misheard lyrics to add, and you did not disappoint:

Listener Selby thought that Imagine Dragons sang,”Ready, I Want To” instead of “Radioactive.”

Listener Casey was sure the Train song “Drops of Jupiter” said, “And Van Halen is overrated.”

Listener Arnold and his brother were both wrong when they thought Daft Punk sang, “We’ll rob a Mexican monkey,” in “Get Lucky”
