    Also, Cheryl Baker, Sue Lawley and Jocky Wilson all seem to get honorable mentions via mondegreens.

    Speaking of the Jocky [sic] Wilson song by Dexy's Midnight Runners, I thought that they were singing about the Yorkshire TV transmitter "up in Emley Moor"...

    That other song that I remember (but briefly forgotten before) was Irene Cara's "Flashdance... What A Feeling".

    When she sings "take your passion", it sounds like either "take your pension" or "take your pants off".

    And Dionne Warwick's "Do You Know the Way to San Jose" sounds like she used the f-word before singing "cars and pumping gas".

    I still thought it was "she's so popular" it's not a song I've ever taken much notice of, so the real words have passed right by me over the years.

    I used to think that the Hot Chocolate song was also Milko and not Miracles as well.

    In that 1980s Terry's All Gold advert, I thought that were singing: "see the face you love light off, with Terry's All Gold".

    Just listened to Brown Girl in the Ring from Boney M for the first time in years and I remember when I was younger that I thought they were singing about a "brown girl in the rain".

    Just heard that "Calling Cheryl Baker" song on Radio 2 this afternoon, and Steve Wright mad that pun as well.

    The Bangles and Manic Monday always spring/sprang to my mind - as when they said "the boss is already there", I was certain they said "Bus" and more so given missing the Train a and "even if I had an Areoplane I'd still not get there on time"!!
