Mondegreens (Misheard Lyrics)

 
 
Reply Sun 7 Sep, 2008 02:02 am
Everyone's had experience with funny mondegreens in their life, but a recent fad has been to post videos of songs with the misheard lyrics and it has the funny effect of making it nearly impossible to hear anything but the subtitled mondegreens.

This one of Pearl Jam's Yellow Led Better is a good example because the song itself is unintelligible.

I almost pissed myself with those Indian songs.

Isn't it funny, the power of suggestion?
