We have all done it. We think we know the lyrics to a song. We sing them passionately….and incorrectly. Here are a few classics.

  • "Sweet dreams are made of cheese”. Correct lyric: “Sweet dreams are made of these” by The Eurythmics 'Sweet Dreams'
  •  “Excuse me while I kiss this guy”. Correct lyric: “Excuse me while I kiss the sky” from Jimi Hendrix’s ‘Purple Haze’.
  • “It doesn’t make a difference if we’re naked or not”. Correct lyric: “It doesn’t make a difference if we make it or not” from Bon Jovi’s ‘Livin’ On A Prayer’.
  • “A year has passed since I broke my nose”. Correct lyric: “A year has passed since I wrote my note” from The Police’s ‘Message In A Bottle’.

The list goes on and on. Well, I think I just came across another one. It’s a song by Europe. We all thought it was “It’s the Final Countdown”. (Yes, I am dating myself.)

But... listen closely. I think you’ll agree that what they are really singing is…

“It’s the Foglight Cloud Now!”


Am I right?

Well, if nothing else, as a fun prank, I now have that song stuck in your head for hours…maybe days.
