Thank Frodo It’s Friday.
What better way to spend the Hallowe’en weekend than with another Broadsheet music competition?
This week, as suggested by reader Morgen Scheißekopf, the theme is misheard lyrics. Are there any song lyrics which you heard wrong and what was your garbled version?
I spent the guts of 40 years mistaking a line from The Stranglers hit Golden Brown.
They wrote: “Golden brown texture like sun/ Lays me down with my mind she runs.”
I heard “Lays me down with my mansheerons.”
I have no idea what a mansheeron is. I just presumed they did!
To be in with a chance of winning a spooky €25 Golden Discs voucher, simply reply below with your mistaken lyrics.
The winner will be chosen by my domesticated vampire.
