It's so much fun to find out what which 80s lyrics you made up once upon a time just because you couldn't understand them actually are on the Internet. There are plenty of websites, not to mention YouTube videos, to explain what our favorite singers were really crooning, which helped me to understand that when the Thompson Twins sang "Hold Me Now," they were singing "my cold and tired heart," and not "my cold Italian heart," which made absolutely no sense to me as a kid.
So many songs have such funny misunderstood lyrics that we can't help but love them. A friend of my sister always thought that Mr. Mister's song "Kyrie" went, "Carrying a laser down the road that I must travel," and who doesn't sing, "Hold me closer, Tony Danza!" every time Elton John's "Tiny Dancer" comes on the radio?
