Been a Beach Boys fan my whole life. Song “Surfin’ USA” had the lyrics “… you’d see them wearing their baggies, their Archie sandals too..”. Today I discovered I’ve been wrong for decades. The actual isn’t “their Archie sandals” but is “ huarache sandals.”


If everybody had an ocean
Across the U.S.A
Then everybody'd be surfin'
Like Californi-a
You'd see them wearing their baggies
Huarache sandals too
A bushy bushy blond hairdo
Surfin' U.S.A






Well, well, well.


Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Someday your life will flash in front of your eyes. Make sure it is worth watching.

For Eagle's "Take It To The Limit" I thought for sure that they were saying "You can spend all your time making love, You can spend all your love making time," but later found out that they were saying "You can spend all your time making money, You can spend all your love making time." I kind of like my version better, I think, because it links to two lines together better.

I’ve listened to “Penny Lane” by the Beatles countless times but it wasn’t until a few years ago that I found out Paul was saying “poppies” not “puppies”. Lol.

Not misunderstood, deliberately messed up:
Saw Kenny Rogers at my hometown fair in the mid-70's. When he did "Fine Time to Leave Me Lucille, the last refrain went like this.

You picked a fine time to leave me, Lucille
With four hungry children and a crop in the field.
I've had some bad times, lived through some sad times,
But this time you're heating oatmeal.
You picked a fine time to leave me, Lucille.


SALUTE TO ALL!

Ah yes, that classic 90's song!
