This Week In Music August 4-10
Remember the song "How Can You Mend a Broken Heart" by the Bee Gees? It hit #1 this week in 1971, and stayed at the top of the charts for four weeks.
I have a funny memory that comes to mind every time I hear that song. I was a kid when that song came out, and for the longest time, I kept thinking the words were, "How Can You Mend a Broken Arm?"
Does this sound familiar, misunderstanding certain words in songs? At first, I thought there must be something wrong with me, that I was the only one who had this problem. But over the years, I encountered many other people who did the same thing, so I didn't feel so bad.
What about you? Do you have a song malaprop, where, either intentionally or unintentionally, you substituted a word in place of a similar-sounding one? If so, feel free to post it. Maybe I'll compile a list of the most amusing ones and share them in a future post.
Enjoy the music.
