'Scuse Me While I Kiss This Guy

When I was little, I got a book called 'Scuse Me While I Kiss This Guy, and the sequel, He's Got the Whole World in His Pants. There were lots of great examples of lyrics you thought you heard right but didn't. (No, in "Don't Stand So Close To Me," Sting did not say, "that big pineapple cart" — he actually said "that book by Nabakov.") Never mind that a beverage spill in my backpack during a day at summer camp caused my copy of the second book to be orange-soda-bound. Now, all I need is this Web site. There's a band search box on the left side — a good place to start. Have fun.

I'd like to add that "Am I Right" doesn't just have misheard lyrics. Look at the other sections, including song parodies, better names for current songs, and "bad choices for on hold music". The last example tells you the artist, song and organization for which the on-hold music would be a little awkward. (For instance, the Smiths' "The Queen Is Dead," for when you're on hold all those times when you call Buckingham Palace. HA!
