You mean to say Billie Jean isn’t a “Batman Lover?”
Ahhh song lyrics. Modern day poetry. Touching. Emotional. Rousing. The connection you feel knowing there is an artist out there who understands how you feel. Except, when you’ve entirely misheard what it is they are ACTUALLY saying.
We’ve all got that one song (or seven, if you’re a little hard of hearing) that’s lyrics we have misheard, just a little. But that little is all it takes. And when you find out you’re wrong, it’s never by reading it in the album cover leaflet (do those still exist?), or hearing a stripped-back acoustic that makes it all a bit more comprehensible.
No, that realisation would be far too gentle.
You’ll be belting it out in the car, consumed with passion and a love of dance, and only then will someone politely
