So long as pop singers mumble, garble, and swallow their lyrics, listeners will continue to misinterpret them, often with hilarious results. This site ( taps into that wellspring of comedy, citing misreads of everyone from the Beatles (”Hey, Dude” rather than ”Hey, Jude”) to Shaggy (”How could I forget I had given her an STD?” rather than ”…an extra key?”).

One song at a time.” Having logged more than 10,000 reported misinterpretations and analyzed the data to NASA-like standards, the site’s creators succeed in making a mockery of mockery.
