Misheard Song Lyrics
A weekly comic featuring the slightly dorky and far too innocent Push Button Heads characters, written and illustrated by Everett Wilson. Enjoy!
This Comic is Kind of Autobiographical
If you know me well in real life, you may have noticed that I don’t pay much attention to the lyrics of songs (or song titles, or the names of the albums, or the names of the artists). But I love a good tune and a hopping beat. What people might be singing is usually gibberish to my ears, and so it’s hard to care about what’s being said in-between the notes and signals. I also have to really want to care before I can listen well. With music there are so many other sounds to appreciate; the lyrics are where I draw the line most of the time. This is where I stop caring. I’d rather just enjoy what I’m hearing.
So it’s no surprise that I get things hilariously wrong sometimes. Rumour has it that most people mishear Taylor Swift’s song “Blank Space” (last panel in my comic), so I guess I’m not completely alone in the mishearing department.
Share your thoughts in the comments. Does anyone else struggle to hear song lyrics?
