I sooo relate to that ... not proud to say I'm the mondegreen queen. Not just my band's songs but almost everything. In my defence, I never thought Jimi wanted to excuse himself so he could "kiss this guy" ...

We're learning Eagle Rock for NYE as a joke (I hope it's a joke). I was trying to sing the backup vocs on first run through ... "Good old(?) Eagle Rock ... da da da da da ... I'm just crazy about the way you [sic] move ... doinnnn the Eagle Rock". Pathetic! Guess I never paid much attention to the song :)

Our singer gave me a quick primer afterwards so I could wrap my simple drummer head around the complexity of it all ...
