Misheard Lyrics:
Just to get a glimpse of honest illusion
Original Lyrics:
Just to get a glimpse beyond this illusion

Story about this misheard lyric by: James Curran

When I finally discovered the correct lyrics, I then really first consider the lyrics that I thought I'd heard, and realized the the concept of an "honest illusion" was pretty interesting. And it was a pretty interesting concept that was not copyrighted by someone else. (I've since gotten it as an Internet domain)

Funniest Song Lyrics:

"Dust In The Wind"
The Funny Lyrics:
All we are is dust in the wind...
Why They're Funny:
Some people might think this portion of the song could work as an advertising campaign for a Dustbuster (hand-held vacuum cleaner). (Notice that I said "some".)
