Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Al Jarreau

Misheard lyrics (also called mondegreens) occur when people misunderstand the lyrics in a song. These are NOT intentional rephrasing of lyrics, which is called parody. For more information about the misheard lyrics available on this site, please read our FAQ.

This page contains a list of the songs that have stories about their misheard lyrics submitted.

Song names are sorted by first letter, excluding A and The. This is sorted by song title only, not by song title and performer. So if two different performers preformed the same song, you'll see misheard lyrics for both on the same page (provided the song title was spelt the same both times, and misheard lyrics have been submitted for both!).

The Story: RIP Alwin Lopez Jarreau (12 March 1940 – 12 February 2017). Originally, I posting "It's Alright, It's OK" by Ashley Tisdale or Nivea commersial for the next misheard lyrics. But, because I wanna know about Jarreau's music for the first time, this time it giving to Jarreau. I hear this song for the first time was 2013 that it would be unknown and I don't know who singing this song. Because now I know English, originally, I try to searching a song with the line "...I don't need to want to hold you in my arms" at MetroLyrics indicated that Jarreau don't need to wanna hold his friend in his arms. But, after I get it that it would be "After All" by Jarreau, it say "..I will be the one to hold you in my arms" indicated that he now need or will be the one to hold her in his arms. About this song: "After All" is track #5 on his seventh studio album, "High Crime" (1984). It was written by Jarreau along with David Foster and Jay Graydon. While "High Crime" was an album with the influence of crossover jazz, rhythm and blues, and funk, "After All" was mainstream rock power ballad with the feel of pop rock and soft rock and it would be the album's major hit with reaching #69 on Billboard's Pop Chart and #26 on the R&B chart. The success of Jarreau wasn't the end until 1987's "Moonlighting" which was reaching #23 on Billboard's Pop Chart, #32 on the R&B chart, #8 on the UK Singles Chart, and topping the adult contemporary chart. Making Jarreau received more hit singles and awards from Grammy Awards. - Submitted by: Wisnu Aji
