Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Barclay James Harvest

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: Finally, a song that sampling The Moody Blues' "Nights in White Satin" I posting here. There are similarity between this song and The Moody Blues' "Nights in White Satin" musically and lyrically. I'll see lyrics of both this song and The Moody Blues' "Nights in White Satin" at MetroLyrics that there are completely similar. About this song: Featured on their album, "Gone to Earth", released in 1977, the album itself peaking at #30 in the UK album charts, but faring better in Germany where it reaching #10 and staying for more than 195 weeks in the German album charts. As of 2011, it is ranking #6 on the list of longest running albums in the German album charts. Only the soundtrack "My Fair Lady", Simon & Garfunkel's "Greatest Hits", The Beatles' "1962–1966", Pink Floyd's "Wish You Were Here", and Andrea Berg's "Best Of" spent more weeks in the charts. It was the band's largest selling album, eventually selling more than a million copies worldwide. The song "Poor Man's Moody Blues" was written after the English progressive rock outfit referred by a journalist as a "poor man's Moody Blues". Shortly after, their guitarist John Lees wrote a song that reminded him of the Moody Blues song "Nights in White Satin" (reaching #9 on Billboard's Pop Chart in 1972 and originally released as a full length 7 minutes album version with the poem "Late Lament" from the 1967 album, "Days of Future Passed"), and decided to use the journalist's phrase as the song title. - Submitted by: Wisnu Aji
