"Sweet Dreams are made of cheese; Who am I to diss a brie; I travel the world and the Cheddar Cheese; Everybody's looking for Stilton."

Do it like a lady. That's what a tenth of the poll respondents thought Steven Tyler was singing.

Stand on the liver, ow-ow-ow. No wonder Adam Ant sounded like he was in pain.

"'Scuse me while I kiss this guy." Jimi Hendrix, a big fan of the Supreme Court's recent decision over gay marriage.

"We found Dove in a soapless place," sang Rihanna, after Unilever hired her to promote their fragrance-free range.

"It doesn't make a difference if we're naked or not." Er, Jon Bon Jovi, I think you'll find that it does.

KD Lang "can't stand gravy" on her '80s hit "Constant Craving." There's no need to pull that face, is there?

Spotify Poll Discovers Most Misheard Lyrics In Pop: Updated

Eurythmics, Rihanna, and Aerosmith are all big winners. We can suggest some more. Can you?

Spotify, the wondrous music app that recently won a $40 million investment from the firm belonging to the world's richest man, Carlos Slim, has compiled a top 10 list of the most-misheard lyrics.

Top of the list is Eurythmics, for "Sweet Dreams"—they're made of cheese, apparently. Check our slideshow for some other artists that made the top 10—and some who we think should have made it in there.

Writer's note: The poll was actually commissioned by Spotify and not Shazam. Apologies for the heinous error, I shall be meting out a suitable punishment on myself later on today.

    The linked article says that Spotify compiled this list, but your article says Shazam did it. Who is wrong?

    I am wrong. Apologies for demonstrating the true extent of my stupidity. A very public self-evisceration will follow--after the weekend, it's going to be sunny. Anyway, Rachel, apologies.
