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.
