Just got a call from one of my OverEasy regulars. Yesterday I was coming out of back-to-back versions of the same song, “Blinded by the Light” by Springsteen and Manfred Mann, and I said something to the effect of “92.3 WTTS, World Class Rock A to Z…guys, it’s DEUCE. As in TWO. Knock it off.”
This listener was watching Jeopardy last night, and one of the categories was – you guessed it – misheard song lyrics, including my little example. (Other examples included the CCR one, “there’s a bathroom on the right,” and Jimi Hendrix’s ever-popular “‘scuse me while I kiss this guy!”)
Sometimes it’s really creepy to be ahead of the curve like that.
