We’ve already taken a look at seven misheard lyrics from Eurovision 2015, but y’all had so many great suggestions that we had to put together a list of seven more. So regardless of whether they’re caused by the singer not enunciating well enough or by the listener not really paying attention, here are seven more lyrical moments that had us thinking, “Wait, what?!”
7 More Misheard lyrics of Eurovision 2015
1. Belgium – “Rhythm Inside”
What we heard: “They hide that beach within each other”
Correct lyric: “The heart that beats within each other”
It’s so annoying – you’re having a nice day at the beach with your special sweetie, then – hello! – the swimsuits come off and you get a little amorous. But when you get home you keep finding sand everywhere. Everywhere. Y’all well and truly hid that beach within each other. The line can be heard at 1:42.
2. Iceland – “Unbroken”
What we heard: “Dubstep at a time”
Correct lyric: “One step at a time”
With the quiet start to the song, María sneaks in a tribute to dubstep. This leaves the audience fondly recalling former ESC dubstep entries. There’s “Igranka”, Montenegro’s amazing but ill-fated 2013 entry, and then the two that more successfully used dubstep elements in 2014 – Armenia’s “Not Alone” and Hungary’s “Running”. Thanks for sparking such good memories, María! The line can be heard at 0:07.
3. Czech Republic – “Hope Never Dies”
What we heard: “My slut go, my slut fade away”
Correct lyric: “Must let go, must let fade away”
It’s pretty clear that this is a misheard lyric because there’s no way that Marta would let Vaclav deliver a line like this. She’d throw more than her shoes at him. But still, we like to imagine Vaclav as a poetic caveman. The line can be heard at 2:03.
4. Malta – “Warrior”
What we heard: “Never look back, the pasta’s depressed”
Correct lyric: “Never look back, the past is the past”
You know how it is. You go to make some dinner and the pasta is all miserable, like “I’m not in the mood tonight. 🙁 I just want to watch Game of Thrones and eat ice cream.” Dammit, pasta. When that happens, give the pasta some space, don’t look back, and just get a pizza delivered. The line can be heard at 2:10.
5. Switzerland – “Time to Shine”
What we heard: “I live in Madrid, I’ve never been so alive”
Correct lyric: “I’m living my dreams, I’ve never been so alive”
Madrid is a great city – Spain’s capital, the birthplace of Edurne and the location of Måns Zelmerlöw’s recent hot fashion shoot. But is it also where Mélanie René would secretly like to shine? As Mélanie surely knows, while Geneva is nice, Madrid is just that much hotter. The line can be heard at 0:56.
6. Greece – “One Last Breath”
What we heard: “I’m farting tears and fears apart”
Correct lyric: “I’m fighting tears and fears apart”
This isn’t the first time a fart has slipped into a Eurovision 2015 song, as Michele from San Marino knows with his “chain of farts”. Maria Elena’s fart has some impressive power, with the ability to separate tears and fear with just a quick parp. The line (but not the fart) can be heard at 1:40.
7. Latvia – “Love Injected
What we heard: “The day, the night, split together side boob”
Correct lyric: “The day/The night/Split/To cure the sight, Oh…”
Aminata’s red gown might have come eighth in the Barbara Dex Award, but did the inspiration for its show-stopping design come from the misheard lyrics? Just as the lyrics say, there is a split down the middle of that dress, revealing a bit of side boob. The line can be heard at 0:25.
