The first one was a lyric misheard by a friend of a friend of mine. He thought the correct lyric to the Kiss song, “Rock and Roll All Nite” went like this: “I wanna rock and roll all night, and part of every day.” I love that one! It seems like the sentiment of a prudent party animal – he wants to party, but he know he can’t keep going 24/7.
The other one I’ll cite here came from my late mother. Back in the 1980s, when she heard me or my brother playing the Billy Idol song, “Eyes Without a Face,” she thought the refrain began with, “How’s About a Date?” rather than the song’s title. I’ll grant her this much – her version actually makes more sense than the original, though it reflects an innocent sort of romanticism rarely found in Idol’s work.
