    Having never had a copy of Powerslave until a few years after first seeing LAD on VHS I was puzzled as to why Bruce sang "through the fuckin ice." It didnt seem very Maiden to me. The moment I got Powerslave on cassette I went straight to that line on the sleeve. Ahhhh, fog and ice, FOG and ice....much more Maiden...

    In the first time that i heard Fear of the Dark, i was sure that "the unknown troubles on your mind" were "criando troubles on your mind", which translates to "making troubles on your mind"...it made sense (although there were no reason to Maiden use a portuguese word in the middle of the main song of the album. I mean, before Como Estais Amigos)

    Exodus "funeral hymn" first line of chorus i thought was "concrete the reaper"; turns out it is "come greet the reaper"

    "All around us: Angry Birds
    Guide the future by the past
    Long ago the mould was cast

    For they marched up to Bastille Day
    La guillotine claimed her bloody prize
    Hear the echoes of the centuries
    Power isn't all that money buys..."

    Aces_High Gathering speed as I head down the runway

    Women and children and cows attack

    Moving to fire the mainstream Obamas

    The evil that men do is all I know

    Tell me why I had to beat a powerslave

    When I was living this lie, fear was my game.

    Just a few Smarties between someone happy and one sad

    Headlong in this longest day

    Take you and your blade and break your bones
    in two - break your balls in too.

    Chain up the demons set free
    Stranger to me

    Didn't this do the rounds as an urban myth for some time?

    Listening to Brave New World happens to be a mondegreen treat.

    Apart from

    "Cannibals live by the waves
    Nowhere left to run - alligator son!"


    There's also

    "Well done, Miss;
    House of pain
    Makes no sense of it all"


    And

    "Nooooomaaaads, you're the riders of hysteeeeeeriaaaaaaa"

    You can't have "misheard" Kiss as much as this anyway: :D


    . When I was only two years into learning English, this is what the chorus of "The Clairvoyant" sounded like to me: "And he takes the lift, and he flies to die / and it's time to meet Jamaica". :facepalm:
