I understand mishearing Purple Haze... but some lyrics are crystal clear, and yet people mishear them and butcher songs into incongruous, absurd messes. I blame shitty 128 kbps mp3's, and shitty laptop speakers...
Sometimes I wonder if I understand english better than native speakers because I am not subjectively limited by a particular accent or dialect, therefore forced to try harder.
I didn't realise that the Purple Haze mistake was so common until I had an argument with my best friend about it and had to look it up on the internet. Only since being told about it can I hear 'kiss this guy' before I always just heard the correct lyrics.
