Brushing Juice Newton's teeth. I'm sorry can you say that again?
I misheard Juice Newton's 'Angel of the Morning' recently
'Just brush my teeth before you leave me, darling'.
Regrettably on a second listen there was more cheek touching than teeth
brushing, although I'm sure Juice values good dental hygiene.
Such mishearings are called Mondegreens. They're most often created by
a person listening to a poem or a song; the listener, being unable to
clearly hear a lyric, substitutes words that sound similar and make some
kind of sense.
Countless comedians have routines about Mondegreens, Bolton's own Peter
Kay included. And they're often discussed in the Bolton FM office.
This Saturday is another busy one for Bolton FM. Sing Big Bolton Sing
returns to the Market Place on April 22nd with the semi finals, if you
want to catch up with the competition so far tune in to the
Entertainment Fix from 4pm this Sunday.
We're supporting the Grand Final of Bolton Hospice's Strictly Learn to
Dance at the Bolton Whites hotel. It'll be hosted by Andrew Dickson and
Phil Ashcroft from "Friday Midmornings".
If you want to follow the fun from Sing Bolton Sing or the Strictly
Learn to Dance we regularly post pictures and videos onto our YouTube and Facebook
I have to go - Duffy's on the radio and she's asking for 'mercy'. Or is
it 'bird seed'?
