Oh, the plight of the misunderstood artist, creating from his or her heart, and faced with a world blind to the dazzling artistic vision and unique statement being made.
Well yeah, but we're talking about another kind of misunderstood here today. This site is a huge compendium of mis-heard song lyrics. You can search by artist, by song, most mis-heard artist, funniest mis-heard artist, etc., etc. There's also a vast collection of musical trivia, quizzes, games, and other foolishness.

Do you like to listen to music on your computer? Check out Pandora, a great site that will create "radio stations" and choose music for you to listen to based on parameters you enter. Like Eric Clapton? It will play a selection of Clapton music and other artists in the same bluesy vein. Tiring of that, you might select a single favorite song. Pandora will present a set including this song and other music similar in genre, tempo, and outlook. You can program up to 100 different channels. It's a great way to learn about new music. Best of all, it's free.
