    One I misheard:

    "Sorry you didn't see him
    But I'm playing guitar"

    Second line should be "But I'm glad we talked"

    Pearl Jam - Alive

    I like how Bill Kirchen throws that in on the medley/silly portion of "Hot Rod Lincoln Live," around 6:15-6:25 in this clip:

    I always thought the line in Elton John's Benny & The Jets was She's got electric boobs & mohair suits.

    The Police singing "Sue Lawley, Sue Lawley...". I still struggle not to hear it like this!
    (For non-Brits and the under-45s in the audience, Sue Lawley was a BBC news anchor and presenter on the 'Nationwide' programme at the time: the programme did a feature on this apparent namechecking of their colleague, in typical early-evening after-the-news magazine style.)
