Music streaming service, Spotify, just released ‘The Top 10 Most-misheard Lyrics’ and the results are anything but shocking, mostly because we make all of these lyrical mishaps on the regular. Obviously ‘Hold me closer, Tony Danza’ has made the list, surprisingly not in the number 1 spot, but it’s up there. A newer song, that we thought was sure to make the list was Rihanna’s “We found love in a hopeless place” which listeners thought that  the Grammy-winner sings “We found Dove in a soapless place” in her 2011 chart-topper, according to a UK poll. Here is the list in full and a Spotify playlist for your listening pleasure as well.

2.      ’Scuse me, while I kiss this guy / ‘Scuse me, while I kiss the sky (Jimmy Hendrix, “Purple Haze”) – 19%
