Eurythmics and Rihanna Singalong Wrongs

Eurythmics and Rihanna Top List of Most Misquoted Lyrics

A survey was recently conducted by Spotify, one of the world’s leading music channels.  Nearly 1,500 people were surveyed by the online music provider and asked what songs do they get wrong when singing along.  The Top 10 list was then completed and the list was top by EurythmicsSweet Dreams‘, Rihanna‘s ‘We Found Love‘ and surprisingly KD LangConstant Craving‘.  Now why anybody would write a song centred on dreams about cheese or one advertising Dove is beyond me, but that’s what the public said.  I personally love the common misquote of Elton John at number seven.
