Back during a Catch up last week, some fans thought Tomomi was singing "Everybody living in the city" instead of "Living, living, living in the city". Mami also said that there was a hashtag on Instagram for misheard Scandal lyrics.

So I'll start.
Song - Tokyo Skycraper
Actual Lyrics - Touch me, darling
I heard - Push me, daddy
If the song was about a playground swing that would be okay. On a skyscraper, a little disturbing.

Japanese lyrics are cool, too, if you know Japanese. Just tell us in English what the actual and misheard lyrics mean.

 Misheard SCANDAL Lyrics 1f605 ngl, the misheard lyrics actually made sense to me so I never questioned them. Scandal lyrics are almost always about positivity so I thought it was just their way of saying "even if you mess up, things will work out right"  Misheard SCANDAL Lyrics 1f602 made so much more sense after I finally looked the lyrics up LOL


Love Survive 
Actual: oh my darling
Misheard: oh my diary

Funny, I thought of starting a similar thread a while ago because I always hear "Push me, daddy" in TOKYO SKYSCRAPER.

I read the title and thought of tokyo skyscraper before reading your post lol.
Back when I started with scandal, I missheard it as "Touch me daddy, kiss me daddy" and hated it, had to check the lyrics because it was disturbing  Misheard SCANDAL Lyrics 1f606

Edit: I still hear Living in the living. No official lyrics can change that, sorry.

First lines of first chorus.

Also from Uchiagehanabi.

There's a part, that isn't written in lyrics. I assume (correct me, if I'm wrong here), that it's supposed to be "Boom boom boom fireworks", but I still hear it as "Boom boom boom fire box".

Haha— this line is a lift from Bob Marley's "No Woman No Cry"—even the rhythm is the same... I'm sure Marley would never have said "every sin's gonna be alright!"


Haru sings Tomomi's beautiful song Mado wo aketara very clearly, but in the refrain "Baby, touch my heart" no matter how I try to hear it right, I always hear "baby you touch my heart."
It seems Japanese lyricists take advantage of the tendency to mishear—playing with words that sound similar in English and Japanese. (correct me if I'm wrong in these examples)
Like when they sing "Ai wana yuu" in Queens are trumps it sounds like "I want/wanna you" but the words also sound like "love," "trap," and "evening" in Japanese.
In Kill the Virgin you have a line that starts "I wonder" (English) and ends "ai ga nanda" (what is love?-Japanese)... the next line begins "nani ittenda" (which could be Japanese "what are you doing?") and ends "love me tender" (English—a famous line by Elvis Presley).. in the Rock In Japan 2013 live you can even see a male staffer smiling when Tomo sings that line)
I'm sure SCANDAL is not the only band that's played with this word "ai" ("I" English, "love" Japanese)

From intro to Haruka, there's
"Haruka hanareteite mo"

But I can't help it, I always hear it as
"Haruka hanareteite mu".

In Shoujo M when Mami sings "Tabun, tabun", I hear/think "Baboon, baboon"...

And then there's "Happy Collector" which has a line that always hilariously sounded like "Johnny Depp sexy boy".

Turns out, though, that that's exactly what it is saying...

Your song -english version-

Actual lyrics : "Even if there's a rainbow in the sky."
What i heard : "Even if there's a Label in the sky"

Well, its kinda hard for me to hear what they say on the entire song anyway



I don't want to be here.

Actual Lyrics - Motto tooku made

Of course this could be a deliberate play on words, where Japanese words sound like English. Especially since there is a mechanical motif to the lyrics.
