PALM BEACH, Fla. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – If you think the lyrics to Jimi Hendrix’s “Purple Haze” say something about kissing a guy, you’re not alone.

According to Eric Barberio of kissthisguy.com, an archive of funny misheard lyrics submitted by users, tons of people think the part where Hendrix sings excuse me, while I kiss the sky actually goes excuse me, while I kiss this guy.

Barberio says “Purple Haze” is one of the most commonly misheard ditties, hence the forum’s namesake.

But the botched songs don’t end there.

Barberio says the cool wind in my hair line in the Eagles’ “Hotel California” often gets misheard as Cool Whip in my hair, while several parts of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” get equally screwed up.

Modern music is also prone to bizarre variations, like when Barberio encountered a young woman who thought the chant in Rhianna’s “Please Don’t Stop The Music” went: I’m a slave, I’m a slave to Microsoft.
