Mistaken the line in Volcano instead " something in you wants to blow" ... I heard it as "something in your mouth to blow"  :-\

In Volcano ...

When Bono sings 'above a volcano', it just sounds to me he has got a serious stutter going and he says:

"a a a volcano"

Plus I hear in EBW that the 'dogs are on heat'

In Ultraviolet I sometimes hear "Don't you buy it baby" instead of Ultraviolet.

Briefly upon listening to Crystal Ballroom for the first time:

Instead of 'we're ghosts of love' I heard it as 'we go solo'.  ;D

Speaking of Crystal Ballroom:
In the "buttoning unbuttoning her Coco dress" part
I hear "buttoning unbuttoning her cocoa dress".

Was listening to Rattle and Hum today and remembered one: For the longest time, I thought "She's the dollars" was "She's the goddess" in "Desire".

Wait, it's not Goddess? I'm just going to keep singing it wrong.


At the Charlottesville show, he definitely said "in your bed" instead of head, in One. But I can't remember if he said lepers or Leopards. . Which amuses me every time it comes up on the shuffle. 

And, really, the actual lyric is "you act like you've never had love"? ...I still hear "You act like you've never had none, and you want me to go without".

Granted, I sing and hear most lyrics wrong.

Also, the image of Leopards romping around a bed always come into my head when One comes on.

Well, you heard right. I gather you like chocolate!  ;)
