In "Gimme Some Slack," one of the best songs on my favorite Cars album (Panorama):

The seven floors of walkup
The odor musted cracks

...seems to come out as...

The Southern boy's a warrior
He knows he must subtract

At the end of "Incense And Peppermints," when they repeat the title of the song, it sounds like...

Insects, half a man

...which to me adds meaning to the song.

What the heck does "on the grey" even mean?

I was listening to the Rod Stewart version of "Twistin' the Night Away".

When he sang "He's dancin' with the chick in slacks" I thought he was saying "He's dancin' with the chicken slats".
