The Clairvoyance of Def Leppard

We are always amused by people getting lyrics wrong.  We can cite many examples.  But that is not the point of this post.  This is kind of a "retro-fit" misunderstood lyric.  Lest you chastise us later, we are fully aware of what the actual lyric is, and if you are not, well, we love you anyway.

While we would never confuse Def Leppard with Nostradamus, their "Hysteria" album came out in 1987, long before the smart phone.  Yet in the first verse of "Pour Some Sugar on Me", they mention the iPhone.

Don't believe me?  Listen to it.  Tell me the lyric is not "livin' like a lover with a red iPhone".

If nothing else, you'll never hear the song the same way again.

Here it is, for your listening enjoyment.

You're welcome.
