    George Orwell and Orson Welles. I always have to think twice, which one is which (or who is who?), when I talk about one of them. :D

    I know the answers here, and Love alot of both their catalogs. But it is beyond me why ANYONE would have told The Guess Who that “Laughing” was a song worth recording. Horrible drivel.....

    I thought for many years that Steely Dan did Baker Street.

    Joy to the World, No Sugar Tonight, I just can’t keep them straight, but that’s just me.

    Sometimes I get Mrs. Miller confused with Buck Owens....







    But usually I just get Mae West mixed up with Jim Morrison...







    However, I NEVER, EVER confuse Telly Savalas with Johnny Cash!

  11. Every hair band on MT during the 80’s as well as every other band that came out in the 90’s. Come to think of it i can point out Elvis even with bad sound samples, the Beatles on occasion. My wife’s voice is probably the only one i never confuse with anyone else. She is singular and unique. And rocks!

    I always say Edgar Winter when I mean Johnny, and vice versa. I have the same problem with Matthew and Gunnar Nelson, but fortunately that hasn’t come up in a while.

    I originally thought "Do it Again" was Santana!

    I'm always confused between the Ohio Express and the Cowsills works of art.

    Please, leave me in the dark and confused, please.

    For me it’s Toad the wet sprocket and Gin Blossoms. I even learned a bunch of their songs thinking it would help....nope. To this day I still guess.

    Petty covered The Byrd's "Feel A Whole Lot Better. Hadn't really heard it in decades as worn out old records sound like platypus snot. Brought tears to my eyes.

    First time I heard The Swinging Blue Jeans' "Hippy Hippy Shake", I could've sworn it was The Beatles. They were the 2nd best band to come out of Liverpool.

    Not to mention the Knickerbockers' "Lies"... a straight up cop of the fab four style at the time. Musically, they were true Beatles doppelgangers on this tune.

    As a young boy, I used to confuse John, Paul, George and Ringo. Took me years to be able to name them correctly on pictures. There were little pictures to be seen in France by the mid 70s. Even less with all four names clearly matching their positions on pictures...
