Who sang what?

Sometimes you discover online something that combines two things you love and then you realize that all that procrastination was actually worth it. So for today’s pleasure combo I present to you one three Beatles infographs, charting the instrumentation of all of their songs, in their three phases.

I consider the haircut chart a bonus:

A girl with colitis goes by…

In the early days of the web, Am I Right was one of the funniest sites there was: a database of misheard lyrics. The misunderstanding of the psychedelic Beatles lyrics “A girl with kaleidoscope eyes” with the absurdist “A girl with colitis goes by” is still one of the funniest things I’ve ever heard.

And now there is a wonderful infograph by direct lyrics, to summarize the most common mistakes. Wasn’t it about time?

Adele mondegreen

By the way, Am I Right has also published a collection of misheard lyrics in Hold Me Closer, Tony Danza: And Other Misheard Lyrics.

See the full infograph after the jump.
