@Wendy Raines Milennials AND idiots who believe what they see on the internets, without doing their own research, checking sources, and cross-referencing.
(Sorry. All of that used to be considered 'research,' but nowadays people think 'Google it' is enough.)
What about 'Baby Come Back' by player. I knew it wasn't by Hall and Oates only because the DJ pointed out the similarity in the sound before it was played. Also, I've noticed that 'Cats in the Cradle' often comes up in searches as being by Cat Stevens, not Harry Chapin. I'm assuming because it's an acoustic tune and the word 'cat' is in the name of the tune. Also, I've known people who thought 'Beach Baby' by First Class was by the Beach Boys
Since you brought up a song and 2 acts from the 1960’s, what about “There Coming to Take Me Away, Ha-Haaa!” by Napoleon XIV being confused for a Mother’s Of Invention (Frank Zappa) song or any other novelty song from that time, anyway (“A double cheeseburger, onion rings and a LARGE ORANGE DRINK!”)
America sound nothing like Neil Young -- besides the fact that their lyrics are garbage, they are a vocal harmony group (a bit like the Indigo Girls much later, I guess, only the IGs can write) while Neil Young is a solo singer-songwriter. Maybe someone mistook them for CS&N(&Y) but not with anything Neil Young did as a solo performer, where his harmonists were usually female (e.g. Nicolette Larson, Linda Ronstadt).
Also, I never heard of anyone mistaking Stealer's Wheel for Bob Dylan. It's blues-folk; it doesn't sound much like any Dylan song. And the voice is nothing like his, even in the 70s.
The "g" in burgeoning is pronounced as a "j", guys.
I'm curious about who would actually wrongfully attribute any of these songs, especially since so many were on the radio, where they would be identified by DJ's.
The song. I love the flower girl is by the cowhills. Not The Beach Boys Even though I thought it was when I heard the song in dumb and dumber and found out it wasn’t The Beach Boys. Though the vocal sounds like The Beach Boys. Brian Wilson
WHO in the hell thinks Creep is NIrvana? Sounds NOTHING like Cobain...AT ALL
Teenage Dirtbag? I love that track, but that guy sounds NOTHING like Rivers voice from Weezer....who the hell thought that?
I Swear? Granted, I was alive and a teenager when that came out, but Boyz to Men? Get the hell outta here....sounds not even close to Boyz to Men
The America thing I get....it does sound like Neil if you dont know the song
Warrior sounds NOTHING like Pat Benetar....who are these people?
Ok ok also, who in the hell doesn't know that stealers wheel sung that song? This list, as most of Mojo's list, are complete BS! Weezer? Pearl jam? Alanis Morrisette? Give me a break! I'm sure I'll have some more issues with this list...
Pffft! Just post the first few Led Zeppelin albums. Also, get your facts straight. STP wrote "Creep" after Kurt wrote "Negative Creep" many years before. Derp! And who thinks the America song was Neil Young? Oh. 99% of the radio listening community. Anyone who is really into music would know or quickly figure it out. Overall a poor post.
The only one even close was Patty Smyth/Pat Benatar. How about John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band being mistaken for Springsteen doing On The Darkside? I thought so when I first heard it. Until I went looking for it and found out. Who cares if one boy band sounds like another? They all sound like trash to me. One Disco song sounds like all the rest of them! Garbage (no, not the band)! Like the rest of this f---ed up top 10!
The only one I’m having a huge problem with is Teenage Dirtbag...I’m not saying I’ve ever confused any of these artist but, I could see if you’re just a casual radio listener or something but...if you’ve ever hear either Wheatus or Weezer, how could you mix them up? The singers are absolutely nothing alike!
For the longest time I thought the Corrs' song 'Breathless' was sung by Shania Twain... which is a legitimate mistake because the song was co-written and produced by Shania's then-husband Robert John “Mutt” Lange and sounded like it was written with Shania in mind.
I just spotted something interesting regarding the Thelma Houston/Donna Summer one.
Houston's "Don't leave me this way" is mis-credited as being sung by Donna Summer, and this video shows clips of "Don't leave me this way", and Summer's rendition of "I feel love". Both of these songs were later chart entry covers by The Communards.
This list is pretty ridiculous, the songs I was familiar with I only knew from the original artist and was never even aware someone more famous had covered them or were confused as the artist. There are many songs that could have been included and would have made so much more sense such as Hurt by Johnny Cash/Nine Inch Nails or I Will Always Love You by Whitney Houston/Dolly Parton
What about John Cafferty's 'On the Dark Side' sounding like Bruce Springsteen? Or The Hollies 'Long Cool Woman In A Black Dress' sounding like CCR? I don't know anyone who thought 'Don't Worry, Be Happy' was by Marley.
This list seems like a concept that hooked the editorial staff, despite the fact that no one could come up with many songs that actually get confused for one another except for, "Stuck in the Middle with You."
Here's a good watchmojo list...
...songs you think were sung by a black artist.
"What You Do For Love" by Bobby Caldwell
"They Don't Know" by Jon B
"Lowdown" by Boz Scaggs
I even thought Smashmouth was a black band!
Why celebrate LGBT Pride? The history of oppression for LGBT persons has centered around notions of appropriateness/normality and invisibility. LGBT persons have often lost their families, their friends, their employment and their lives because others have deemed the way they love to be inappropriate or abnormal. Our society has a strong sense of gendered normality: Men do x and women do Y. Indeed, who we are allowed to love has historically been linked to that which is deemed appropriate for our gender. When an individual chooses to live with integrity, as an authenticate person, despite the societal dangers of doing so, they exemplify Pride; that is worthy of celebration. The freedom possessed by todays lgbt students was made possible by the courage and strength of individuals who refused to feel shame for who they were and Who lived authentically and openly, winning straight allies along the way. Instead of lamenting the paucity of role models living authentically when we, as educators, were in school, perhaps we are called to be the role model we wished we had had! Now, and every day, is the time for Pride!

May 22nd is Education Support Professionals Day!!
As educators, we know the crucial role played by the thousands of paraprofessionals, office workers, bus drivers, custodians and maintenance staff in our schools and/or Community Colleges. In fact, it would be difficult to imagine a school going for one day without ESPs.
When we talk about strengthening our schools, we need to strengthen everyone who works within them. Along with recruiting and retaining quality teachers, we must recruit and retain quality education support professionals. To do that, it certainly means providing decent wages and benefits to the people who spend their days making sure our students are safe, well fed and learning.
