Oops! 9 Popular Songs with Recording Errors

Here’s a collection of music genres that you normally wouldn’t think go together. But, there’s one thing in common with these big music icons; they all make mistakes. The culprit could be the piano, someone’s vocals, or the editing done after. With the amount of people that view the videos before they are released, bloopers are a rarity. However, some mistakes do make it through. ¬† ¬†Capitalizing on that, here are nine with some mishap gold. Let’s see how many you recognize.

1. Panic! At the Disco РI Write Sins Not Tragedies 

At 2:14 take a closer listen at the word “haven’t.”

2. The Police – Roxanne

In the beginning of the song, Sting accidentally sits on the piano. You can hear him laugh after.

3. War – Why Can’t We Be Friends?

The piano hits a wrong note at the start of this song. But, carries on like a proffessional.

4. Christina Aguilera – Beautiful

Does the phrase don’t cry over spilt milk apply to an accidentally dropped beat? Aguilera’s head phones can be heard for a few moments starting at 3:45.

5. James Blunt – You’re Beautiful

Accidents happen, sometimes four bars too early. But, Blunt’s back was turned and his crew went with it.

6. The Kingsmen – Louie Louie

Early vocal mishap once again. At 1:55. It was only one word. But, it still made a statement.

7. M.I.A. – Paper Planes

There’s a pop before every chorus. The question is: is it really supposed to be there?

8. Red Hot Chili Peppers – The Zeyphr Song

There’s a barely catchable vocal blip at 3:01.

9. Megadeth – Paranoid

This song has some unintended conflict at the end. The drummer keeps on going, and the singer isn’t too happy about it, to say the least… He can be heard shouting NICK NICK!! (Their drummer is Nick Menza).
