Was listening to music this morning, and found 2 new MEs..


I remember Tina Turner singing "Hard For The Money" - now its' Donna Summers.



Also, in the song "She's A Maniac", it used to say:

"She's a maniac, maniac I know - and she's dancing [...]"

Now it's:

"She's a maniac, maniac on the floor - and she's dancing [...]"

...and it sounds very weird.



The lyrics do say "I sure know" - that was a build up from "I know" that used to be in the song. Here are the lyrics:



Just a steel town girl on a Saturday night
Looking for the fight of her life
In the real time world no one sees her at all
They all say she's crazy
Locking rhythm to the beat of her heart
Changing movement into light
She had danced into the danger zone
When the dancer becomes the dance
It can cut you like a knife
If the gift becomes the fire
On the wire between will and what will be
She's a maniac, maniac on the floor
And she's dancing like she's never danced before
She's a maniac, maniac on the floor
And she's dancing like she's never danced before
On the ice blue line of insanity
Is a place most never see
It's a hard won place of mystery
Touch it but can't hold it
You work all your life, for that moment in time
It could come or pass you by
It's a push shove world
But there's always a chance
If the hunger stays the night
There's a cold connective heat
Struggling stretching for the peak
Never stopping with her head against the wind
She's a maniac, maniac I sure know
And she's dancing like she's never danced before
She's a maniac, maniac I sure know
And she's dancing like she's never danced before
It can cut you like a knife
If the fight becomes the fire
On the wire between will and what will be
She's a maniac, maniac I sure know
And she's dancing like she's never danced before
She's a maniac, maniac I sure know
And she's dancing like she's never danced before
Maniac, maniac I sure know




Lot's of other folks remember Tina Turner singing "Hard For The Money" - enough that Google tries to auto complete it for you.

However, it's always been the way it is now.

Be nice please.

Nop, pretty sure it was always maniac on the floor.

The ME thing should be renamed to Bad Memory Effect.

Sorry friend, although I've had a couple Mandela moments, I clearly remember "on the floor" as they lyric.

Also, "Hard for the Money" came out during the disco dance craze, which was the Donna Summer era, not Tina Turner. Although I could not have called up from memory who sang that song, I would have chosen Donna Summer on a multiple choice test, so this one does not surprise me.

I remember this song as a kid and I thought it was always " I know" too. Now you have the song stuck in my head for the rest of the day. Thanks...……….

That's the beauty of the ME. If you remember it "differently" then you were obviously unaffected or from a different time line. There's no point in arguing.

I'm still interested in your Ministry ME.

Please post soon.

Okay, I read through and thought "Yeah, likely bad memory from decades ago" but hearing the "Flashdance Song" (as I remember it) WAS weird! I, too, remember hearing "you know" , or at least some lyrics that sounded like that, through the ofttimes poor car audio equipment of my teen years, and this way sounds jarringly different.

So ... perhaps better audio equipment allows us to differentiate lyrics? I admit I hated that song as pop filth and never heard it through decent equipment... but ... the whole cadence of that verse sounds different to me, too.

But it was Donna Summer in my universe.

More misheard/misremembered song lyrics. Proving yet again what a terrible memory the OP has.

How can anyone not tell how different Tina Turner sounds to Donna Summer?

Perhaps as well as having a terrible memory the OP has hearing issues too?

A Ministry ME? As in the bad-arse (elderly) band from Chicago? If so, I'm interested and could identify any variances with ease... so me too.

I remember Tina Turner singing 'You hit me hard, honey' in a song about Ike. We had no 'Donna Sommers' but there was a Madonna Sommers.

this. some of my favorite musical soundtracks i had on tape in my car as a teenager sound very different now on remastered blu-rays or high quality mp3s. poor audio equipment distorts lyrics too, and the fact that there's a similar lyric later in the song is very suggestive of a failure of memory... which is nothing to be ashamed of, or need to go to such elaborate lengths to explain away.

i would suggest OP talk to his doctor about his memory issues in case there's an underlying medical explanation, but he's due to abandon the thread in 3...2...1...

Maybe you thought Tina Turner because this?

www.songfacts.com...


Donna Summer was the first black female played on MTV and SWHFTM was the first video played in heavy rotation by a black female (1983). She was also the first to have her videos played in consistent heavy rotation, as she had the stations support. Tina Turner and the Pointer Sister followed her in having their videos played in consistent heavy rotatio


Cause as far as I know that song was not Tina Turner.

And ya know when it comes to song lyrics...there's lots of songs i've thought I knew the right words to but when I actually looked them up or seen them turns out i'd been wrong about a word here or there.

In the case of this song both the lyrics you mention are in the song. It's not a Mandela effect it's your brain only remembering one of the choruses.

More "Memory Effect" in action.....Tina Turner never sang "She Works Hard For the Money"

That was always Donna Summer's song......at least around my parts....Perhaps Tina had it as a cover on an album once.

But not the Hit, played on the Radio.

I believe in the Mandela Effect. But I'm sure these 2 are still correct.

Nope. It was Donna Summer and "On the Floor." You're just remembering incorrectly.

Tina Turner has a very unique voice that can't be mistaken for anyone else. She definitely did not sing "Hard for the Money."

Always been Donna Summers and it's always been on the floor. Is it too hard to admit you're wrong?

Anyone that believes in this pathetic mandela effect probably supports the flat earth theory...it is beyond idiotic... just my educated opinion

Always seems to be some small, easy to mishear words, misunderstood and repeated by others or items subject to changes over time. How about something on a grander scale. Oh right, it doesn't happen in the bigger picture.

Guess the timelines can't get too far apart.
