How well do you know your classics?

How well do you know your classics?

You may or may not be aware of the phenomenon where people remember something incorrectly, but their recollection becomes the accepted version.

It's actually got a name - the "Mandela effect" - which was coined by a paranormal enthusiast.

She was convinced that Nelson Mandela had died in Robben Island prison in the 1980s – when in fact he died in 2013 at his home in Houghton.

But it's not the only example of the brain distorting memories.

And when you start digging, you will be amazed at the number of collective bad memories out there.

Here are a selection of the biggest memory blunders:

Billy Ray Cyrus

Well known song, but is it... (Photo: Youtube)

You'll recall the song Achy Breaky Heart which of course goes, "Don't break my heart, my achy breaky heart" - except it doesn't. The lyric is, "Don't TELL my heart, my achy breaky heart".

Annie the Musical

Annie has some hard to remember lyrics it seems

You think the song goes, "It's a hard knock life for us," when it's actually, "It's THE hard knock life..."

The Story of the Three Little Pigs

The famous line, "I'll Huff and I'll Puff and blow your house DOWN" has always been, "I'll Huff and I'll Puff and Blow your House IN".

E.T. The Movie

E.T. - The Extra-Terrestrial
E.T. - The Extra-Terrestrial - has some iconic moments

In the ET never says, "E.T. phone home". It's always been, "E.T. home phone".

Toy Story

Toy Story
Fans of this movie might have misremembered the words in the script

Woody's catchphrase, "There's a snake in my boot" is actually, "There's a snake in my boots".

Star Wars episode 4

Darth Vader The Empire Strikes Back

Iconic moment, right, certain? Darth Vadar says to Skywalker: "Luke, I am your Father". In fact, movie fans, the line has always been, "NO, I am your Father".

The statue of The Thinker

Subject of lots of memes (Photo: Rex Features)

In the hit film Morpheus tells Neo, "What if I told you," in introduction to the Matrix, and it's inspired a thousand memes, except he doesn't. The line isn't in any of the Matrix films.
