So, once again, I'm back with Weird Niche Wednesday and I'm loving this one.
You've heard of websites that publish lyrics to common songs, right? Well, today I discovered Misheard Music Lyrics.
It all started, innocently enough, on Facebook. My husband said “Come look at this.” Since he was at the computer, it was safe to assume that he meant “I found something funny.”
So I came over to see what he was up to.
He said “You know the Pearl Jam song, Yellow Ledbetter, right? Nobody seems to have figured out the real lyrics. And Eddie Vedder hasn't released them. So, this guy put together a video of what he THINKS the song says.”
And, then he clicked play. I laughed my butt off.
Here it is…
“Potato Wave” is my favorite part. 🙂
So, anyway, after that, I did some searching for misheard lyrics. I found a few sites and also an author who's published a series of books of misheard music lyrics, as you'll see below.
Is this a profitable niche?
Well, maybe. I think it could be profitable as part of a greater niche, for sure. The competition doesn't appear to be nearly as strong as in other niches I've researched (as far as their profitability). But, the number of searches doesn't appear to be very high for either “misheard lyrics” or for it's fancy name “Mondegreen” – yes, there's an official name for Misheard Lyrics. Who'da thunk it?
So, what are the lessons that I learned from this niche?
1. Viral video marketing works. I loved that video and here it is on my blog.
2. Perhaps adding this niche as a small part of one of your existing sites could help to draw traffic to that site. I don't think I'd set up a site strictly on this topic, personally.
3. While funny is good and it can bring traffic, it doesn't always make money.
4. This may be a cool way to make some money on Zazzle as a t-shirt seller if you use your creativity.

Share your thoughts.
I'd love it if you'd share your favorite Misheard Lyrics. Mine was “I fight with Dorothy and Dorothy always wins” instead of “I fight authority and authority always wins” by John Cougar Mellencamp. But, those of you who have followed me awhile already know that. (It's Nik trivia time.) 🙂
Share your thoughts please. I'll be watching for your comments.
