I used to get Neil Sedaka and Barry Manilow confused.

I know one of them did 'Diana' and one of them did 'Oh Carol' but no idea which.

Gary Pettis and Gary Redus. Both outfielders: Pettis played from 1982-1992, Redus from 1982-1994.
Pettis was a much better defender, Redus a much better hitter. They just missed playing together in Texas towards the end of their careers.

Apologies for the duplication - Curran is playing in Glasgow this month and I couldn’t remember if I’d seen him before - but no, it was Lucier I’d seen previously.

Lee Greenwood/Lee Hazlewood

Whenever I see the credit for God Bless the USA I think for a split second, "Wait, the guy who wrote 'Some Velvet Morning'?!"

― Fedora Dostoyevsky (man alive), Monday, March 5, 2018 9:28 AM (one year ago) bookmarkflaglink

^^^ this for me but in reverse — whenever I hear people singing the praises of Lee Hazlewood I'm like "Wait, the guy who wrote 'God Bless The USA'?!"

Jena and Erfurt. Going from Berlin to Frankfurt/Main it is Jena first and then Erfurt. I always mix them up.

I think I wouldn't confuse them anymore if I would visit at least one of them but I always drive past.
