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'?!"

^^^ 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.

Stevan Stationers
Fake Stevdan Stationers across the street at their old location, I think

they even changed their name to STEVEN STATIONERS

Irae Louvin (James Redd and the Blecchs), Wednesday, 4 December 2019 20:43 (eight months ago) link

they have a permanent sale of 50% off on everything, only it is 50% of a grossly inflated retail price. It is the Sam Goody’s of Stationery.

One wrote The Exorcist, one directed it, can never remember which is which as they're both called William. Now Bill Blatty I could have differentiated, but it was not to be.

Gene Clark and Guy Clark. I'm sure that makes no sense to anyone familiar with both. But I've never heard Guy Clark, so whenever I see him mentioned, I always have to remind myself that he's a different guy than Gene Clark.

I can see this, but it took me several decades to fully apprehend that the English bespectacled actor and talk show presence and panto star Christopher Biggins was not the Sydney bespectacled actor and talk show presence and revue director/performer Jonathan Biggins
