Blast from the past! Got the first six, but the other three are so well hidden in the song, I never even knew they were there.

Because I couldn't understand "that Montserrat mystique," for years I sang it as "that moldy rotten stink."

I always heard 'Montserrati steak.' Figured it was some Caribbean dish that if I was rich/cultured I'd know about.

Actually, I thought they were singing "Montserrat, Mustique" (another Caribbean island) and I couldn't figure out why the quiz was accepting Montserrat but not Mustique.

The moldy rotten stink is Port-au-Prince. Kokomo, Indiana is far more a tropical paradise than that hell hole.
