* Many people believe that all vocals on the {{Titanic}} soundtrack were provided by Celine Dion. She only sings "My Heart Will Go On". Every other time you hear a female voice singing it belongs to Norwegian soprano [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U5ijxAGqgp8 Sissel Kyrkjebø]].

* Creator/{{Herge}}, creator of Franchise/{{Tintin}} has a very identifiable style that has been imitated by other comic strip artists too, mostly people who worked as his assistents like Edgar P. Jacobs (''ComicBook/BlakeAndMortimer'') and Bob de Moor (''Cori de Scheepsjongen''). Both artists' work is therefore often confused with Hergé's.

** In the last season, after Lorelai has "serenaded" Luke with the Karaoke song "I will always love you", the whole town is talking about it. Luke's dippy sister Liz urges him to respond to Lorelai, saying: "It's a classic love song! It's classic Cindy Lauper!" Luke replies: "Whitney Houston!" Liz: "Whatever!" when the song is actually by Dolly Parton. (However, being super-music-geeks, the writers make sure to name-check Dolly Parton when Lorelai goes on stage to sing the song: Lane says to Rory: "I didn't know your mother was a Whitney Houston fan", and Rory replies, "I think it's Dolly-inspired, actually". And Lorelai does sing the song more in Dolly Parton's rhythm and emphasis.).

** It's a joke among musicologists that once the composer is listed as "Stradella" or "Pergolesi", there is already cause for suspicion. Many 19th century editors included pieces in their anthologies from other anthologies, which had named the source as Anonymous, and disliking such an attribution, they picked some known Baroque composer, most often Pergolesi or Stradella. Moreover, two famous arias, "Pieta, Signore" (attributed to Stradella) and "Se tu m'ami" (attributed to Pergolesi) are actually 19th century compositions in what they perceived to be antique style, by the music critic Fetis and the anthologist Parisotti. In other cases, utter disregard for the actual source results in erroneous attributions, such as "Quella fiamma che m'accende" (probably by Conti, attributed to B. Marcello).

* UsefulNotes/RonaldReagan: Often believed to have ended the UsefulNotes/ColdWar, while UsefulNotes/MikhailGorbachev is probably a more logical candidate for that title. The Russian leader made a lot of social changes in the Soviet Union and Eastern Bloc, more than any Soviet leader before him. Many notable historians such as John Lewis Gaddis suggested that the USSR was "a sandpile ready to slide" by the 1980s, whoever was in power in what country. Case in point is that the actual fall of the Berlin Wall and dissolvement of the USSR took place after Reagan left office.

* The 16th century French physician UsefulNotes/{{Nostradamus}} wrote several predictions about the future, each of them in rhyme. To this day several false predictions attributed to him can be read on the Internet. They're often easily detected, because some numbskulls try to rhyme them in the English language, rather than French.
* UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler is also a popular choice for wrongfully attributed opinions. During particularely nasty arguments people will eventually accuse their opponents of having the same viewpoint as Hitler (a phenomenon known as GodwinsLaw). This is sometimes done by baiting their opponents to agree with [[YouKnowWhoSaidThat sufficiently vague quotations]] that are implied to [[HitlerAteSugar be evil because Hitler said them]]. At other times certain opinions are attributed to Hitler even when he had nothing to do with them (i.e. this trope). For example:
** Hitler was not a socialist, nor a communist. The full name of the Nazi party was indeed "national-socialist party", but their viewpoints were way different than those of actual socialists, whom Hitler imprisoned and exterminated by the score. Hitler's politics only benefitted white people of supposedly Aryan descent and excluded everyone else, even white Germans who just happened to have a handicap or some sort of "unpure" racial heritage in their roots, a far cry from the socialist party's egalitarian ideals.
** He wasn't an atheist, nor a specifically religious man either. He just used religion to justify his own viewpoints and win people's trust, while actually suplanting their beliefs with his own personality cult. Some of the concentration camp prisoners were Christians who were too devout for Hitler's tastes; Christian youth groups, for example, where competition for the government-approved ones. Many of Jehovah's Witnesses in Germany were incarcerated, and several executed, thanks to their beliefs making them unwilling to swear loyalty to or take up arms for the Reich.

* The epigram "anti-Semitism is the socialism of fools" is often ascribed to Friedrich Engels, or other famous Communists. It was probably coined by the less well-known Austrian Socialist politican Ferdinand Kronawetter, in reference to the virulently anti-Semitic Austrian populist movement misleadingly named "Christian Socialism".

* In the ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' episode "Brian Wallows While Peter Swallows" Brian sings about Neil Armstrong, whereupon Meg confuses him with Music/LouisArmstrong: "Was he the trumpet guy?"
** Played for laughs when Brian fought to change the name of James Woods High School to Martin Luther King Jr. Peter mistakes King for Martin Landau, Martin Lawrence, Dean Martin, Martini and Rossi, Martin Sheen, Charlie Sheen, and Tom Berenger.
