Wow... I look at the stats and in the first 24 hours, hundreds of people read my previous article called "Better Ears: Voices in My Head."
So far there are very few comments, either here or via the Facebook group.
I thought we would have a bunch of people say what they are hearing. I'd made some minor edits to the original article, to encourage you to make comments. (No... not the other person reading: YOU!)
Because the reader numbers are high enough, I know 20, 30, 40 people (or more) have the words exactly right, but I scared them away. That's the last thing I want to do!
It's an exercise and I have songs that have taken me years to figure out some words. The process of listening and figuring out the words has been a major positive contribution to my music education and listening skills. (Again, try it with friends and family and report what they are hearing... you'll find it fascinating.)
My bad, because I thought this was a great example, and it's hard to find multiple versions of a tune that are with and without visuals. (The second version is easier the hear than the first, but part of that is because you're seeing the singer. If you were hearing it only, it's not as easy.)
If you don't want post a comment (either location) please feel free to send me private mail with what you're hearing (or post anonymously if you wish) and I'll verify your words. My e-mail address is at the bottom of every page.
I'm interested in your thoughts...
