For years, I have made a concerted effort to protect against hearing loss; as an avid birder, hearing all the frequencies of their songs is really important. We wear ear plugs when we fly, during any concerts, and even use them during the ‘previews’ before a movie at a theater. And I rarely use headphones or earbuds to listen to music. So far, so good: according to the very cool app Mosquito, I still have the hearing of a 15 year old. If only everything else worked so well!
But I gotta admit: I just started listening to my Spotify playlists with earbuds while on run/walks, and man can I hear the lyrics of the songs so much more clearly. Something about maintaining focus on just the song? I don’t know.
But I do know now, after 40 years of having it wrong, that in the Stones song 'Satisfaction’, the lyrics are 'I can’t get no girlie action’!
Hmmm..I wonder how many more lyrics I’ve got wrong? Ha!
