Popular Song Lyrics – Why Do Get Them Wrong So Often?
You get the idea, it's easy to mishear song lyrics, but did you ever wonder why?
With a lot of songs, the music can drown out the lyrics. So the noise that hits our ears has to be decoded to be understood. Science says that if your brain can't initially comprehend a lyric, if offers up an alternative to quickly solve the problem, and that rendition can stick in your head, even once you learn the correct lyrics.
Also, just knowing the wrong version of the lyrics can prime your brain to hear them instead of the correct ones.
They're funny and who couldn't use a laugh on the weekend!
