I just wanted to pass along a funny.
As many of you know, I have been listening to songs as my hearing has been getting better and I have been trying to figure out what has changed and what has stayed the same.

I put on Handel's Messiah and listened to the aria: "For We're Like Sheep". Well, to me it still sounds like "For We Like Sheep"! I don't think that's what Handel meant.
I mentioned this to my audiologist and she got a kick out of it. She used to record with the Pittsburgh symphony and mentioned that a lot of recordings sound this way unless the director has made an explicit effort to make the singers enunciate clearly. She was pretty amused.
