    JUST LISTEN TO THE RHYTHM OF MY HEART

    IS THAT WHAT HE SAYS??

    HOW COULD YOU POSSIBLY UNDERSTAND THAT

    I listen to a lot of Gucci Mane, glam metal falsetto is nothing for me.

    like an apple in the desert
    I mean in all seriousness hip-hop lyrics tend to be under-enunciated and usually on purpose since they're meant to more clearly mimic how people actually talk, and there's often a layer of artistic abstraction on top of that (more than one if you're listening to like Busdriver or someone).

    If I can understand something like fucking "Speedom"


    quickly-sung pop metal isn't that hard for me.
  • like an apple in the desert
    no do listen to that song though because it's fucking awesome and the only good thing Eminem's been involved with since the start of the decade.
  • Hope will exist in a problematic relationship with reason
    that reminds me of the time i absolutely baffled several people in my high school chemistry course by being able to understand the lyrics in a death metal song

    the original "Worldwide Choppers" is also a great one for impressing people who don't listen to vocally challenging music.
  • like an apple in the desert
    that sounds snobbier than I intended it to.
  • I have cut a caper with the dancing mad god
    I've always had trouble being able to hear words in even non-challenging songs. It's been a theme ever since I was a child. I've gotten better about it, definitely, but in a lot of music the words tend to blend together into texture for me. 

    It's not a bad thing, but it does mean I end up googling lyrics perhaps more often than the average person when I just absolutely can't puzzle them out, but would like to know what they say.

    I'm the sort of guy who likes subtitles on everything. Vocal comprehension has never been my strong suit

    same?
  • like an apple in the desert
    I think vocal comprehension being my strong suit is one of the reasons I like hip-hop so much.

    I saw a guy perform this at a bar karaoke night to absolute perfection not too long ago. I was literally in awe.

    I feel like my lyric comprehension ability is curiously mixed. I mean, there are some situations where I'll see people transcribe a lyric as something that I know is completely off even if I can hear how they got there, but then there are other places where I just have no idea what a lyric is despite the fact that it's reasonably clear in the mix and not tragically enunciated.

    i want to clarify that i like subtitles because im easily distracted, so i have backup on things people are saying
  • Hope will exist in a problematic relationship with reason
    oh anyways i have listened to this song for the very first time, and i have to say it was in desperate need of a nightcore-ing


    good thing the internet has me covered on that
  • like an apple in the desert
    we live in a wild world
  • “His thoughts were red thoughts, and his teeth were white.”
    Hearing that, I'm thinking having a particularly hyperactive and flamboyant soprano sing that sped up version would be fucking extraordinary.
  • like an apple in the desert
    but Justin Hawkins is a hyperactive and flamboyant soprano.

  • imagei will watch the heck outta this pumpkin patch
    i'm fairly sure vocal comprehension isn't my strong suit either

    i've tried to get better at it, but my hearing isn't that great, so that doesn't help

    actually i think i've gotten worse, despite my efforts

    like when i was little i used to be really good at hearing and memorizing song lyrics, nowadays i always have to google them

    Justin Hawkins is Freddy Venus.

    It's a shame Freddy Mercury has so thoroughly overshadowed the rest of the Freddy Scouts

    No comments about how the music video for this song was basically softcore tentacle porn?
