Researchers randomly asked people to sing Quebec’s anthem. 40 out of 42 people sounded as good as the pros.
But why couldn’t the 2 bad singers carry a tune?
Repeating the experiment, researchers asked people to sing Jingle Bells and then tested their ability to listen to some music and identify bad notes. They found that bad singers either cannot recognize the wrong notes ... or simply do not care how they sound.
