Well hello and welcome back to my wondrous blog; I’ve missed two weeks of urban wording as I’ve been away enjoying the rain and floods down in Dorset. Anyway, this week’s phrase is:
Now, this phenomenon is something I bet everyone has experienced/caused at some point:
Singing out loud while listening to music with your headphones on. Whereas the singer gets the benefit of the music, those unfortunate to be standing nearby are subjected to an unaccompanied (and invariably crappy) rendition of the song.
See? On the bus, tube or train, this is definitely an occasional occurrence.
Here’s the example given by the Dictionary:
I wish that guy would turn his iPod off – his a crapella version of “Bohemian Rhapsody” is killing me.
‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ is the worst for a crappela-ing; people always try to imitate the ‘Galileo (Galileo) etc.’ moment and it goes wrong every time. Every time. Tbh though, it’s pretty tricky to beat Freddie Mercury on vocals.
More next week.
That is all.
