Sometimes Behaves So Strangely


I listened to a great RadioLab podcast called “Musical Language”. I won’t spoil the first segment for you, so I suggest just listening to an audio snippet.

Sometimes Behaves So Strangely.

Now go back and listen to the snippet again. How does the first sentence seem different now than before? For more discussion on this and how language and music interoperate, check out the podcast and the researcher behind the audio snippet:

  1. I saw the title of this post in some search results (searching on “radioloab”) and the “sometimes behaves so strangely” jingle magically and immediately reappeared in my head, months after I first heard it 🙂

    Radiolab is so good. Thanks for the reminder!
