Ringer Tech: Want Perfect Pitch? (25) RE: Tech: Want Perfect Pitch? 07 Jan 14


I've an idea that I remember, half a century ago or so, seeing a report of Johnny Dankworth's defence against a charge of speeding: he was accused of driving at 40 in a 30mph limit.

He claimed that he couldn't have been going at 40, because at 40 his car sounded a B♭ whereas at the time of the offence he recalled it was sounding G# and he should know, because he had perfect pitch (the substance of the defence is correct; the actual speeds and notes I don't recollect and have made up). I think he was convicted.

Me? I'm tone deaf. I'm not even allowed to sing audibly when in the shower! "Daaad! Shut up!"
