Quiz: How well do you know Evanescence’s lyrics?
Supposedly we retain information in different ways depending on how we take it in. You’re more likely to remember details if you write them down than if you just read them, for instance, a tip teachers have been trying to push onto exam students for aeons.
Repetition is also important, of course. Millions of us could effortlessly reel off endless catchphrases from ads or quote iconic comedy scenes verbatim. If you just hear something, though, does how it’s sung affect how it stays in your head?
What we’re really saying is, why does everyone know the rap bit from Bring Me To Life better than the beautifully sung bits from other Evanescence songs? Something to think about while tackling this quiz, anyway.
