I imagine most of you recognize that song and the movie scene it comes from. It’s pretty famous, dare I say iconic. Growing up in a house with younger siblings, I’ve seen it a million times. Yet somehow, even though I’ve spent a decent chunk of time on the radio and in recording studios, I’ve never asked myself a very obvious question. How the hell can you hear those two singing so clearly while they’re up in the open sky like that? Unless that magic carpet boasts some crazy good noise reduction among its powers (not entirely out of the question what with it being magical and all) it should actually sound more like this.
Sound is very loud, because of course it is.
