There are many ways of listening to a song. You can choose to listen to it in its entirety, as a whole meal. Or, you can choose to listen to it in bits and pieces. If you are especially faced with a song that does not excite your nerves much, you know, the kind of song that can start playing and run on until the end without you even noticing that it started playing – then this could be your listening trick.

You can, for instance, choose to listen to only the lyrics in the song. You lock the tune and beats and rhyme out of your ears, simply picking out the words. Songwriters are usually very poetic and their lyrics could be a walk through the forest of gripping verse (Nnonya Money by Red Banton).

It may be that the plot weaved by the story in a song is captivating or appealing (Bamugambe by Bebe Cool). Or, you can choose to listen to a single instrument, say the guitar or drums or organ or violin – whichever is having a field day By diverging your attention to these features on a song, you may somehow manage to avoid noticing that a musician’s song is just not up to it, that its rhyme is so musically incompatible with your system that it cannot even stick in your mind.

When listening to Viboyo’s Ajjoga, you may want to pay attention to the Bakisimba sounding Ragga drum-work. It could save you from the rest of the song.
