So, hypothetical situation. You are at an arena gig of a band you are reasonably familiar with, but not a mega fan. Let’s say you only got tickets because you’re friends sister was ill and dropped out the last minute.
Anyway, they start playing a song that you don’t know but everyone else seemingly knows every single word to.
- Pretend to sing along with exaggerated mouth movements, so everyone thinks you actually know the words
- Listen adroitly as to ascertain the lyrics and if possible, join in at the second chorus
- Not bothered, sway along with mouth firmly closed
