I can't take it anymore. Once I have told you this it will never leave your brain so I warn you now. Once you know it can't be undone and will drive you nuts.

Why is it that musicians and singers can make millions of dollars but can't pronounce the sentence " without you" correctly. It always sounds like " without chew". When i was in 10th grade my chorus teacher pointed this out and it drives me nuts. Two of the biggest offenders:

Usher feat David Guetta - " without you"
Rihanna- stay

I think that if you make millions your singing coach or person that's tweaking your auto tune should notice this. Thanks Mrs. Benedict !!

Because it's in melody, it's not spoken. Your chorus teacher should know better.

 Rhianna says everything fucking weird.  I get she has an accent, but it's not that.  One of her songs her and Chris Brown say business repeatedly but pronounce it bidnesss.  I don't even know how to spell it where it will make sense.  :/

I have never noticed the without you, but thanks a lot I will now.  LMAO.

Lol  I notice it too. And "in your eyes" often sounds like "in your ass".

Ooooh. That drives me NUTS! I was in a choir, and that was POUNDED into our heads. "Without you" and words ending in s. "Don't make yourself sound like a snake!" LOL
