Hi Antonio...Antonio said:Hi Group,
What does "High note" means? and I read this week in the newspaper something that I wanna quote about this article "I'm leaving on a high note"
Antonio said:But why do you said "High Note", I don't get it. This is common to say or hear in spoken English or not?
Well, you are not telling the other person to change the subject. You are also not asking for permission to change the subject. You simply are changing the subject. On a different note, my feet are cold.Antonio said:Ahhh ok, now I understand, why the "high note" yes, you're right and it really make sense to me now. So, "On a different note" means to "change the subject" or "can we change the subject"
Yes, they mean the same thing."Can we get off the subject" and "Can we drop the subject" means the same thing, right? Is to stop talking about the subject that means to change the subject or not necessarily?
Yes, they mean the same thing, also. You might also hear this said as "every now and again," orAnd finally, "every now and then" means the same thing as"once in a while" or not?

cirrus said:I'm assuming that American Idol is about music so "don't miss a note" means don't miss one little bit, don't miss any action, that sort of thing
Don't miss a note is their way of saying "stay tuned" to the program. Because it's about music, as cirrus explained, they have used a musical way to say it by saying don't miss a [musical] note.Antonio said:I don't know what it means exactly this phrase. It could mean, don't miss any move, tv show or what does this phrase mean?
Hey Antonio;Antonio said:I'm sorry I didn't catch that last thing that you mentioned. Can you please give an example to understand better the meaning and the usage of "high note"?
How do you call in English a person how changes the subject in a snap over and over again in the same conversation with one or two people?
c. fig. to strike (also hit) a —— note and variants: to express a sentiment, idea, etc., of a specified tone or character; (similarly) to strike (also hit) the right note ; (also) to hit a (high, low, etc.) note : to achieve a specified level of success.
Hello, Drinkwater. That's exactly what the sentence means.
I agree with owlman. It is worth pointing out that this is an intentional pun. Mouse songs are very high-pitched so, by definition, they end on a high note (a high pitched squeak).
