Has Guitar Hero Changed My Ears?

I happily include myself in the thousands of Canadians who got Guitar Hero III for the Wii this Christmas. The Wii came back in July (thanks Keri and David!!!!), theoretically we were one of the early Wii adopters north of the 48th parallel. :-)Now, after playing off and on for the pask week, both the Wiz and I are suffering from GH Ear. GH Ear happens when you are *not* playing Guitar Hero - you're doing normal, everyday things, and you happen to hear a song, a commercial, a tune, something off the radio and all of a sudden you are analyzing the song for it's Guitar Hero Play-ability. Songs sound different now. The guitar components have moved to the front and centre of the action. Lyrics are secondary. Your hands move on the imaginary frets, trying to determine the complexity of the notes and the strumming required. You wonder if you can capture enough notes in a row to qualify for *Star Power*.Hey.... did you just hear that?  Wouldn't that song be excellent on Guitar Hero?
