This is pretty common knowledge to musicians. Your brain expects to hear a note or a beat, so it adds it in. It's like a ghost note. Pretty spooky stuff.

I've heard the actual song several times a day, every day, for the past few weeks at work, but I don't hear any voice in that video...

Hmmm I am surprised how many people didn't hear the voice, wonder what that says about us that do?

I do not hear it.

But that is probably because I have trained my ear to listen to each different part of a piece of music, from the piano to the drums, from the front vox to the backing group, and any other parts which might be present. In heavy metal, particularly black metal and prog metal, the layering in the music is dense, and I train my ears to separate the strands from which tracks are woven, in order to better understand the badassery at work. Devin Townsend is a master at layering things richly, and meshing them beautifully together.

However, I also enjoy unpicking his sounds with my ears. This, by comparison, offers little challenge.

I can't hear a human voice in it at all.

Awfully de-tuned piano though.

Perhaps it's because I'm a muso. I listen far more critically than others.

I get what you mean, I hear the "voice" but its not really a voice its just how the MIDI sounds sorta vibrate/reverb mainly the piano.

I haven't really heard this song of hers either, I understand why people think that sound might be a "voice" but it certainly isn't, MIDI can be quite confusing at time, I am quite familiar with MIDI songs as I used to play plenty of them in an MMO that allowed you to play MIDI songs with in-game music instruments, and if you knew the song sometimes the words just come up even though they aren't there.

Sorry. Nothing. Some occasional sounds that may have been vocal samples, but they could just as easily have been made by Michael Jackson, Donald Duck or a voice synthesizer.

Something similar - linking sense modalities.

I remember an interesting podcast on RadioLab with Diana Deutsch - about hearing songs buried in monotonous sound loops.
