Music idioms

There are hundreds of idioms used by English speakers all the time. Today, I am posting idioms related to music but their meanings have nothing to do with music.

1. Jessica wanted to quit her job, but after she was offered a higher salary, she changed her tune very quickly- change her mind

2. I hardly studied for my exam. I will have to face the music when the exam results are announced- deal with the consequences
