It’s music to my eyes

The exact quote is “any fine gold in there would be music to my eyes”, recently heard on the show “Gold Rush” last Sunday.   Given the context, the mash up is  “music to my ears” (make someone happy) and “a sight for sore eyes” (a welcome sight), both describing the speaker’s emotions.   As we have learned,  mixing body parts is common in malaphors.  A big shout out to Michael Ameel for hearing (and seeing) this one!

    This is also an example of the rhetoric-device, synaesthesia.
