"Change one’s tune" nghĩa là gì?

'Change one’s tune' có một động từ mới là to change, nghĩa là thay đổi. Vì thế change one's tune có nghĩa là thay đổi giọng điệu hay thái độ của mình, nhất là khi có lợi cho mình.

Ví dụ
Basketball fans didn’t have much respect for our university’s team until we started winning game after game against top-rated (giỏi hạng đầu) schools. Now those critics (những người phê bình) are changing their tune. The way they talk about how great our players are, they sound like they’ve supported us for years!

My boyfriend loves astronomy (thiên văn học), which I always thought was boring. But after going with him to the planetarium (mô hình vũ trụ) and exploring the universe (vũ trụ) together through his telescope (kính viễn vọng), I’ve changed my tune (thay đổi lập trường). I’ve gotten a whole new attitude about the stars and planets. Now I find them fascinating, thanks to him.
