Shepard Tone

In class today we learned about this tone that seems to perpetually decend. I wonder about how our ears (actually our brains) can deceive us. For instance I wonder how this example might implicate other tones and sounds that get represented in similar ways. For instance is there some illusory aspect to how words of songs are misheard or even the words of a conversation can be confused.
