A rock'n'roll song prevented Leandra from committing a felony. How come?

Was she physically prevented from committing the crime? Did she change her mind and decide not to do it? Did she no longer feel the need to do it? Did she decide it wasn't safe?

Did Leandra hear the song being played? If so, live? On radio? Are the lyrics of the song relevant? Relevant that it was rock'n'roll?

Was the felony going to be murder? Theft? Assault? Drug related? Driving related? Fraud? Kidnapping?

Is it relevant who, if anyone, was going to be the victim?

Had she planned to commit a felony and then changed her plan because of the song? Or did it just prevent her from committing any felonies she may have committed in the future?

Did she not do it because she felt guilty? Felt it would be morally wrong? Worried she would be caught/punished?

Are any other people relevant here?

Is Leandra an adult? Was her decision based on logic that most people would agree with? Is a misunderstanding relevant?

Relevant who sings the song?

Did Leandra dance to the song? Sing along? Buy the song herself?

You missed one of Enjay's questions: Is it relevant who, if anyone, was going to be the victim?

You said there are other relevant people. Is it just one person? two people? more than that? Does she know the other relevant people personally? Are they the intended victims?

Does the song bring back a relevant memory?

was it a feel good song?
Did it make her feel good about herself?
Did it make her repent of her animosity?
Did it make her realize how absurd her plan was, her attitude?

is the relevance of the felony that she could go to jail if she committed it?
did hearing the song make her decide she didn't want to take the chance of being in jail? was the music coming from a prison? a woman's prison? did she dislike the music? did hearing the music make her realise that if she went to prison she would have little choice in what she had to listen to? and so she would lose a very valuable freedom?

This is close enough for make to declare a *********** SPOILER ***********
Clever Hannah triumphs again!! Leandra was about to commit a felony, but then she overheard a blaring rock song. Very sensitive to noise, L realized that if she got caught & sentenced to prison, she'd be stuck hearing blaring music all the time.So she abandoned her criminal plans. Please don't abandon me -- check out my new puzzle.
