Have you ever listened to a record album like this? I used to, and this was one of my favorites. The Beach Boys. When I would listen to an album, I would sometimes want to skip to a different song, so I would move the needle of the record player to that song. As you know, some expressions in English don’t mean what the words say. Move the needle is one of these because there aren’t any needles of any kind moving. The expression move the needle means to make a noticeable change in something so that there will be a measurable difference or improvement. Most often, move the needle is used in a positive sense, meaning to make progress towards a goal. Here are two examples. They hope the new product line will move the needle on sales. We need to move the needle on climate change. Don’t you agree?
