Unless I have completely misunderstood the meaning of absolute and 
relative pitch all these years -- absolute meaning perfect pitch and being 
able to identify a note correctly immediately (my mate has perfect/absolute 
pitch which is a very rare ability) -- and relative pitch, which I have been 
told I have, meaning once I have been given the first note I am then able 
to discern all other notes properly.  But what these two things have to do 
with singing off key I am not sure.
As far as hearing off pitch singing depends completely on whether or not 
the hearer has perfect/absolute pitch and frankly that's a pretty rare 
person who can claim they have absolute pitch and I kinda doubt that the 
majority of posters on this list can stand up and claim they have 
perfect/absolute pitch.
