Name that tune.

In many respects* I have terrible luck. Whenever I am playing board games I can be counted upon to roll the worst possible combinations of the dice, for example. Whenever something pressing is, er, pressing my cell phone dies or I get a nasty cold on my 1st full day of SAHDness.

But one area which vexes me with Murphy's Law is music. Allow me to explain.

Sometimes I'll be minding my own business and a great new song will come on the radio. I'll listen to it and I will love it and I want to go to the intelligent person's version of iTunes and download it. But I didn't catch the title/artist. Then I catch the end of the song another time, and the title/artist were announced at the front...or just as the DJ is about to say the name of the song and the artist who performs it, some @#$% will interrupt me and I'll miss it.

It's even more annoying when you have a cold from Hell.

P.S. I'm blanking on the lyrics, and the pitiful thing is that Badger knows the song, whatever it may be.

* Not in anything, y'know, important.

Wait, what? I know it? Did you ... communicate it to me telepathically? Should I be on cold meds too for this to work?

If you can remember ANY of the lyrics, you have but to google them and come up with the title/artist and whatnot. I'm only telling you that in case the Nyquil is blocking the section of your brain wherein resides that obvious solution.

P.S. Feel better soon!
P.P.S. My throat is a little sore....

What is the intelligent person's version of iTunes?

If I'm using iTunes does that make me stupid?

No, it makes you a victim of an unholy conspiracy.

P.S. Badger, I already tried that. Came up snake-eyes. Seems I am MISremembering the lyrics.

What I (mis)remember is something like "I say oh, no...oh, no, no, no, whoa no, no, no...woo hoo" and so forth.

Pathetic, huh? I may not even qualify for using iTunes.

Could it be "Black Horse & the Cherry Tree" by KT Tunstall? Because that song seriously has pretty much those exact lyrics.

I quote Dennis Hopper on the "What's That Smell?" sketch on SNL: "That's a scary honker you got there, man.

I @#$%ING KNEW THAT YOU WOULD KNOW.

I @#$%ING KNEW IT!

Rommel! You magnificent bastard, I read your book!

I'm a magic man, mama.

Or something.

(Hee! You're welcome.)

The whole KT Tunstall CD is really good. You should get it for sure. Like, totally.

And seriously, can you please tell us what the smart people are using instead of iTunes? Even though iTunes is a conspiracy to take over all of the entertainment in the world, I'm OK with that. I just love Apple too much not to be OK with that.

Just reading that was pretty amazing. You need to just sit back and watch that unfold. Like watching the ballet.

JJ,

The smart people are using a protocol known by the rough parameters of "not iTunes."

My views on Apple are well-known. Apple in my house is as welcome as Yankees-wear at Fenway.

BWAA HA HA! This is the funniest thing I've read all week!
I just heard that too, and wondered who in the hell it was. Same thing goes on here as at Chez Joke's; you hear somethin' juicy, and you never hear who is was for one reason or another. I saw the beginning of her video and jumped out of the chair (at a friend's house) And
The
Power
Went
Off.
I kid you not.
I'm pretty sure this is the tune. She's skinny with long dark hair?

Hey, That's It!
Thanks!

At least you can remember the lyrics. I can't do that half the time.
Joke said…
I didn't remember the lyrics so much as I remembered 6 syllables. I knew Badger would come through like a champ.

I had that problem, and I solved it by not caring.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

I crack me up.

Ahhhhh, Winamp. I understand the hatred of iTunes. Honestly, I can't believe I don't feel the same way, but it's so pretty. And shiny. And I'm a girl, pretty and shiny just make me happy.

And my word ver? zehrpohu. Doesn't that look like a Scientologoy word?
Joke said…
That sounds like a character out of Ghostbusters.
