Two items of business, neither of which has anything to do with the other:
- I don’t know the proper term for this phenomenon, so I’ll explain it instead. Have you ever thought you’d seen someone you knew–at the mall, for instance, or waiting for a flight–discovered it wasn’t them, then seen the actual person later that same day? It’s usually someone you hadn’t seen in a long time. Make sense? So tonight, on my way home from meeting Margaret for a drink at Scallywag’s, I thought I heard a song on the Edge; I hadn’t, but then two minutes later it came on. I mention this because the song was none other than “C30 C60 C90 Go” by Bow Wow Wow; yes, this is a mighty ode to the cassette tape, and no, I hadn’t heard it in years. If you’ve never heard it, give it a download. I was going to make a point about how strange it is for bands to write songs about recording mediums–then remembered “Spin the Black Circle” and moved on.
- Does anybody know how “Mony Mony” came to include its “hey motherfucker get laid get fucked?” sing-a-long? Anybody? Because not even Google could give me an answer.
I think I need more sleep…
