I stumbled on this Wikipedia page and kinda died a little. I didn’t know song entries could lay out structure, but I guess it depends if you’re looking up Zep or “Poker Face” (no offense, luv you so much LG). But I so don’t hear music that way, at least not without conscious effort to do so. I wish I could turn it on more, I guess it’s just a matter of paying attention.
Anyway, it just got me thinking about how amazing Wikipedia is….they tell you in school not to use it, anyone can edit it, whatever…..but honestly, only because of Google + Wikipedia (and I guess, Mom’s Dell credit card) can I know everything about any song, whenever…also, I can know it in FIVE freakin’ seconds. Granted, I don’t know
So, okay Newhouse, Wikipedia is a bad thing to do, it’s bad for journalism and really everything that reporting should involve. But my trivia-geek wins out.
Great fucking song, too. Great playlist of songs, as I quickly discovered, courtesy of iTunes radio station The ANIMAL Rocks:
Stevie Nicks, “Edge of Seventeen”
Pink Floyd, “Time”
John Lennon, “Instant Karma!”
followed by a commercial for psychic reading.
