Small Guy, Big Voice

April 20, 2005

I want to confess that I just downloaded a Rick Astley song on iTunes and listened to it twice in a row. And I paid 99 of my hard-earned cents for it, too.

    next confession: it was neither of those songs, although i like them both and am considering going back to download them. it was “cry for help,” which i heard on the patio at lunch yesterday for the first time since it was on the billboard chart, probably. is it wrong to have a section of my iTunes library devoted to the rick astley catalogue, such as it is?

    Do you use something called, “Raisers Edge”?

    I am familiar with RE but we don’t use it here, mainly because it’s too expensive for us.

    Jim, It was somebody on I Love the 80’s/90’s… probably Hal Sparks.

    The SNL version (I can’t remember who did it, but it was pre-Chris Rock) went:

    I’m in the middle of puberty
    Everybody makes fun of me
    The voice of a black man in the body of Howdy Doody

    Hmm.. didn’t know that version existed… it’s not the one I was referencing.

    Dude, here are my embarrassing iTunes: “I’ll Be There” by Escape Club and “Hole Hearted” by Extreme. Then I got wise and realized that I can access my local library online and get a bunch of CDs out and not pay 99 cents a song. Duh.
