03:41 am - I got song, babe
I love the internet. Just now I followed a link to a YouTube clip from "Groundhog Day", and the clip ended with Bill Murray being woken up by "I Got You Babe" for the Nx100th time.
So then I was sitting here thinking, "I actually kinda like that song, but damn, Sonny Bono couldn't friggin' SING. Hmm, I wonder if the song's been covered by anybody else who can sing better."
So I typed "i got you babe" into YouTube's search box. Amidst the Sonny & Cher videos that came up, I spotted "UB40 Featuring Chrissie Hynde - I Got You Babe". Ooo! So I clicked it and gave it a listen. Ooo, me like! So while the video played, I went to amazon.com, selected "MP3 Downloads", typed "i got you babe" into the search box, found a link to the UB40 version, and purchased and downloaded it before the video ended. Now I have a *good* version of "I Got You Babe" in my collection!
