I got song, babe - The online computery journal thingy of a turtle

03:41 am - I got song, babe

Previous Entry Share Next Entry

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!

There's also Cher with Beavis and Butt-head, but they don't sing the words, just one of the instrumental parts. I'm sure UB40 sounds better, albeit less amusing.

I flatly refuse to listen to anything with Beavis and Butthead in it.

I always said that I'd stop pirating music when buying it legitimately became as easy or easier than getting it illegally. It did, and I did.

If you play that song in my presence there may be violence. I hate it and it gets stuck in my head extremely easily. ;)

I love Amazon's MP3 department! I've spent dozens of dollars there!
