Also Gertrude Stein on Oakland, CA. 

Yogi and Casey Stengel certainly came up with some jaw-droppers, gatorade. Yogi did some great TV ads with that schtick—AFLAC for one, I think.

Nice. Love it when someone besides me quotes the late great Yogi. High 5.

On how crappy speakers can completely ruin a song

I hate to... ooops. Let me rephrase: I generally write comments about the songs I like rather than dislike.
I also believe that the first time one hears a song - the mood one's in - will set the way one hears it the following times...
The first time I heard this one, I really couldn't understand what they were trying to do. I was incredibly irritated/frustrated, and I didn't want to express such negative feelings... So no comment, because it would have been really dark.

Now I just heard "Oh honey" again, on BETTER speakers; first time was on the speaker of my smartphone (yeah I know... but I use it to listen to RP in bed when I'm too lazy to get up to turn on my sound system and my laptop is not at hand).
When I recognized the song, I immediately thought NO, not that THING again, feeling like conveying this through a comment. I thought I would look first what others had said about it, and at that time, the three, four, five last comments where all extremely enthusiastic, which made me think twice... which I was already doing, because the song was going on in the meantime, and I was a little surprised as I didn't feel that exasperation from the first hearing, and instead found myself liking what I heard.

That was because I suddenly was able to hear all that was missing before, meaning pretty much everything except for the voice; the first time I only heard the melody and the words... Not even the quatity of the voice quite carried over.
Now I've heard the WHOLE song. The great drums, the whole ambiance...

So this goes from no rating at all to 7 !

Don't listen to music through your phones, people, it's just murder! {#Cool}

 
I primarily use my cell phone for making phone calls (fancy that!) or occasionally texting.  On the rare occasions when I do listen to music on it, I use ear buds or headphones.  I agree though, there is a lot going on in this tune.

Those two songs don't sound very similar to me, but everyone hears different things.  Anyhow, this album came out about five years before that Feist tune was released.

Where is that animated thingy of the guy getting hit on the head with the sledge hammer? I REALLY need to post it for this song; which I find mind numbing!

There are very few songs that RP plays that make me STOP WORK, Log in and cause me to write a negative comment. Infact, this is the very first time.

Please stop the torture, argh! I cant take it~

Kind of like the old Boy George song, "Do You Really Want To Hurt Me."

After hearing it a bazillion times, the answer was a definite "Yes!"
