The Sound Track of My Days

Remember when you were a teenager and you would record the radio on your crappy AM/FM radio? And you would hit play, stop, rewind, play so you could figure out the words to all your favorite songs?

I even would use my dad's fancy Pioneer head phones, turn the music up really loud, and write down the lyrics (or what I thought the lyrics were).

Well...I still do that.


Now, what I do goes something like this:

I'm watching TV and hear an interesting song. I grab the closest pen and paper and the remote. I rewind the TV (I really LOVE my DVR!) and frantically write down as many of the lyrics as I possibly can.

Next, I run into our home office and pull up Google.

I type in as many of the words that I could decipher and hit enter.

Most of the time, I find the song this way.

If not, I type something like this "song in Law and Order 5/24/09."

I love this! I have been introduced to some of my favorite artists/songs this way.

Hem-Half Acre (a Liberty Mutual commercial)

Fisher-Beautiful Life (Toyota commercial)

Landon Pigg-Falling in Love in a Coffee Shop (Some car commercial-I think. Nope a diamond commercial)

Teddy Geiger-For You I Will (Love Monkey)

Craig Cardiff-Smallest Wingless (I don't know where I heard this, but it was recently--I remember now--it was blog I read about a stillborn baby)

I could go on and on. But I won't.

Suffice it to say, I'm glad for modern technology.

That second one is the old John and Kate plus eight song! Too bad that association kind of ruins it for me. :(

Yes, technology is great.
