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.
