An interesting (over-) analysis of the lyrics of the Gary Moore / #Nightwish song "Over the hills and far away":
Not sure which explanation I like best: the Bonny & Clyde setup, or the husband finding out about the affair and framing his so-called best friend.
Let's see if making some more space / cleaning up daily mess, will help clear up my own mind as the same time too. :)
Is there a proper name for only being able to 'hear' the parody lyrics to a song, rather than the actual lyrics?
Or should I just continue to refer to it as the "Weird Al"-Yankovic-effect?
Wow, has it been 23 years already since the #Dutch #song #15MiljoenMensen by Jochem Fluitsma & Eric van Tijn was released?
Even if you don't understand Dutch, watching the videoclip at https://youtu.be/wftARWunM2I is imho worth it just for the contemporary footage of the #Netherlands.
Wouldn't mind seeing an updated version, even though it'd probably show a lot more people staring into their phones...

Ugh... why is the #Spotify desktop app so slow to start up? I want to listen to music now, not in 5 minutes. Does it first have to load the data from a data cassette tape?
It was bad enough that I had to wait for #Windows to log in and finish updating after it had rebooted itself again, all by itself.
"I am a #dwarf and I'm digging a hole,
diggy, diggy hole, diggy, diggy hole
I am a dwarf, and I'm digging a hole,
diggy diggy hole, digging a hole."
Time to check it out :)
Done some housework, had some lunch and tea and it's 13:37 'o clock.
Time to listen to tunes from one of my all-time favourite #SNES #racing games: #SiliconAndSynapse ¹ #RockNRollRacing in both their original versions, and their #SPC #chiptune versions composed by #TimFollin: https://open.spotify.com/user/fixato/playlist/7glIezRqmD8gypsjTrrEbN?si=V1F_t6CIQUqCquPzIRXT7w

During the late #90s or early #2000s I had a period I listened quite a bit to this genre, especially artists #Extince and #Brainpower were often in my portable MP3 CD player, and for some reason that music helped me gain a bit more self-confidence.
So, #NowPlaying: Brainpower - The Box P.U.R.E. Session
When listening to #music, I tend to not 'register' the words, which can be both a blessing and a curse.
A blessing as it makes it easy to have music on in the background while reading text, or writing code.
A curse, as it makes me completely unaware of the lyrics. I can have had an album on repeat, and still have no clue what the songs are about; as long as it sounds right, they could be singing 'lalalala' for all I care.
This unfortunately also makes it impossible to listen to #audiobooks...
