All The World’s Knowledge, and Guess What I Use Google For?

Technology is awesome. Type a few obscure lyrics into google, and boom! There is the song you and your friends sang… Except songs had different titles then and the only way you can find it is going to the record department at TSS (this is 1979, ok?), and playing “Name That Tune” with the clerk behind the counter…

Finding songs on Google
That’s right… I use it to find old, crappy songs from my childhood!



♫ “ONCE UPON A TIME I DRAAAANK A LITTLE WINE. WAS AS HAPPY AS CAN BEEEEE. HAAAAAAPPY AS CAN BE!” ♫

“Aw fuck I know this one. Fuck! Damn! Piss! Shit! Hey old man, get out here!”

The “old man” comes out from the back. He’s 27. The clerk is just out of high school, and I’m 14. So yeah, old man. “Sing it again”

♫ “ONCE UPON A TIME I DRAAAANK A LITTLE WINE. WAS AS HAPPY AS CAN BEEEEE. HAAAAAAPPY AS CAN BE!” ♫

The old man is like “I know this, fuck! Fuck! Fuck!!!”. I leave them to ponder this song, stuck in their head, until they stop breathing and choke on their spit, i guess…

The mystery continues for 43 years… Until today when I searched for it.

SEE?
