I’m trying to decide whether I like or hate the concept. It’s certainly going to color how I listen to this symphony in the future (as many videos do).

I got this from two people as a CIDU this morning alone: the mechanic is giving Mick Jagger the idea for
that would eventually be best known as the theme for Windows 95.

I remember some years ago when I heard my niece sing “Your Mother Should Know” during a school function and realized that
that song had been a hit before her mother was born.
Okay, where was I? Oh yeah, today’s oldies synchronicity:
And the second one is a CIDU. I mean right, he’s Bobby McGee. But where’s the joke here?

Is this really a thing? Because all of a sudden I’m seeing a lot of references to people being afraid of feet, and it doesn’t make a bit of sense to me.
I mean, people can be afraid of anything, but lately this is being presented as a common phobia rather than, you know, a rare pathology.

Now that I have Pandora installed on my cell phone, I have a device that I can carry in my pocket that delivers random music, transmitted over the airwaves, which I can listen to coming out of tiny speakers. Who’d have guessed, 50 years ago, that technology would have come so far?

I happened to hear David Lee Roth’s remake of “Just a Gigolo” last night, and it occurred to me that this new version is more ancient to my oldest child (he’s 20, and it came out 5 years before he was born) than Louis Prima’s version is to me (I was a baby).

Keera: This isn’t a CIDU, because I get the joke. I’m just wondering about the 70’s reference to Sound of Philly. Or is there a new Philly sound these days - with strings attached?

I didn’t understand this one 6 1/2 years when I first saw it, but I forgot to save it for the CIDU page. I recently came across it again, and I still don’t get it.
