MEGABYTES

("Silhouettes")









(click here to hear:)



Took a walk and passed your house
Late last night
Saw you scrolling with your mouse
Left to right
From your Windows Vista cast
Your obsolete cathode ray
Go LCD, it's time to upgrade

Put your cursor on the spot
Left click twice
In a chat room steamy hot
Not so nice
Then your download soon began
Two megabytes worth of RAM
Oh what a techno-geek I am

Megabytes, megabytes
Megabytes, megabytes
Megabytes, megabytes
Aah, aah
Megabytes, megabytes
Megabytes, megabytes
Megabytes, megabytes
Aah, aah

Rushed down to my Mac with wings
On my feet
Hacked your system, pressed CONTROL-
ALT-DELETE
Stole your password then I scanned
Your register and your log
Said oh my God -- you're on the wrong blog!*

Megabytes, megabytes
Megabytes, megabytes
Megabytes, megabytes
Aah, aah
Megabytes, megabytes
Megabytes, megabytes
Megabytes, megabytes
Aah, aah

Now we're happy as can be
So in love
Daily scans and virus-free
All debugged
And to think it all began
Two megabytes worth of RAM
Oh what a lucky motherhacker I am

Megabytes, megabytes
Megabytes, megabytes
Megabytes, megabytes
Aah, aah
Megabytes, megabytes
Megabytes, megabytes
Megabytes, megabytes
Aah, aah............

Continuing on our analysis of the music scene...

I noticed the song in the new AT&T commercial and thought it was something from the late 1960s. I thought it sounded like something The Critters would do. It's called "Daydream", "Daydreamin'" or "Daydream in Blue" according to the links I found by Googling the lyrics. I'd like to reserve judgement till I hear more of the song, by I Monsters, and by a rapper that sampled the song. It did catch my ear, and of course, it already won a Grammy, so I'm behind the curve on that one. But maybe that's the best part of the song. The AT&T spot has flowers opening to cell phones, but there was a 1960s flowers/psychedelia there also reminiscent of FV4S's "Watch The Flowers Grow", and Nancy Sinatra's and Lee Hazlewood's "Some Velvet Morning", known to some as "Phaedra".

I was listening to the AT&T spot again and it also reminds me of The Arbors, who Charles Calello worked with.
