03:09 am - ATTENTION ALL MUSIC SHARERS
JUST FOR YOUR INFORMATION, CLOWNHELMETS:

The Grateful Dead did not record that version of "One Toke Over The Line" (that was Brewer & Shipley.) Simply because a song has druggie lyrics and a twangy late 60s hippie feel to it does not automatically make it the Dead's.
Harry Chapin did not sing "Please Come to Boston" (that was Dave Loggins -- no, not Kenny. Dave. Yes, there was a Dave.)
Tony Orlando & Dawn did not sing "Take A Letter, Maria" (that was RB Greaves.) I mean, these are all nice guesses here, people, but for the sake of accuracy let's do some fact-checking or something first, eh?

Oh, and the song is called "Brandy (You're a Fine Girl)" and not simply "You're a Fine Girl" and definitely not "Your a Fine Girl."

Please make the proper changes where appropriate.

Your pal,
The Fucking Pedant

I suggested the official motto for Napster, all those years ago, should've been "That's Not Phish."

And a sub-motto, if there is such a thing, would be "Those Parodies Aren't Weird Al, Either."

Filesharers seem to think that The Cure, New Order, Depeche Mode, Camouflage, Joy Division, The Pet Shop Boys, and Erasure are interchangeable, too.

N.B. "CLOWNHELMETS" has been retired in favor of "ASS LAMPREYS." Please make a note of it.
