I like to have music on while I work, though I’m often only listening to it with half an ear. At work, I take advantage of Pandora Radio to offer up a stream of music that is likely to be pleasing to me, while still exposing me to interesting new things that I might not otherwise hear amid all the stuff i do know.
So I’m sitting here working on a project, and my brain starts to register the music that’s playing.
“Hrm. This is a good song.”
“It sounds vaguely familiar.”
“Familiar, but it’s not right. It must be some weird cover of a song I like.”
Finally, this thought gets hold of enough of my consciousness that I flip my browser up to see what I’m listening to.
Turns out it’s not a weird cover at all. It’s the original recording of “Three Fine Daughters of Farmer Brown” by Eddie from Ohio. I’ve just gotten so used to the Lady Mondegreen cover that I register this recording as odd. 🙂
