One thing you get when you have to work we EB every day is – other than crazy – astonished. She’s always humming haunting tunes and when I ask her (nicely) what the heck she’s humming, her standard answer is “I don’t know”. She hums all these haunting melodies – all songs without names and it leaves me frustrated and hungry. What’s a guy to do? What is the name of that song. She does this on purpose. She is trying to drive me insane and have me shipped off to Cartutla for mental rehabilitation and indoctrination. She’s plotting against me and driving me insane with that eerie humming.
Ha! I’m the king of search and little will she know (until she reads this) that I foiled her pernicious plot to ply me from my perch at Cloudeight and so she can grab the reins of our massive (ha! ha!) empire with her wrinkled-up, old, duplicitous hands. My search savvy has turned up a gold mine for those who hear the haunting hums of EB and can’t, for the life of them, figure out what the name of the song is.
Yesterday, while she was practicing her evil trade, humming her haunting tunes, I fired up my browser and headed to midomi.com where upon I hummed her haunting little ditty into my microphone and midomi instantly displayed the name of the tune. It was “I’m Gonna Make You Eat Bread Until Your Belly Explodes” by The Alka Seltzer Five. I knew I recognized it – my aunt used to hum it to me when she was trying to lull me to sleep in her swimming pool. As you can see, my aunt was not successful and neither was EB. I’ve escaped many harrowing experiences in my lengthy time on Earth.
What’s that? Oh, yes, I hear ya! I’m prattling on again. Thanks for reminding me.
Here’s how midomi’s developers describe this rather amazing site and contribution to those of us who need to know the name of a song when someone tries to drive you nuts by humming it all day long:
“midomi is the ultimate music search tool because it is powered by your voice. Sing, hum, or whistle to instantly find your favorite music and connect with a community that shares your musical interests. Give it a try. It’s truly amazing!”
So, putting prattle aside and putting the kibosh on EB, by the power vested in me by Cloudie The Great, I hereby declare my freedom from EB’s incessant humming and that midomi.com is today’s Website pick.
I prattle no more.
