A Few Catchy Little Notes on Love
Notorious DCI

I find this very difficult to read. I have to read every line very slowly and then it clicks in, and I’m stuck with an earworm that could last a month, but it’s on to the next line, where the process begins again. When you combine two in one line, it hurts my brain.

They used to make novelty records like this. I’ve often wondered why this particular form of humor/satire went away when the sampling tools to do it got easier to use.

Are you old enough to remember “Superfly Meets Shaft”?

Edit: My son overheard the John & Ernest track. When I said “they don’t make these anymore” he played a Chris Rock modern version about Monica Lewinsky. I guess they do. I’m just too old to hear them.
