Frustration!!

.
Do you ever hear a song - or part of a song - and it suddenly needs to be on your iPod? I was listening to NPR today whilst cleaning out my overstuffed and understylish wardrobe (can you say "uber-procrastination"?) and heard a snippet that's become a source of frustration.

This American Life... Episode 188: "Kid Logic". The song in Act two: The Game Ain't Over til the Fatso Man Sings by Howie Chackowicz - 19 minutes into the broadcast... electronica-poppy-type music (not the 70's cheese in the rest of the piece)... great chord progressions...

And I can't find it anywhere!!!!

I did, in my vain search, find two other songs that I now have blasting into my eardrums (Dub Latina by Calexico, and Flake by Jack Johnson).... but alas, this one has alluded me so far...

(crying)

But meanwhile, I found out that The Electric Company is now available in podcasts! (Did you know that Morgan Freeman was in that?) Ahhh, I love flashbacks into my uber-geek childhood... Warm fuzzies!

ACTUALLY. I posted a question on yahoo today to see if anyone knew the song, and it turns out that someone did. It's called Popcorn by Hot Butter. Interesting, eh? I'm so happy to know what it is now and hope you enjoy it if you didn't know what it was already.
