Displacement activity warning. Don't read on if you have a day's work to do today.
Smaller than Life is a blog that has entertained me greatly. It was the place where we first encountered song titles restated mathematically. Recently a number of posts have concerned song prequels (the song written before the song that became a hit). I have found this incredibly diverting during dull meetings recently.
To get the hang of it go here or here or here. Some of the best ones are in the comments boxes. With grateful thanks to the Archdeacon of Bath's visitation address last night:
Come on baby fetch some coal in
Will only get fooled once more
Can just about afford to buy me love
Slightly disturbed horses
I heard it through the mail
Sisters only need a little help
(I get by) with a lot of help from my friends
Quivering lip of a clown
Keep on jogging
Tentatively approaching heaven's door
