About Me

I got the nickname Ron Obvious because -- in addition to being a huge Python fan -- my name really is Ron and I used to start sentences with \"Obviously\" a lot. Obviously, that\'s no longer a problem.

Vaping, public health concerns, and irony


I don't know that song, but I've certainly heard that melody before...

This happens to me a lot: a hear some music, and I know I've heard it before but I can't place it. That's probably happened to all of us.

This was different. I absolutely recognised the melody, but I was pretty sure I'd never heard the song before. This happened once when I asked the waitress what that so-familiar music was. "Bittersweet Symphony", she said, which meant nothing to me. It turned out that that was the music used by ITV for it's England Football coverage.

It happened again last night. I'd never heard the song before, but I just knew I knew it very well.

This is the song:

If you're a electronica nerd like me, you know you've heard the melody before, right? I've never listened to Coldplay to my knowledge, but I was intimately familiar with that riff.

It bothered me and I stewed over it for it for some time. Then it finally came to me: It's Kraftwerk from the Computer World album (1981)!

Bloody identical, right! Good to finally pass that brainstone.
