I mean, crap, is it even possible to just be bugged by not knowing something anymore? When was the last time you said, "I don't know" and just left it? When was the last time you saw an actor in a movie, but just couldn't recall his name and did NOT look it up on IMDb?
I think the fact that there's no "not knowing" anymore really sunk in for me when I was talking with a friend about The Incredible Hulk TV show. In the show's intro, David Banner's wife is shown in a burning car. I wondered if this woman was somebody famous. Within 30 seconds I was told by my friend at the computer that it was Lara Parker from Dark Shadows.... and that her husband played Tommy Bailey in It's a Wonderful Life! Damn. This is just ridiculous.
What does all this have to do with Beatle's cover songs? Precious little. I thought about all this when I was listening to Mauriat's Blooming Hits today. I'd planned on writing about "Penny Lane" but got distracted by this thought. Don't blame me - blame my ADD.
It's a pretty blah piece of muzak. The only thing exciting about this recording is its album cover. This spooky chick has always caught my attention since I was a little kid. I wonder who she is. Man, that's going to bug me. How long do you think it will take me to find out?
