    kind of weird though to say that a song is recognizable by its chords....

    the eye charts for Gracias a la Vida and Fly Me to the Moon would be pretty confusing...

    Those songs were buried for a long time but they've been given new life.

    What's FB?

    Oh that's right, that's what it was called before the "Meta-morphosis".

    Actually, FaceBook is still branded Facebook and YouTube is still branded YouTube, so I have no idea what all that corporate nonsense was all about.

    And from now on, children, radiation poisoning is called "eating happy moon-beams"! :D WTF?

    I just ran through the chords...at least the first two lines, then I realized I don't remember how it goes...


    Nice post Simon

    Simon’s post was not only funny, but it may have encouraged the previously uninitiated to find out who Tom Petty was, as well as inspire others to learn how to play “American Girl” and maybe even remind the rest of us to brush up on it.

    So it’s a win, win, win, win...

    Thanks @simoncroft...
