    The main feed; in a news aggrigator, it's the news items, in a podcast client, it's the media files.

    This is the feed for iTunes to load the podcast. Why so difficult and non-standard? Beats me...it's why I use Juice and not iTunes.

Never trust Internet lyrics…

Filed under: General, Radio Today — Charlie Summers @ 1:23 pm

So out of general curiosity (and not being able to understand one line), I went looking for the lyrics to a Sister Hazel song, “At Your Worst.” (Yeah, I know, I’m wildly out of their target demographic, but I really like their stuff anyway, so tough. And if you want to taste this alternate rock group for free, check out this Amazon Sampler.) You’d think this would be simple, but apparently every Internet lyrics site steals from everyone else. In this case, they are all wildly wrong.

Example; the first lines read, at every site I’ve found:

I’m never one to fall to pieces
I’m always stead as she goes

I’m “always stead?” Seriously? The line is obviously, “I’m always steady as she goes,” but not one site has the correction. The next two lines make even less sense:

I listened hard to all the teachers
The more I know, the less I know

Amazing how the correct line, “The more I learn, the less I know” makes so much more sense, and is far better imagery.

So clearly I’ve given up on the Internet for song lyrics. Guess I’ll need to buy the Heartland Highway CD and hope they are in the liner notes (and hope that Target still has it on sale for $5.99!).
