Musical Musings… Someone Else’s Mixup

Every once in a while, it’s nice to scoff at someone else’s misery mixup.  I’m not free of confusion in this situation, but it involves my boss/friend Paul, and the group Supertramp.

First off, I was unaware they made The Logical Song

…and, well I’ll get to the other song in a little bit.

One day, Paul burst into the office, convinced that the Goo Goo Dolls had ripped off one of Supertramp’s songs.  He swore the end of one of their songs directly stole the ending, but he couldn’t remember which of either.

As I mentioned, I was only familiar with the above tune, so we scoured Goo Goo Dolls’ catalog on YouTube, skipping to just the end of almost all their hits.  When we finally hit upon Give a Little Bit, Paul was elated that this was the song.  Now we only needed to figure out the Supertramp song.

And voila…

    Supertramp is a little bit of guilty pleasure of mine. As a full blown hipster, it doesn’t go over well when I talk about them to certain friends.

    These friends can suck it if they don’t like it, though.

    I would think that Supertramp could fit perfectly into the hipster scene… in an ironic way.

    Not to change subjects but, if you wanted to get yourself a copy of it:'s_Diary

    I think I’m blown away by the concept of someone writing an imaginary diary that detailed. It’s like somebody broke into my house to read my daily cat diary.
