This post is part of the Song of the Moment collection. For several years when I started blogging, I would occasionally post an obfuscated mp3 file for visitors to download without letting them know what the song was. The filename was always simply song.mp3 so when I posted a new one, the previous #sotm would be overwritten.

Baby Did a Bad Bad ThingChris Isaak

I really dig this song. I still haven’t seen Eyes Wide Shut and don’t know that I ever will, but this is a cool song. It reminds me of Baby Please Don’t Go from Wild at Heart.

    I came across your search in a desperate effort to find Baby Did a Bad Bad Thing as an MP3. I have the CD but I accidently left it at home. I am working in Azerbaijan for the next six months and have developed a craving to hear that song. I was hoping that you or someone else could possibly email it to me? Anyway, nice site. Most of the songs you listed are pretty cool.

I'll never share your email address and it won't be published.

What Is This? is the personal weblog of me, David Vincent Gagne. I've been publishing here since 1999, which makes this one of the oldest continuously-updated websites on the Internet.

A few years ago I was trying to determine what cocktails I could make with the alcohol I had at home. I searched the App Store but couldn't find an app that would let me do that, so I built one.
