I don’t get addicted to songs very often. If you’ve spent any amount of time reading this site you know that I am infatuated with music and I love just about every genre. I have no doubt that I have spent the great majority of the last two decades with music playing. I love listening to music and I love hearing songs that I haven’t heard in a while. It’s rare that I listen to the same album or song more than once a day. But every now and then I get addicted to a tune and I want to hear it over and over again.

A few years ago it was Green Day‘s Jesus of Suburbia. A few months ago it was The Killers’ Sam’s Town. (I’m going to see them next Monday, by the way.) Right now it’s Carrie Underwood‘s Before He Cheats. Believe it or not, I had never heard of Ms. Underwood until I saw her on SNL last weekend performing this song. I, of course, immediately found it on LimeWire and have listened to it two dozen times this week. It’s the ’07 version of AlanisYou Oughta Know — angry and nasty. I love it.

The version I found is the album cut. If anyone has access to — or the whatfor to rip — the SNL recording for me, I’d greatly appreciate it.

  1. You can find Carrie’s vid of BHC at Cmt and I believe youtube has the SNL version. Hope this helps.

  2. I don’t have access to the SNL bootleg, but I do happen to have several kilos of crystal meth. It’s as good as Ms. Underwood. Some would argue better. But I’d be happy for you to just try an ounce or two and see for yourself. In fact, as a celebration of your recent engagement, I’ll ship you a free sample. This ride is on me…

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.
