Blackbird four ways

Remember Napster? I do. I was in high school during the Napster revolution, and during that time I got a little obsessed with downloading bizarre covers of familiar songs.  I also got a little obsessed with the Beatles tune “Blackbird”. Plus I got kind of obsessed with my then-boyfriend.

One night in 11th grade I stayed up until 3 AM making him a mix CD with 16 different covers of that song.

That sounds a little crazy now.

I probably should have just kept that mix CD for myself.

Anyways, I miss Napster. I miss the Beatles. I miss staying up until 3 AM discovering bizarre, awesome music. In tribute:

Does the ability to limit myself to four covers mean I am only 25% as crazy as I was when I was 16? I hope not.
