One of my most favourite tracks of recent years is “Hey There Delilah” by the Plain White T’s. I would happily play the song repeatedly – just simply a marvellous piece of music – if I had a copy of it but my music library contains none of the band’s music.
And then today CthulhuChick shared a video on Facebook about an independent Xbox game called “Cthulhu Saves The World”. On the face of it, not a revolutionary game but what’s that playing in the background?
“Hey there Cthulhu, down there in your sunken city
You’re a billion light years distant and the stars look very pretty
So close and yet so far away
I emailed Eben for advice on how to get the song out of my head and he suggested singing Yellow Submarine instead. I suppose at least that Beatles song has less screaming in it.
And then I went and bought “Hey There Delilah”…
