My new desktop wallpaper!
1) Last Friday (Tuesday), I was so busy bitching about the abundance of "Buzz on Maggie" footage in the new Skye Sweetnam video that I failed to notice this clip...
2) I still say that "Billy S" is much smarter than some people (ahem) give it credit for. To shed further light on this destined classic, here is a mild brain-melter courtesy of Wikipedia:
Her first single, Billy S., was the center of attention when many teenagers posted the lyrics online as Meet Juliet or my Volio as opposed to Meet Juliet or Malvolio. The word Volio has since developed a cult following as an example of a mondegreen (a misheard and misinterpreted song lyric).
...This common mistake soon spread across the internet on various lyric-based websites, despite Volio not being a word or a phrase. As a result, many intenet users have adopted this word as their own, giving Volio its official definition as "a polio-infected Swedish automobile". This definition views the word Volio as a hybrid combining the disease polio and the Swedish Volvo, a make of car.
It is now commonly used in internet slang to refer to any lyrical typo or misunderstanding.
3) Skye has already proven that she can cover Blondie no sweat. So today's Skye Friday! Pop Quiz! is: What cover should Skye Sweetnam totally dominate next??
Point of comparison: Skye Sweetnam - Heart of Glass (Blondie cover)
A) The Arcade Fire - I'm Sleeping in a Submarine

D) ABBA - I Let the Music Speak
E) Van Morrison - Jackie Wilson Said (I'm in Heaven When You Smile)
F) Talk Talk - After the Flood
(Hint: There is only one correct answer. The answer will be revealed next SKYE FRIDAY.)
