To my friends in New York, I say helloand so on. Well, to my surprise, some of the lyrics were changed. Instead, it goes like this:
My friends in L.A., they don't know
Where I've been for the past few years or so....
To my friends in New York, I say helloand so on. I don't know if you noticed the subtle difference.
My friends in UTAH, they don't know
Where I've been for the past few years or so...
Welcome to the hotel, Arizona!Come on. Those aren't the lyrics and we know it, and I find the changes annoying. Just leave it as is. Onerepublic (or maybe the DJs that changed the lyrics), I know you don't have any friends in Utah. But we'll listen to your music. It's still good without mention of salty lakes, snow, or canyon lands. You don't have to fake it.

"Wikipedia trivia: if you take any article, click on the first link in the article text not in parenthesis or italics and then repeat, you will eventually end up at Philosophy."I tried it twice. With the speed of light (took 8 clicks), and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (took 15 clicks), and it totally happened. (As a side note, what does it say about me that those were the first two articles I searched for when testing this hypothesis? Your comments are appreciated.)
I graduated with honors from the University of Vermont with a degree in English. Here’s a little nugget of wisdom for you just in case you’re interested: you can’t practice English in the real world. What skills did I have, honestly? I could outread anyone in a quick draw? I could write a totally smoking analytical essay about the homoerotic overtones of Shakespeare’s sonnets?
Yeah, that and a dollar fifty will get you a cup of coffee.Luckily, I added the "with emphasis in professional and technical writing" to my English degree. That has made quite a difference in my life. But don't get me started on how incompetent I think my professors were... that's a rant for a different day.
