A strange musical coincidence

You know how I like silly coincidences? Here's another one: last week I had a brief discussion with a friend about the Crash Test Dummies' song Mmm mmm mmm mmm, which was a huge hit when we were at uni (don't ask, I don't recall how it came up).

Then last night my friend Paul texted me about a bunch of acts that are performing in New York while I'm there and Crash Test Dummies is one of them. Funny, I said, I was just talking about that old song the other day...

But that's not all! Paul went to a pub tonight and no points for guessing what song was playing. Yep. That one. Weird. I haven't thought of that song in probably more than 10 years - let alone heard it - and now it's popped up three times in the space of a week$ and a bit.

In other, less freakish, musical coincidences, today I posted a YouTube video of Frank Sinatra's New York, New York, to get me in the mood for my trip (two sleeps!) and tonight a snippet of the song featured in one of the rounds on Spicks n Specks.

Isn't it funny how often that happens? This morning I was sitting in mother's group (oh yes, I've become one of those) and the music in the cafe was a long stream of hits from high school... umm... early nineties.

But thanks for reminding me about spicks and specks. After 6 months without tv, i'd completely forgotten most of my favourite shows : )

Great shots. I'm still amazed you're not shooting with an SLR especially with those night/evening pics.
