you know when you hear part of a song that you heard years and years ago, but you don't know what it's called or who it's by ? you don't know any of the lyrics, so you are forced to wrack your brain for anywhere you might have heard it ? you search far and wide for the elusive name of the song, which you may stumble across by a stroke of luck, or never hear again ?
that totally just happened with the song baba o'riley by the who. i was listening to a friend of a friend's mixtape, and i heard a snippet of a song that sounded very familiar. i had only the synth portion at the beginning to go by while trying to find it. thankfully i managed to figure it out after searching for about fifteen minutes. turns out i first heard the song when i was 9 or 10, in the trailer for a bug's life back when vhs tapes had previews at the beginning. who knew ?
