I was reminded again today why I don’t listen to the radio. I was driving along when I finished my CD, so I decided to change to the radio, just because it had been so long since the last time I tuned in. First, I checked out The Bear, only to find commercials. So I next switched to The Bounce, and to my surprise, I heard that annoying Crazy Frog Axel F song!
You know, the song based on the ringtone that knocked Coldplay out of first place in the British music charts a while back. I couldn’t believe it! Anyway, I switched to Joe FM, and listened to that for a while. Then, around six, I switched to 96X and guess what was number eight on the hot 9 at 6? That damn frog!
So I’m going to have to burn some new CD’s tonight, or transfer more music to my Zen. In case you’re new to the frog, here’s the story from Wikipedia:
Crazy Frog is the marketing title of a ring tone based on The Annoying Thing, a computer animation created by Erik Wernquist. The animation was originally created to accompany a sound effect produced by Daniel Malmedahl whilst attempting to imitate the sound of a two-stroke moped engine. The advertising of the Crazy Frog brand has drawn a great deal of criticism, with advertising authorities being inundated with complaints about the frequency and focus of the adverts, and the display of the frog’s genitalia.
I guess I should just be happy I don’t live in Britain.
