I heard the movie first and saw on a website that it was only 17 seconds in length so I wasn't surprised.

I was very shocked when I first heard the song because I also thought something was wrong with the disc. I felt dumb when I realized the song was only that long. I love all 17 seconds of it though!
Oh by the way, I've cracked the code.

So since I didn't have a whole lot of experience with CDs, I fell for the gag right away. I immediately thought to go to the store and ask for a replacement.

But then, I looked at the liner notes and saw that there were no lyrics listed for the song, so I knew it must have been intentional. I think the gag would have worked better if they included complete, phony lyrics in the liner notes. Then, everyone would really think there was a mistake on the disc and they'd run out to the stores and demand replacement copies only to find that their replacement had the exact same mistake on it! :lol:

I wonder if that was inspired by Al's college radio days, when he would start his show off with a needle being ripped off of Debbie Boone records....or if he got fed up with the song himself :lol:
in a complicated song does it look like al has no head

The funny thing is that when that song came out CDs were relatively a new product, so the gag worked. But now the gag doesn't work so well because we all know that CDs don't make that kind of sound.

I love the rip. That's one of the best turntable rips I have in my arsonal (which comes in handy for people like me who like to mix music).
