This afternoon my labmates asked me to settle an argument. They handed me some headphones and asked me who was singing. I put them on and heard what sounded like Aerosmith doing Dream On. I listened for a bit to make sure it really was Aerosmith, then ventured "umm...Steve Tyler?"
"How did you know that?" asked the woman who just lost the bet. "It doesn't sound anything like him!"
"Are you kidding? It's one of the most popular rock songs in history. I thought everyone knew that was Aerosmith."
"I didn't recognize it at all. You mean you've really heard it before?"
"Only about 1000 times." All before you were born!
Kids nowadays, with their hip hop and their iPods, I tell ya...
