I’ve got this song stuck in my head now. It’s Do-Re-Mi from The Sound of Music, which is probably a better song to be stuck than say, The Lemon Tree, We’re In Trouble or The Ketchup Song.

I found this file sharing service online that’s free of charge. So here’s a folder of 7 music files if you’re so inclined. It contains English, German, French, Chinese and Russian songs.
Julie Andrews et. al. - Do-Re-Mi (English musical)
Vanilla Ninja - I Don’t Care At All (Estonian band, in English)
Blümchen - Herz an Herz (German techno-pop)
Isabelle Boulay - Et Maintenant (French-Canadian, in French)
Ortal - Chacun Pense A Soi (French)
Soviet Red Army Choir - Battle Hymn of the Republic (Russian)
Teresa Teng - 月亮代表我的心 (Mandarin)

From the bottom of the table, click on the free service. Then scroll down to the bottom of the next page and wait for the 30 second timer to count down to zero. Click on the filename and save it to your local disc.


This link on wikipedia made me go “Mein Gott.” Can you imagine this kind of stuff turning up in your Encyclopaedia Britannica?
