And to think, people are still giving Alanis hell about the misuse of ironic.

Below are lyrics pulled from The Who's new track, Mirror Door.

Howlin' Wolf and Ol' Link Wray, Dave Van Ronk and Doris Day,
Bobby Darin and Brownie McGee, Elvis, Buddy, and Eddie C.
Music makes me, makes me strong, Strong vibrations make me long,
Long for a place where I belong, You will find me in this song.

Notice anything wrong with the above list of now-dead-and-gone performers? One's still in the buffet line. Doris Day, at 82, is alive and smiling in Carmel, CA. When Pete Townshend was informed of this in a recent issue of Q magazine, he responded, "I was convinced she was dead."

Given his penchant for porn, I'm more amused about the line "strong vibrations make me long."
