This afternoon our little son said to me “Mummy, which song is this guitar riff from?” and he sang:
“Doo doo doooooo doo doo dee doo. Doo doo doooooo. doo doooo.”
It was so familiar but I couldn’t figure out which song it was. We got on Spotify and I looked through Metallica, AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, Guns ‘n’ Roses, ’70s rock playlists, ’80s rock playlists, ’90s rock playlists but we had no luck.
I asked Mr Worms, who was pruning the apricot trees. He scratched his sweaty brow and swung the pruning saw from a thoughtful hand. But no, he couldn’t place it either.
Tonight, just before dinner, I said to our son “Sing, it again. Remind me. I want to ask Google.” So I did. I said to Google “Do you know this song?” And I sang the riff our son remembered.
Google thought for a bit and then up it popped… “Smoke on the Water” by Deep Purple!
I really didn’t know that Google would be able to do that.
