Hello Music Lovers-
It’s always a trip to go on-line and look up an old acquaintance, a girlfriend or boyfriend and see how they are doing and what they’re up to.
And if you find they’re in a new relationship, sometimes you can’t help but reach out to their new mate and reveal a deep, dark secret about your ex, either out of jealousy, spite or just to be an asshole.
That’s what the Saratoga Springs, NY rock band, Probing Digit does in Song Snatch #177 in their touching ballad, “Over And Over”.
(episode running time- 4 minutes and 41 seconds)
(You can hear more Probing Digit songs at www.probingdigit.com, watch the video to “Over And Over” at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dARqfCWdSq4, and download their songs wherever fine music is sold.)
