Ben Folds/Nick Hornby – Saskia Hamilton (video: Charlie McDonnell aka charlieissocoollike)
I’m a former linguist – though really, linguistics is like the CIA or the Mafia; once you’re in you never really get out. (I keep waiting for the day the messenger comes from Linguistics Central to pull me back in. Then I get to say “I’m getting too old for this shit” and fly off into the jungle for one last mission.)
Anyway, this song is one of the few I’m aware of with a linguistics theme, and it’s quirky fun – moreso because of the silliness of Charlie McDonnell’s video. Certainly made my Monday morning a wee bit better.
