You forgot our National Anthem as well.

I think it sounds like a Stylophone, but what are they saying? There are (female) voices recorded on that record, but I can't quite tell what they're saying.

I figured it out: Woman 1: "Another one's coming up." Woman 2: "Keep on counting."

There was a computer music surface... Thingy...... that took up more space in a room than 5000000000 iPod nanos ..... No small ipod docks were used.... Instead they used huge, Ginormous speakers which took up not one but 4 whole rooms.... A happy story indeed.... Thank god for this
