I just realized that if I do The Devil Went Down to
Silicon Valley, I won't have to finish the other song that I've
never been able to finish. This is a great relief to me. Of course,
this presumes that I can finish The Devil Went Down to Silicon
Valley, but for Pete's sake, it's a parody of
an existing song! I don't think I've ever had to leave a song parody

Here is my hypothesis: When originally broadcast on the BBC, the
My Word announcer said, "The BBC present: My Word!".
When rebroadcast on American radio, they added in an "s" sound to
accomadate American usage, causing the announcer to say, "The BBC
present-ss: My Word!" rather creepily.
