Wonder what brought that song to mind…

“Alexa, play songs by Ai Shinozaki.”

“Shuffling songs by Usher.”

“Alexa, stop. Play ILBTs by Joe Walsh.”

“Playing ILBTs by Joe Walsh.”

Dear Wordscapes,

I don’t understand why you’re not accepting this 7-letter word…

The limits of AI…

“Alexa, play ‘My Freeze Ray’.”

“​‘My Freeze Ray’, by Various Artists.”

“Alexa, play the next song.”

“What do you want to play?”

“The next song from that album.”

What would you like to play next?”

“The rest of that album.”

“What do you want to play?”

“Forget about it.”

Dear Iyo Matsumoto,

That’s going to leave a mark.


Alexa, stop funking with me

“Alexa, play that funky music, white boy”.

“Play that funky music right.”

“Alexa, play the song ‘Play that funky music’.”

“Playing ‘Play that funky music 122bpm’ by Soulsearch.”

“Alexa, stop. Play Wild Cherry’s ‘Play that funky music’.”

“Playing ‘Play that funky music’ by Wild Cherry.”

“Alexa, play it again.”

Note: most lyrics sites have the first line of this song wrong, which is how this got started.


Amazon Music got their lyrics from one of the worst sites:

Yeah, there was a funky singer
Playin’ in a rock and roll band
And never had no problems yeah
Burnin’ down one night stands
And everything around me
Got to stop to feelin’ so low
And I decided quickly, yes I did
To disco down and check out the show

It’s like someone trying to quote a movie from memory after seeing it three months ago.
