"The stars will always shine, the birds will always sing..."

I remember my brother offering to mix me a tape once, and I took too long to get him the list, but I remember that one of my geeky dance pleasures was the "Always Coca-Cola" dance remix from 1993. I was a year out of high school at that point, so don't ask me where I heard it, but it was just too catchy to ignore. And thanks to the wonders of YouTube, I can now inflict my guilty pleasure on you. And not just the 50 second commercial version, oh no. This is the full three minutes plus version.

One of the comments on a version of the video claims that "Another Night" by the Real McCoy was inspired by this tune. What do you think?

Oh 1993, you crazy thing, you!

John Hodgman points out that the Vancouver Olympic mascots not only include a Sasquatch but that they also have their own mascot:

Their website even pays indirect homage to Hodgman by asking their version of "Which superpower would want?"
