Just caught the bartender shazamming a lauryn hill song. Cannot make this up.— David Jacobs (@djacobs) May 17, 2012
For whatever reason1, Lauryn Hill has come up in a bunch of different contexts in recent conversation. In the scenario above, the bartender in question offered the following: "I knew it was Lauryn Hill, but I want to remember to listen to the song again later." And I think I buy that. Even If it was a lie, that was a pretty great one to come up with on the spot.
I've also recommended Jay Smooth's Ill Doctrine episode about some fans' tortured relationship with Lauryn Hill a few times recently. Here it is, for easy reference!
1Actually I know the reason, because her albums were amazing, and great albums tend to echo over years and emerge from your subconscious when you don't expect it.
