If you didn’t already click the hyperlink in today’s Monday Morning Memo, you’re going to have a second chance at the bottom of this rabbit hole. And you’re going to want to do it, too, because you’re going to want to see some more of these candid iPhone videos of the 17 Strangers that formed the Musicians Round Table of 2011. If memory serves, this song was written by Trisha Sylvestre, a self-described fruit stand operator in Canada. She’s also a wife and a Mom and the slightly self-conscious woman closest to the camera in the Wizard Academy Dancers video. She was given a maximum of 20 minutes to write the lyrics to the song below. Me like it. You like it, too? This is good. Patrick Sullivan, a vitamin salesman, is lead singer. The music to Trisha’s lyrics was written by J.D. Campbell, the bass player at the left of the screen. The 17 Strangers were composed of 4 amateur writers and 13 amateur musicians.
