"I Can Hear You" as written by John Linnell and John Flansburgh....
I can hear you by they might be giants.
Made at the Edison laboratories.

I can hear you
Just barely hear you
I can just barely hear you

This is a warning
Step away from the car
This car is protected by viper

Guess where I am
I'm calling from the plane
I'll call you when I get there

You won't hear a buzz
But I'm buzzing you in
I'm buzzing you in

What's your order?
I can super-size that
Please bring your car around

I can hear you
Just barely hear you
I can just barely hear you

    General CommentWell, all of the verses describe modern situations where a voice would be muffled and distorted (fast food drive thru windows, talking car alarms, the voice box at the door of apartment buildings, etc.), and of course because it's recorded on wax cylinder, the song itself is also muffled and distorted. So I guess it's saying that we have all this high tech audio equipment around, but you still can't understand the guy at the drive-thru window.

    General CommentSome songs have no real meaning. This was just some fun using modern ideas on a wax cylinder.
