Sometimes, Humanity Shows It Still Has Hope

As I was getting dressed for work this morning, or more correctly, dawdling over getting dressed for work this morning, I spied a post over at that Reddit place asking why people like music or songs in languages they do not understand.  Now, I've participated in a few threads like this in the past and have a stock answer: "You're wondering why people like this?"  But as I looked through the thread, two comments leaped out at me.  The first was a relative newby asking for music from anime... "I've seen FMA, and that had good music.  Is there anything better?"  A few moments later, I had posted God Knows...,  which even if you're tired of the whole Haruhi thing, you've got to admit is a pretty darn good song, Undine which is a beautiful song that can still bring me to tears, and my latest OP obsession, Live for Life from Ben-To!.  I felt smug.  Not for any good reason, I just felt like I had dropped a bomb on this rookie's musical world.  As it turns out, the responses have been quite positive.


But it was the other comment I saw that was really important.  It was from someone who's a big fan of K-Pop.  Now I know practically nothing about K-Pop in general; Gangam Style and some other tunes I may have stumbled across here or there, but there was one burning question I needed to ask... "Do you know anything about the band Rubber Duckie?"  While he didn't, another comment soon appeared: their album is available on eBay Korea, but no English site that they could find had it.  Which made me sad.  And then came a small miracle: "I found that song on Youtube for you."
It's been a crappy couple of weeks at work.  I'm still getting over that bastard of a virus.  My left hip hurts.  I'm rather unhappy with a lot of things.  But this?  

This made me happy.
