It's more for getting the lyrics of a song.

OK. I use google for that :wink:

I actually also used Shazam to get the name of a tune off top gear recently. A song I'd first heard when clubbing and off my tits on E many years before. Needless to say it didn't sound as good as I remembered.

Doom's Night by Azzido da Bass. The Timo Maas version. I think.

Now I think about it, it was at one of the last deep water soloing festivals they had in Dorset. Top day doing some mad DWS at Connor's Cove, then dancing away in a field all night to some top tunes. And lying on the beach at Lulworth the next day trying to get my head straight for some more DWS.

Making friend with the onshore breeze. Kitesurfing is fun!

Offshore = surf, onshore = KITEsurf. No wind = sleep!

Wind is my friend, not my enemy. Thank you Aeolus.

Seeing flock of usually hostile seaguls suffering from PTSD and going really quiet after a weekend of window-shattering air-show and a massive fireworks last night.

They though they ruled the sky and the beach-goer's fishy fishy chips. NOT. Back in your cage guls!
