The oldest recording of the human voice - made 17 years before Thomas Edison invented the phonograph - has been discovered and played back by audio researchers.

The 10-second recording is of a person singing a snippet of a French folk song, 'Au clair de la lune', and was recorded on April 9, 1860 by Parisian inventor Édouard-Léon Scott de Martinville, the historians say.

Yeah, that Jackle dude posted this earlier. It sounds really crappy. And I wanna know how they replayed it if it was just some scratches on a piece of paper covered in candle soot.

EDIT: Nevermind I think he posted a different article on this because I don't remember seeing the part about them scanning the papers..

You keep seeing songs like KoC, SMBH, and Hysteria showing up on games, but I want Micro Cuts on either Rock Band or Sing Star. I want to see numerous masses of kids staring at the tv wondering what the hell they're supposed to do.

He probably dug up a copy of the original he had in the basement. He's old, you know.

I think men 100+ years ago had significantly smaller balls than we do today. Their voices are so high pitched and girly.
