Lloyd Dobler will play you whatever song you like. Thank you Internet.

Remember Lloyd Dobler? “I’m the distraction that’s going with her to England” Lloyd Dobler? “I gave her my heart and she gave me a pen” Lloyd Dobler? If you’re of a certain age, it’s likely you were in love with him, or the idea of him. And you wanted a Lloyd Dobler to hold up a boom box and play you a song outside of your window because he was in love with you. Thanks to a nice little hack, Lloyd Dobler will play you a song! Anything on YouTube. Go ahead – put something in. You know, Rhianna’s S and M, Brittney’s Till The World Ends. Anything by Ke$ha. Or, how about this great monologue by Julia Sweeney on MPR’s Wits?
