And With an Arrest, Trial and Conviction, We Can Make an Album

Sign o’ the times. Making its debut on the Billboard Hot 100 hit list at No. 89–just below Justin Bieber and Young Jeezy, and a spot above Brad Paisley–is an Internet interloper: The “Bed Intruder Song,” the latest in the Auto-Tune the News series from the Gregory Brothers. It is undoubtedly the catchiest song ever adapted from a TV interview of a man who thwarted an attempted rape. The video became an immediate YouTube hit when it was posted a few weeks ago, and hot sales of an expanded version in the iTunes music store propelled the song onto the mainstream charts.

About Voices

Along with original content and posts from across the Dow Jones network, this section of AllThingsD includes Must-Reads From Other Websites — pieces we’ve read, discussions we’ve followed, stuff we like. Six posts from external sites are included here each weekday, but we only run the headlines. We link to the original sites for the rest. These posts are explicitly labeled, so it’s clear that the content comes from other websites, and for clarity’s sake, all outside posts run against a pink background.

We also solicit original full-length posts and accept some unsolicited submissions.
