I have a WAV of the original song; if anybody wants me to email it to them, PM me your email addy.

The problem I have is that "literally" is the only word we have left to mean "in truth."

Truly -- which should mean "in truth" -- has come to mean "lots and lots" -- e.g. "She was truly ugly" or "I was truly pissed."

Really -- which should mean "in reality" -- also means "lots and lots."

Now "literally" is going the same route. We already have words -- lots and lots of them -- that mean "a whole bunch." We don't NEED another.
