Sped or speeded?

with 4 comments

I found these when I was looking for something else on an old disc full of crap that I’d once cleaned off my hard drive. They’re from about four years ago, when I first got a sound editing program on my computer. As you’ll be able to tell, I was just mucking about. Not clever, not really very interesting, but they make me giggle: sped (or should it be ‘speeded’?) up versions of Teenage Kicks by The Undertones and Close To You by The Carpenters.

  1. Speeded. ‘Sped’ is the verb – ‘he sped off’ – ‘speeded’ is the adjective.

    Maybe. Dunno really. All I know is that ‘dove’ (as the past tense of ‘dive’) is very wrong and is solely used by cretins specifically to annoy me. Grrr.

  2. So it’s “dived,” then?
    I was always unsure about that one, too.

  4. Pinky and Perky do Teenage Kicks. You just know that Peelie would be spinning in his grave, don’t you?

    See The Dickies did that kind of stuff and they weren’t clever either. Or maybe they were; Paranoid and Banana Splits at 100mph anyone?:P
