A man loved a woman, a child it was born
It learned how to hurt and it learned how to cry

    I love this song. It makes me feel all warm inside. Maybe because of the nostalgia.

    Best 'sample music' song ever included in a Microsoft Operating System, excluding Buddy Holly by Weezer on Windows 95's 'bonus' folder and 'Ninja Tuna' by Mr. Scruff.

    I thought it came bundled with the upgrade to Windows Media Player v8, not necessarily an XP thing. I'm probably wrong though.

    I used to think I was such a badass when I listened to this in the computer lap of my elementary school... this song is bittersweet for a lot of reasons.

    I'm not sure if I ever played this on Windows XP or not.

    I remember when I was little I heard this song in WinXP and got hooked on it, and it was the first song that really made me interested in music (I was 5 or 6 at the time). At school we had to design an album cover for a band we liked as part of Art class, and the only musician I knew was David Byrne because of this song so I drew a picture of humans doing stuff :L
