Complete diversion here...
Brad Delong complained recently that Siri was interpreting "surely" as "Shirley". He doesn't even know anyone called Shirley.
And in the perverse way my brain works I was thinking back to a 1987 show by Billy Bragg at the Coogee Bay Hotel and him singing Greetings to the New Brunette. (It is a song about a relationship with "Shirley".)
Due to the magic of YouTube I could find a live recording of the same song from the same tour (this time in Wellington New Zealand).
There is no video - but headphones make it worthwhile:
