Mrs B. Got an Amazon prime type thing and showed me how to download and play music.

I just downloaded 40 odd hours of Queen, macc lads, scorpions, and various sci fi/tv themes, and it sounds brilliant through that little bean can sized speaker.

Get it to play the Joe 90 theme when you are getting ready to go out.

Not Alexa, I heard that Siri will sing along to AC/DC's Highway to Hell if you play it. Might be an urban myth.

If you're at a friends house and they have one, while they're out of the room say to Alexa "Alexa, remind me in three hours: I could kill you at any time."
