Storyline

Martin has been internally recording Earth music for a couple hundred years, and can call up any song within his internal library. At a folk music club, Martin drinks a cappuccino containing cinnamon to which he reacts. It turns on his recorder playback, and a folk song spews out of him. His "singing" is a hit with the club patrons. The club is owned by Tim's current flame, Della, who tries to persuade Tim to persuade Martin to sing at the club to help the business. Martin reluctantly agrees. However the fame and adulation quickly go to Martin's head. To snap Martin out of this earthly emotion, Tim tries to break Martin's playback function with a large dose of cinnamon, even if this hurts Della's business. The cinnamon does the trick with the playback mechanism as well as Martin's sensibilities. However they now have to try and fix the playback so that Martin can sing one last time to keep Della's business from going under. Written by Huggo
