Gwen Stefani will drop her second solo disc, titled "The Sweet Escape," on Dec. 5, but the first single, "Wind Me Up," has already hit the airwaves. The tune, produced by the Neptunes, prominently features a sample of "The Lonely Goatherd," yodeling and all, from "The Sound of Music," Stefani's favorite movie. Based on an unscientific poll conducted in the Globe newsroom, response to the song has been something along the lines of extreme wonderment. Judge for yourself; KISS 108 is spinning "Wind Me Up" locally.
