The Classics

That ancient art form whose medium is sound.
Melody, harmony, rhythm and inspiration.

I listened to this song on repeat one day for almost five hours, simply over and over. One of the most beautiful songs ever.

If I had one song as a theme for my life, this would be it. Simply listen to the lyrics. Could be a theme song for DS.

May surprise some, but this is my all-time favorite song. I've loved it since I was a kid. Such a beautiful story song, images, characters, love it.

Yeah, Boston is cool... I had a friend back in high school that was all about Boston. He filled me on all kinds of Boston factoids like the guitarist invented the electronic device (Rockman) that affected the guitar to sound the way it does... which was adopted and used by many artists afterwards.

Yeah, not many rock bands are formed at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. "While studying Quantum Physics, maybe we can write a song or two."

Why worry, by Dire Straits


I like the song, plus Dire Straits always reminds me of my Mama. :)
So, I'm dedicating this one to Mamma Mia.
