Turning over the toy box and jamming together the gloriously mismatched musical Lincoln Logs, Legos and Tinker Toys from Tin Pan Alley pluggers, pickled egg tavern weepers, lockstep soul ensembles, skinny-tie power poppers, Eurotrash ravers, moontanned art school rockers, drunken soccer anthems and anything else that seems like a good idea at the time. There are no guilty pleasures.

Hey Danny! Congratulations!
Avatar Fri. 6/29/18 12:51pm Lane Gray:

I think there's something inherent in a I-ii-V chord progression (for those not used to numbers, in G that'd be G-Am-D) that lends itself to earworminess. It's the same progression as Seasons In The Sun or the Bocephus-penned "Blues Man."

UM, And congratulations to you on your anniversary! Sorry the weather's so dang miserable. You'll make it.

@NGH: Shit-gibbon says that incites criminal behavior.
Avatar Fri. 6/29/18 1:28pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Clicky star fun fact: If you favorite a song, and then the DJ edits the text (artist/track/album), your favorite is moved over to the new spelling. And if the new spelling matches an already-existing artist/track/album, your favorite is merged into that existing one.

Related fact: Sometimes, you favorite a song, and then a little while later you notice the star unfilling itself. Fear not! It will fill itself back in on its own momentarily. It's just a temporary artifact of the DJ having renamed the track.
Avatar Fri. 6/29/18 1:28pm Uncle Michael:

The Shit Gibbons would be a fine band name.
