    Life During Wartime

    'I got some groceries, some peanut butter to last a couple of days.' Genius? I think so. This song gets me through all the hard times. It's just wonderful, makes you smile. It's not just nonsense, it all makes sense. The Talking Heads rock :D. Listen to 'Life During...

    I can enjoy just about any kind of music except for country. This morning I started listening to Frank Sinatra and have now switched to Korn. I'd say that's a little variation.
