Never met anyone who actively hates music.

That's why I love this place.

I love music - certain kinds anyway - but I totally agree with you about its misuse, or overuse. Especially in tv and film these days. Intrusive music can ruin a film almost singlehandedly.

Hey,

Just thinkin' would anyone be up for building a collaborative WB playlist on Spotify?

Would be a cool way to discover new music I'm reckoning. If interested let me know and I'll post a link, all you have to do is 'follow' the playlist and add whatever you want to it.

That's a wonderful idea. Would be a fun way to paint another community --

I just found this one from a friend of a friend:

We Are the Massacre by World's End Girlfriend -- 100% instrumental

I forgot how much I liked the reverb effect

Steve Earle's Down The Road https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zK5YFk5TFWc

For whatever reason, all my kids liked this song as a bedtime lullaby - I sang this and The Hooters Were Did The Children Go?

Not my favorite song from the 1980s, not the best song from the 1980s, but the song that is the 1980s
