True story.

Was Dickless in the choir?

Is it just me or is anyone else perplexed by why Carol Of The Bells is
a Christmas song? The lyrics are fine, but whenever I hear that
melody repeating over and over it immediately reminds me of the theme
song from some sort of horror movie, maybe Halloween or Jaws.

Also, there's something about the repetition that makes it sound like
the person playing is going mad. I mean insane.

Lastly, the loud overly done version that's played on the radio kind
of reminds me of a scene from an action movie where huge buildings or
blowing up.

In any case, although I don't celebrate Christmas, this song has
always confused me because none of this imagery seems associated with
the idea of peaceful happy times.

Weird.

LOL!

Bet they played some ABBA!

That's even worse than the movie music.

I know. I was there. Remember? No need to remind me.

You're the one who brought it up. It's time to pluto the ABBA
arrangements.

Its time to pluto Dickless and band music too.

Didn't Tholen already get pluto'd? I wonder if his petition
accomplished
anything.

It wouldn't once he starts arguing with them. I think you know what I
mean.

Good point.


Non sequitur and rather ironic.


What does that have to do with classical music?


On what basis do you make that k'lame?
