6/11/07 Show - The Classics

Yes the classics. The post-punk and new wave songs that will be remembered long after we're dead. And there is a reason for that. Them being remembered. Not only because our ghosts will haunt future generations and occasionally sing these songs but because they truly were great. Do we all get a little sick of them sometimes? Sure. Were there other post-punk and new wave songs deserving, sometimes more deserving, that should be remembered instead? Perhaps. Do I like asking myself questions and then answering them? A little bit. Am I going to stop doing it? Probably. Should I maybe stop doing it now and talk about something, anything else, maybe even ghosts? Okay okay, I'll talk about ghosts. Ghosts really like good music. You don't need a solid body to enjoy music. Ghosts also get to look back at their life with 20/20 vision and realize certain things, important things like, "I should have eaten more toast" or "Man, those classic post-punk and new wave songs really were good - much better than I might have given them credit for in my sad, toast-less life."
So here's your chance to avoid that gloomy future. Take a moment to appreciate and re-realize what made these songs classics in the first place. And if you get a little hungry in the process, consider having a slice of toast. You can even ask yourself if you want toast and then answer yourself too. It really is fun! And here's that mp3 link:
