Great thread!

You need to hear it to appreciate it's brilliance.. .. .I suppose it's timely, too, to mention System of a Down, though I feel they will really blossom during the coming Frogging season.. .. .Please note, Mr Drake did not write weird lyrics - just gently beautiful ones.. . . . <small>[ 09 March 2002, 12:24: Message edited by: NorthernSky ]</small>
