My two-and-a-half-track mind has a song stuck in it more often than not, and it's often something almost completely random; frequently I have NO idea what made it come to mind. This is one of those times. Consider it a possibly meaningless insight into how my brain functions (if that is the proper word for the operation of its virtual CD changer). - ZM
