The rants of a constantly ticking mind, combined with a mess of reviews and obscure titling methods.

Best. Comment. Ever.

It made me laugh that a comment for a song on stated:

"Good to see I'm not the only person who tagged this song CORRECTLY. :D"

The song in question? Why, it was The Flaming Lips with 'What Is The Light? (An untested hypothesis suggesting that the
chemical (in our brains) by which we are able to experience the
sensation of being in love is the same chemical that caused the "Big Bang" that was the birth of the accelerating universe)' from their seminal album 'The Soft Bulletin'!

However, if you search on Amazon (and the like) you won't see it like that - oh no! - because you only saw their full titles if you opened the case.

If you want to see the other wacky names for the songs (not like you care) look no further than The Flaming Lips' own site:

where you can also find out about such things as the album that requires 4 hi-fis to listen to correctly and a series of concerts entitled 'The Park Lot Experiments' and 'The Boombox Experiments' - concerts where the audience of 50-odd each have a cassette of sounds which have to be played under instruction... weirdness.
