Frou Frou

Amanda and I were driving home from the mountains this morning when this song came on...

...and we both sighed at the same time. We were transported back to when we were 17, cruising around, she in the driver seat with me as the passenger, feeling young and hopeful. The very importance of the song is in its lyrics: "Music is worthless unless it can make a complete stranger break down and cry." It's the most magical, mysterious thing about music. A song is like a time capsule. You experience it and are immediately transported to the time in your life the song is connected to. Pure magic.
