Each song is fine, but a few observations:
  • Track #3 is an interesting tale about a Beast numbered 6-6-6
  • I dare you to listen to Track #5 and not think it's Joni Mitchell singing
  • The cranial swaps described in Track #14 aren't necessarily part of a horror movie ... they're another way of describing "look at things from a different point of view"
  • Who couldn't love a song with the title "She Snickers Euphonic Barf"?
  • Track #26 is a sad-but-true observation of many public figures even today *sigh*

See you on Thursday with another comp!
