24 - Time Is Running Out - Doppler Effect   1984  (2:50)


And there's some boffo music on here, too.  I want to quote Track 5 all the time.  Track 14 is one I love to spring on the (grand)kids.  Everybody's got 'em!  And Track 15 is an absolute hoot, even if a bit countrified and twangy.  Track 17 represents the threat which home taping poses to the world economy.  Track 18 is the embodiment of every adolescent's inchoate yearning for the opposite sex.  Look up the title of Track 20; it was a drug which early experiments suggested *might* aid in memory retention.

And on the wonderful music goes!

Now away with thee, until Monday cometh!
