Gotta have that "New LP," even if I'm a "New Wave Robot"!  Don't tell me we're "Just Friends" -- "You Can't Do That" to me!  I want to be "Special to You," but "Everything I Say Is a Lie."  I know you're confused, "It Shows in Your Face."  "I Don't Dream Anymore," I want "Anything Real."

And so on ...

You may always tell me your opinion of the assemblage.  See you on Monday!
