So it's between 9 and 10 in the morning, and I'm doing things on-line. I have a long playlist going at MusicMatch, stuff from my own eras gone by, like

Goodbye To Love (The Carpenters), Stoned In Love (The Stylistics), Early In The Morning (Vanity Fare), Come Saturday Morning (The Sandpipers), etc, etc....

I need to run out of my office and into the rec-room for something. Simon & Garfunkels' "The Dangling Conversation" is playing. I've been sort of singing along with the song, and as I get up and head for the other room I continue doing so. This is about a 70 second project.

I get back to my office, still singing along, and find that Paul, Art and I are still in perfect sync:

"Yes we speak of things that matter, with words that must be said,
can analysis be worthwhile, is the theatre really dead?"

Gives me pause for thought, am I that easily hypnotized?... then the song ends and another one I've liked a lot, untireably, for about a quarter of a century, commences,

A Girl In Trouble (is a temporary thing) by Romeo Void. I must admit that it's one track I've never begrudged (or failed to begrudge) anything whatsoever about the subject or whatever -- I just love the sax music, the instrumental theme and the way it all goes with every aspect of the vocal. I might well be able to listen to it over-and-over, without a dinner break.

What? Y'ain't hearda' Romeo Void!?
