Always question all authorities because the authority you don't question is the most dangerous... except me, never question me.

 I Love it Randy. Though I am not much tolerant of drugstore cowboys, I do like the big budget westerns. The music is often  classic and enduring. Magnificent Seven comes to mind.  High Noon and others too.

Davin I like the eight cello piece. It is a refreshing bit of music.

I like the Cyndi Lauper version of "When You Were Mine" better than the Prince version (blasphemy I know). And I think there's a punk version of the song (don't know the band) that's even better than the Cyndi Lauper version.

I must admit that I prefer the original Bolland & Bolland version

This person again with a cover near and dear to my heart, at least nostalgically.
