But it's just one of those mysteries of art: no one can pinpoint precisely what it is that hits listeners square on.
Oh. Well, I think it's one of the most unusual sounding. And it's a bit dark tinged, which I don't hear as much from Christine. Speaking of which, Think About Me is playing now, and it's totally normal sounding.
Anyway, yeah, what you said about art. Eww, SMAP. Must skip.
