My weekly Spotify customized mixtape shocked me today. It had some ‘to be expected’ but hadn’t heard in a while (112, DeBarge), and some of the usual (New Order). But then, it broke out something I hadn’t heard in decades! ‘Waiting for the Star to Fall’ – Boy meets Girl. Who remembers this song?

We buy into fear; that’s why so many news networks have all this fear-mongering. It sickens me.
