    Apparently Trana doesn't agree with this mindset !

    It certainly feels that way. But I'm distrustful of that feeling and am curious about evidence.

    Gotta admit, if you told me you were taking a Clash tune, I'd have come up with about a dozen or so others in front of that one.

    Not me. I'm saving all my vetoes for Rush songs.

    Seriously, it's not like it's a bad song. It's just not one of the first dozen or so I'd come up with.

    I thought that was a great first pick and in the spirit of what I had in mind when I set this up.

    Part nostalgia pick, Dire Straits, Brothers In Arms was the first album I ever bought ...

    ... and part, best mid-tempo rock n' roll song of all time IMO

    revo grabbed my first pick with Layla- but I would have went more traditional than the movie sound track. I was hoping it would make it to me but not surprised it didn't.
