I love the new Napster

Downloaded it last week, decided to try it out for a month, purely as a streaming music service. It's not perfect (lacking some remarkably common music), but it has a vast amount so I can always find _something_ I fancy.

Sat down at father's computer. Realised there was no music there that I wanted to listen to. Downloaded Napster. Logged in. Did a search for Pink Floyd. Found Pulse. selected Run Like Hell (live).

Total time from logging in to ridiculous echoey guitar solos - less than 5 minutes.

Well that's me happy.

(no subject)

There is no pain, you are receding.
A distant ship’s smoke on the horizon.
You are only coming through in waves.
Your lips move but I can’t hear what you’re sayin’.
When I was a child I had a fever.
My hands felt just like two balloons.
Now I got that feeling once again.
I can’t explain, you would not understand.
This is not how I am.
I have become comfortably numb.

When I was a child I caught a fleeting glimpse,
Out of the corner of my eye.
I turned to look but it was gone.
I cannot put my finger on it now.
The child is grown, the dream is gone.
I have become comfortably numb.

If there's any finer songs none are springing to mind right now.
