Sucks, because I love Mike Scott, and Morricone is my go-to writing music for certain moods. But there it is, and there’s enough music out there (We have grown apart, music and I…There’s been too much of it, Malach says in the back of my head…) for me to find something else that will work.

So, what’s your anthem today? Give me some new music, my doves. Lili is listening.
