It used to be the only thing I knew by heart. Now I just know the french dialogue entirely by heart (salut, sylvie, on va la plage? - non, allons chez suzanne. - chez qui?):

To be or not to be. That is the question. Whether it is nobler to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune or to ... see that's all I fully remember. I have the book, but fuck it. You know it yourself.

anyhoo, this is about something different. This is about songs. A random sampling of favorites from hundreds:

- "say it ain't so" weezer
- "who are you" t. waits
