k.offer.radi.you. – Dandeleon

Here’s the danger in having every band i could want available to me in mp3 form, downloading them on the regard they in the slightest way are made appealing through whatever tags or referenced bands the uploader uses, without a care to listen to them immediately, or ever. I am not as bad as some people though.

I know there’s something to cringe about here. I am fully aware. But it is the kind of song that plays and i just sit there, eyes closed, smiling, completely absorbed and content, allowing a small, personal delight to warm over me, neither happy nor sad but satisfied and on my way to somewhere.

Why did i decide to download it? And is this even the real song title? The crucial question in this day of unreliable mp3 tagging.
