    Alas, the person I studied with was strict and wanted me to throw away all my music. They wanted me to listen solely to the Kingdumb Sxxx in lieu of music.

    I didn't actually throw away all my music because I hinted that such a move would derail the whole study. But they were very vocal in such music as Led Zeppelin and the likes. I did like songs like Kodachrome and Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting (embedded in tapes--have fun trying to find them and get rid of them!). They also frowned heavily on my Michael Jackson's Thriller--even though his disassociation was in 1987 and that LP came out in 1982, they felt that I was supporting "that apostate" by listening to the record instead of throwing it away.

    Of course, I had to get rid of a lot of music by relegating it to inactive status. Where the songs were copied onto tapes, often purging it meant finding another song that is the same length (and the tapes sounded much more boring when finished than the originals did). The first wave were for the really bad stuff like Do They Know It's Christmas and Ratt's Lay It Down. The second wave, several years later, was for thinning the songs like Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting, We Are the World (can't you just see the demons coming out of that song?), and Steal Away by Robbie DuPree (also, Hot Rod Hearts).

    Needless to say, I could use yottabytes listing all the songs I gained back after I blew off the Tower. All the ones I lost, I gained back. I also got the Led Zeppelin songs I didn't the first time around, along with Michael Jackson's Bad and Dangerous (which I didn't get the first time). And the filthiest rap I can get my hands on. Needless to say, that study conductor would not be too happy upon seeing my CD collection now.

    For me it always had to be Blasphemous Rumours - Depeche Mode - Lyrics Below

    Girl of sixteen, whole life ahead of her
    Slashed her wrists, bored with life
    Didnt succeed, thank the lord
    For small mercies

    Fighting back the tears, mother reads the note again
    Sixteen candles burn in her mind
    She takes the blame, its always the same
    She goes down on her knees and prays

    I dont want to start any blasphemous rumours
    But I think that gods got a sick sense of humor
    And when I die I expect to find him laughing

    Girl of eighteen, fell in love with everything
    Found new life in jesus christ
    Hit by a car, ended up
    On a life support machine

    Summers day, as she passed away
    Birds were singing in the summer sky
    Then came the rain, and once again
    A tear fell from her mothers eye

    I dont want to start any blasphemous rumours
    But I think that gods got a sick sense of humor
    And when I die I expect to find him laughing

    Oh We dig rock singers We've got golden fingers And they love us where we go We Sing about beauty and We Sing about truth at $10,000 a show. We take all kinds of pills that give us all kinds of thrills, but the thrill we've never known, is the thrill that'll getcha when you get your picture on the cover of the rolling stone. Chorus: Rolling Stone, gonna see my picture on the cover Going to buy 5 copies for my mother, Gonna see my smiling face on the cover of the Rolling Stone.

    Love Depeche Mode. I guess you could add "Master and Servant" and "Strangelove" to the list.
