How excellent! If you can learn those words, no feat of memorization could
be barred to you. And the one you are quoting, is it Nemesis or Big Black
Nemesis? - oh, it's just classic, a great song. But how can I mention that
without citing to Everything That Rises Must Converge or Hammerheads? I'm
going to have to listen to it tonight. Any band that would name a song
Coelecanth was a band for me, I always knew.

imo - I think you should - especially knowing how fun it was!
Someday I'll do it again. My friend's dad is about 70 now and has been a
jazz aficionado since his teens - now he has a radio show at the local
college - full circle since his undergrad d.j. days and loving it.
"God save hammerheads, bold and resolute
Not too clever, but sure about some things.
Yes! Yes! Hammerheads, bright and dangerous -
marching, balancing and in too far to go back."

P.s. I just can't keep up with all the interesting reply-worthy things
everyone is saying....
