I'm thinking he'd probably drive a Pinto, or maybe a Gremlin.
Ok, so this doesn't start sounding like the flufflist I'm going to get back
to the topic at hand. Did anyone suggest "Sister Morphine" by the Stones?
Also Marianne Faithful does an even better version of it.

When it got to "Why'd Ya Do It" I almost fell off my chair. That is
still one of the naughtiest songs I've ever heard. I wonder what Liz
Phair thinks of Marianne?
Ok, I just talked myself into playing something off this album. Tune
in www.wxdu.org. I probably will wait until 2pm to play it, though.
It's more of a Haywire than a Topsoil thing.
