Did you know that the awesome 80's hit "99 Luftballoons" ("99 Red Balloons"), while being a really peppy-sounding song (musically), is about a nuclear holocaust
? I didn't. A definite landmark in the fun music coupled with depressing lyrics rock and roll catalogue. (title ref here
, although the music from this song is more sweet than fun - the lyrical twist is certainly shocking, though)
In other pop culture news, it's almost December, which means Garry
should be coming out with his Top 5 Albums of 2006 sometime soon (to go with his now-revised Top 5 movies of '06) . I've already got my top 3 ready for you, Garry. As for movies, the two at the top of my almost-year-end list are "Thank You for Smoking", and "Inside Man". I'll have to think more on the others.
