Today , we (my friends and I ) were sitting in the brickyard enjoying the listening party a fellow student was having . While everyone was listening , I decided to use this as a learning exercise we discussed in class . The excitement did not calm down for another 2-3 hours because it was a benefit show as well . While listening to the music , I found myself digging deeper into the lyrics to find the complete meaning of every song . By this , I could make a song list for my friend [banner_entry_middle]
