Man, I was walking near the beach today and someone drove by blasting UB40's cover of "Red Red Wine". I hate UB40. I hate them a lot. A few minutes later I was going in the water, and it was cold. Colder than I expected, so I did what I often do. I tried to distract myself from the water temperature by singing a song in my head, the first one that came to mind. Trouble was, it was a UB40D. I had to think of something else, stat. Thankfully Dr. Alimantado's "I Killed the Barber" came to mind quickly, the result of a recent spin. Just about the polar opposite of UB40. Kinda. Enough.
