Or, for the oldies, what's it all about, Alfie?

Forgive my ignorance, but i had to google that song. Goes to show I'm no oldie, hehe. (^_^)y
Now that I've read the lyrics, I think it's a great encapsulation of the book. Thanks for introducing me to it, sir.

I can't believe you've never heard of that song before! And you won't believe it too that I do not know any radiohead song altho I knew, before your review, that radiohead is a band from somewhere.

The lyrics are simple yet profound, so I'm eager to find out how the actual song goes. Radiohead's
was most recently adapted for the theatrical trailer of
The Social Network

I imagined that Radiohead is one of your favorite bands. Try OK Computer and Kid A, two of their better albums. Creep not included. I don't like that one. Too familiar. It was once a national videoke song.

Nice observations on your part. Thanks for taking the effort. Couple things I missed: the relevance of the font paragraph, and A/B as record sides.

What an insightful and provocative review. I am interested in reading other books you've reviewed just for the pleasure of your writing. Thank you. I too loved this book but could never describe why as eloquently as you have.
