I’m not really too sure what to post today either, so I’ll go back to one of the themes that I never have too much trouble with; music I’ve listened to way too many times.

All three of the music groups I’m about to post, I’ve listened to so many times that a good deal of their music is probably engraved somewhere on my brain:
