Re: 1190: "Time"

I play Lindsey Stirling when driving, and a surprising number of my passengers recognise her and approve, given how different our other musical preferences are. On the one hand, she's a violinist that plays classical-electro-pop-rock with some dubstep thrown in. There's a little smething there for ...
