"The casserole was good and the drives were so nice. Welcome to the worst part of your life."
I'd also entertain notions that "Check Fraud" (vocal version) and "What-A-Day Day" by the same artist could be nominated, but by gum does that turntable solo kick ass and flip genres.

this was the only song i really had in my head to play this week, but the hitman went ahead and played him recently. i'm gonna go ahead and ignore it, and play this track anyway as i'm driving up to the cities today.
