Dad, I don't know if you remember this or not, but for a couple years when we lived in Cedar Falls you used to play the Smithereens album Especially for You pretty often. The first side, especially, I remember you listened to a lot.

I think one of the tests of a good pop song is whether it appeals to little kids. As a five-year-old with no preconceived notions of what was good and what was bad, I thought those songs were great, even though I didn't understand a lot of them. Anyway, I bought it a couple days ago and it's as good as I remember from 20 years ago. I just thought you might want to know.

Love,
Lindsey

Well, that was a little bit of a lie; I don't think it's quite as transcendent as I remember it being when I was five and Dad used to play it on the record player in our brown-shag-carpeted riving living room. Still: pretty damn good.
