Damn it's getting crazy everybody's going. I was just talking the other day about - I'm the operator of my pocket calculator with my buddy. Now I'm going to have to listen to some KW.

They were the pioneers of electronic music. 

I have Autobahn.  I don't listen to it often. But every few years I throw it on and enjoy it. It's very relaxing for sure. And so different from most of the stuff I usually listen to.  I will have to listen to it tonight. Been a while.
