Don't read this. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. No you've started reading this don't stop this is so freaky. But if you read this and ignore it you will have very bad luck. Put this on 15 songs in 144 mins. When you are done press space bar and your crushes name will appear in big letters on the screen this so freaky it actually works

Hello CD listeners. We've come to the point on this album where those listening on cassette, or records, will have to stand up or sit down and turn over the record, or tape. In fairness to those listeners we will now take a few seconds before we begin side two. Thank you, here is side two.
