Building a Basket Case -- I wanted to make one more piece in response to the Jammie Thomas case (she's the woman who was recently fined $220,000 for illegal file sharing). I'm bothered by the extreme position of the RIAA. More than that, it bothers me that they justify their actions by claiming to be looking out for the musicians, who often profit least from their own work.
Anyway, I looked at Jammie's playlist and compared it to the music I had sitting around the house. Today's piece combines Green Day's Basket Case with Sarah McLachlan's Building a Mystery, both songs from her list.
