    At least Uber or Lyft haven’t hijacked Drive My Car - yet.
    Drives me nuts!
    I recall one early morning in the hospital I was working on being put on telephone hold and a Muzak version of Aqualung serenaded me. That was in the early to mid ‘90’s after a certain political family ruined a certain Fleetwood Mac song for me.

    The "Sex, Drugs and Rock and Roll" generation now wants no rock and roll in their Viagra commercials...too funny.

    Sorry, I don’t mean to be controversial but if I want to improve my life I should do everything for free? :confused:

    The long list of side effects is the best part of those commercials. It's especially hilarious when a drug to treat a relatively minor ailment contains a list of far more severe side effects

    There should be nothing controversial about incentives. Otherwise it would be impossible to determine the value of any endeavor.

    Suddenly, almost overnight, the amazing music got cheap.
    Well, not really cheap: "here's $50,000, can we use your Top 10 tune to sell shampoo?"

    Right! Is it really worth risking your life to cure toenail fungus? Even if "footloose" is playing in the background.

    Throwing your TV into the trash is a punk move that deserves punk music.

    Depends on the song..."Hold Your Head Up", "The Rising", "The Hokey Pokey", "Thick As A Brick", "Downtown", and many others all help to get the point across....so to speak.

    I haven't had a tv in over 20 years.
    It's like fast food...you can only tolerate it if you let it drag you down to its level
    Sometimes I see a little and it"s shocking.

    With all respect guys, I wasn't inferring everything should be done for free.....maybe I should have said to eliminate the "greed" factor. And by the way....MONEY doesn't always indicate the VALUE of something. And there are other "incentives" than financial ones.
    I'm often reminded of an Oscar Wilde quote....."They (the subject of a conversation) know the PRICE of everything, and the VALUE of nothing."
    I'm not a "dirty Commie".....but maybe my priorities are different from yours. ;)

    I don’t think you’re a “Dirty Commie”.
