     Flaco Jiménez     "La Tumba Sera El Final" (2:44)     1999     Sounds Like: Your heart being squished in an accordion! This song falls into the "so romantic, it will make you cry till Sunday" category, but also in the "it helps to know a little Spanish" category. The title, which roughly transla...

     The Cyrkle     "Turn-Down Day" (2:32)     1966     Sounds Like: Good, old-fashioned, half-baked sitar pop.     It's too bad the Cyrkle never had any more than two hits (this song and "Red Rubber Ball"). The band was the epitome of the rare good pop band--one composed of catchy hooks and melodic, no...

     True Steppers/Dane Bowers/Victoria Adams     "Out Of Your Mind" (3:32)     2000     Sounds Like: The dance club hit that never was.     Hey clubbers and Euro pop enthusiasts, listen up! If you crave a tight beat and something which doesn't sound like Daniel Bedingfield's whiny "Gotta Get Thru This,"...

     Ludwig van Beethoven     "Piano Sonata No.14, Op.27/2, First movement, Sonata     quasi una fantasia, in the key of C-sharp Minor" (16:20)     1801     Sounds Like: The best song to feel the worst to in     classic form.     The first movement known as the "Moonlight" sonata is probably one...

     After marching up the large cement hill, in the rain, wearing four-inch heels and one hell of a burgundy dress, I finally found myself lost in a sea of navy blue uniforms, sailor suits and olive green uniforms. Thank God my arm was linked with my date, so I wouldn't have to play a game of "Where's Waldo" in order to...

     I know some people believe that the new trilogy does not live up to the original. But I have to say with a thunderous shout that, "You're WRONG!"     The new trilogy rocks and is the perfect supplement to the first three films released back in 1977, 1980, and 1983. These "new" films, set to come out in 1999, 20...
