    People come, view, listen etc... and wonder what they might say... about these sound-tracks.
    And the computer's time-out setting switches them on to either a blank screen or just a still picture.
    The moment passes and they are lost as respondents.

    I remember our mutual-virtual friend @Novalis' comment about "Love Story". When very young, Child-Novalis was so totally overwrought reading that novella. After she grew up a little, she migrated to wanting a puking bucket at the mention of that story.

    All of these are easy on the ears. Nice tunes to fall asleep to, when not overcome by negatives :facepalm: that are only distantly connected to the soundtracks.

    @Amulet
    Oh, my God! I was snooping in here with some old tunes that helped me grow up musically. I least expected Novalis would be dragged here to put me in my place!
    Of course, they are but I still prefer Wodehouse.
