Sung

Well, this song started out as a tribute to "Vagabond" by Air and Beck, a slow bluesy electronic piece that I like a lot. Then I tried to write lyrics for it, but I didn't come up with much and came to think of an old Built to Spill song where they quote various rock'n'roll bands through time, so I did a twist on it...
