A Knowing Nod

Today while driving, I heard the oddest thing. While at a red light at State Street, I heard the song "Slaying the Dreamer" by Nightwish playing from the car next to me. For those of you who don't know (i.e., all of you), Nightwish is a symphonic power metal band popular in Europe but not especially well known in the United States. From my experience, metalheads seem to be a rarity, so it was quite a surprise to hear it emanating from somebody's car, let alone for that to have happened in Saginaw, Michigan.

And for it to have been a song I recognized too? What a strange and serendipitous coincidence. Soon I'll be hearing 80s Chinese pop music on the radio.
