If you dropped a 1998 Honda Civic into a mossy forest, the forest might wince a little. If you dropped Bowie’s “The Width of a Circle” onto a starry plain, a great beauty would ensue. If you dropped “Talking in Your Sleep” by The Romantics . . . well, you get the idea. I try to go for the former and not the latter.
