On The Spot

Katie Parent
I keep singing it until it goes way; I had one a couple days ago.
~ Katie Parent, Beacon

John Stowell
You have to play the song backward, like the Beatles album!
~ John Stowell, Cold Spring

Sydney Kirk
If it’s an annoying song, I think about one I really like.
~ Sydney Kirk, Beacon
