    As Ms Kat is fully aware, I am a huge fan of Mark Oliver Everett otherwise known as E and the band The Eels. As great as “Daisies” is, I think that E’s masterpiece is “Blinking Lights and Other Revelations” and the climax to that fantastic double disc is “Things The Grandchildren should know”. This to me is a song of hope and optimism.
    The song demands that you listen, go read about Mark’s life and understand why he wrote it. It is the work of genius and for me the finest moment in a catalogue of wonderful songs.

    Thank you Kat, and I hope that Team KTCC love this choice as much as I do.
