I'm not born as an English speaker, so I don't really care about the lyrics when I'm having a catastrophe.

Niether am I. There are some albums I like to listen at certain times, occasions or circumstances, but that's quite different. I've never been superstitious about anything, and certainly not the music I like.

If flying is safer than crossing the road why don't we fly across the road? If jet fighters have ejector seats why don't they have them on jet airliners? Why don't aircraft have a huge paracute strapped to the fuselage? Or why don't they inflate the lifejackets and rafts with helium? Why do they tell you to adopt the 'crash' position, can't we adopt the 'bit of bump and gentle roll to a stop' survival position instead?
And why do they ask you to put on that ridiculous seatbelt, as if that's going to save you from a plane crash LOL it's only so they will have it easier for identifying the corpses from the seat number they are tied to!

I never listen to Genesis when I'm scuba diving. It's the acoustics as well as the fear of the many Phil Collins fans amongst orcas.

The car was a total write off, the CD I was listening to at the time, somehow ended up behind my seat, about a billion scratches on it.

It was `The Byrds - Younger Than Yesterday', and I've still got that very same ruined CD....I don't know whether it's bad luck or good luck....Needless to say it's not in my new car anymore, and no accidents since!

Oh, and I didn't get even a single scratch. The ambulance and polcie were in total disbelief.


That's because you are a goddam superhero. :) so glad you were ok from that. :)

Well I did crash my nice BMW back in 2009 and I was listening to STILL REMAINS by FATES WARNING.
I have not had that song playing in the car since. Some omens are true!!! Lol

Brave soul.

What music would she like? I'm thinking the Black Rain soundtrack by Hanz Zimmer. Lol
