Most of the example songs in that list I find ... uninspiring. I'll offer one of my own, as a palette cleanser.

Yes. Good job. Your example is much more palatable. Crap challenge.

Also Australian possums make one of the most blood-curdling hiss-growl-screams known to human kind.
Yes. They do. But I think that is only when they are having sex. It’s weird - but I have had little luck in finding romantic partners wanting to experiment with “ possum-style”.

Huh, I turn 47 next month. I guess that means I should do a song. Plus, it's FAWM.
47 was a great year. I won Nur Ein when I was 47. Went to SF live in DC. The peak misery preceded it. 47 was my rebirth year.

Re: Cooking

Actually I take it back, the cooktop DOES get that loud in power boost mode. However you only rarely use that, like when making tea. Most of the time it’ll be at a much lower power level and then it’s pretty quiet. Why are you making tea on a stove top? It that some weird leftover from your pre-rev...

yeah but LibreOffice doesn't work in LibreOffice
I have just started using it - I am impressed so far.

It works fine for my Excel files - some of which are really heavy with graphs etc. I was surprised.

It works way better than trying to use Numbers on my Mac. That is complete rubbish
