Musical Interlude: Johnny Mandel - Suicide is Painless

 I'll admit it.  I didn't know the tune I knew as "the M*A*S*H theme" had lyrics until hearing it for the first time, in the middle of the last decade, on Luxuriamusic.  Now I can't help singing the lyrics whenever M*A*S*H is on TV!


The title is a touchy subject for me, especially during the holiday season, as I've lost several friends to suicide over the years.  Having said that (and not wanting to get into it further), I do rather enjoy the song.  It sounds like a Beach Boys tune!

All of us (me) here at C&S wish our readers all the best for the holiday season, and we will be back in a few days when we talk about... never mind.  It's a surprise!
