does anybody here remember vera lynn?
Not firsthand, but my grandparents had a couple of her albums.
They had a record changer that they kept loaded and playing softly all day long, mostly with big band and gypsy music though.

I'm sure everyone has heard "I'm in the Mood for Love" and "We'll Meet Again" since they've been in loads of movies.

She's far more than just a backing track on this side of the pond. It's hard to explain to USians as she's so embedded into British culture and connected to the civilian suffering of WWII (and its aftermath) and the promise of better times ahead. But if you were to mix Neil Armstrong, Wonderful Life, White Christmas and Rosa Parks, you get an idea.

"We'll Meet Again" makes a great funeral song if nothing else.

They should go the other way, and offer a refund for standard features that no BMW driver ever uses. Start with the indicators....

Also goes to show how little it costs them to put in the "extras" if they are willing to install them and not charge for them up front.
