Leon in Pennsylvania writes: I would press my head gently to my wife's belly and sing "Randy Described Eternity" to both my daughters as they were still taking form and it was my go to indie rock lullaby to sing them to sleep in our nursery rocking chair. I didn't realize how much it had stuck until a couple years ago when my oldest daughter Lily Harper (now 14) who has cancer asked me to sing it to her as we drove to yet another predawn MRI. Music matters. Thank you! ~Leon in Manheim, PA
