One night, upon being suitably stressed (due to an unending stream of work) and drunk (to get over the stress by having a couple of pints while I worked), I realized that the most important messages for humanity was not going to come from outer space. All kinds of messages already exist amidst us, in a form not yet recognised -- song lyrics. Musicians, being more sensitive and stoned than normal human beings, have been conversing with each other through lyrics of their songs, asking questions important to the human race and answering them. I have been able to discover some of their conversations, which are reproduced below for your benefit. The list, I must add, is far from complete, and these days I am working on full fledged conversations, not just Q/A sessions.
Q. BTW, which one's pink?
A. Pink isn't well, he's staying back at the hotel.
Pink Floyd ask a question and answer it themselves.
Q. How many roads must a man walk down before you call him a man?
A. There are two paths you can go by, but in the long run there's still time to change the road you are on.

Q. Have I told you lately?
A. Shut up and dance.
Rod Stewart asks Aerosmith.
Q. Where have all the cowboys gone?

Paula Cole and John Lennon talk.
Q. Have you ever seen the rain?
A. The Sun is cold, the rain is hot.

Q. Hey, Andy, did you hear about this one?
A. All lies and jest, still a man hears what he wants to hear, and disregards the rest.
