    I was thinking of making a joke concerning the second song on Genesis' first album. But it turns out it's called "In The Beginning".

    Hussy used to mean housewife
    Egregious used to mean conspicuously good. Now it mean conspicuously bad.

    Famously, when Charles II saw Christopher Wren's St. Paul's Cathedral for the first time, he called it "awful, pompous, and artificial." Meaning roughly: Awesome, majestic, and ingenious.

    TL;DR - don't be a prat.

    Brexit used to mean Brexit.

    I had to google that one, it's not part of my Genesis collection (and with very good reason, it's pretty terrible). In future, I will listen to it less often, or on fewer occasions.

    I'm vaguely interested in the versions without strings. You can hear the beginnings of the Genesis sound, so for completeness, it's worth it.
