Some music for your party. It is a party after all, get up and dance. None of this relaxing sounds of Martin Denny nonsense.
*John and Marsha live in a subdivision a) not serviced by the bus and b) full of convoluted streets. That makes directing a taxi driver an exasperating task when sober, let alone when coming home from a Tiki party.
