Has anyone read Catch-22. I'm sure some of you have. I just finished it again and it's simply my favorite book of all time.

Anyway, there's a song by Phantom Planet called "Wishing Well" and I think the lyrics/music really fit with the Eternal City chapter where Yossarian is walking the streets of Rome while he's AWOL.


"Wishing Well" - Phantom Planet

It cursed us all on our way home
We passed the sights like passing stones
And I will never go back there again
The tourists and the army men
The prostitutes this evening
Will start to sink under my skin
The dust and sand is what they sell
The flashing lights and ringing bells
A wish as far as I can tell
Inside this dried up wishing well

He is the shrieks, I am the fear
That yelling man rings in my ears
Out of his mind, he's my conscience
Hour after hour, pill after pill
He is my bellyache, I've taken so much medicine to kill
I know there's something wrong
'Cause this night just drags on and on
The clock still says it won't be long
'Til all your hard-earned money's gone

The dust and sand is what they sell
The flashing lights and ringing bells
A wish as far as I can tell
Inside this dried up wishing well...
