One of my favs talking to his favs

The only thing that would make this better would be if there were some clips of the songs you mention, but I understand the annoyance that could be. My mind is racing about the idea of a Damon / Ronson collab!

Epic! Iconic!

Love the entire season 1. Can’t wait for season 2.
