    “Orange Crush” actually refers to Agent Orange from the Vietnam War, not the fruit orange from the drink. So, I am calling foul. Give us another orange that is the fruit, LOL!

    Fine then Matt, how about I use “Coconut” by Nilsson for Lime, so that I can use Bright Eyes’ “Bowl of Oranges?”

    “…we’d stand staring in awe at our still lives posed like a bowl of oranges.”


    How about the song “Apples and Oranges” by YOUR FAVORITE BAND EVER?
