In the day. Prior to cell phones and the internet. Once upon a time there was this movie called "Jaws." I would awake early, hearing my parents' radio in the kitchen. WBZ and Dave Maynard and ads for "Jaws" commingling with lyrical pitches for Heineken:

‘Whenever I see a windmill turning, against the Holland skies so clear: Suddenly, I get this tremendous yearning for the special taste of Heineken beer! Of all imported beers, only one is number one…'

So many years later, I still love "Jaws" and Heineken and films with a music score that becomes an elemental character.
