Note from mome rath: I'm pretty pleased with this one, although it did turn out a bit more melancholy than I originally intended - prepare to be depressed. The quote had such a film noir feel I couldn't resist putting some of that in, maybe someone could do an alternative happier mix, perhaps starting with Going to Georgia and working forward? There's a couple of clever links if I do say so myself...
