The Soundtrack: a small story

The Soundtrack

Darren was driving his mother’s car. His girlfriend Erica was looking for tapes in the glove compartment. She had just realized she had forgotten about the soundtrack, which might have spoiled everything. Darren’s mother’s cassette collection was limited to 1960s Rock and Roll compilations she’d gotten free from gas stations and Erica hadn’t envisioned losing her virginity to the strains of Gene Pitney. She suspected they had good reason now to turn the car around and abandon the whole thing altogether, but Darren would never agree to this. They were already more than halfway to the point, and besides they’d been planning tonight for ages.

Gene Pitney 1941-2006
Music legend and a fine form of birth control.
