    Now that Detroit and much of the Northeast is cast in total darkness, I have the urge to grab a bass and my PX3B and learn to play the following topical songs. Feel free to add to my "Pitch Black Playlist"

    "Slippin' Into Darkness" War
    "The Night The Lights Went Out in Georgia" ??
    "Light Up The Night" Brothers Johnson
    "Running With The Night" Lionel Richie
    "Flashlight" Parliament

    Come On, gimme more. The power might be out for a while.
