ThatGuyGreg: Wait, people do this?

Of course people play music at their funerals. The pole dancers would look pretty stupid gyrating around in silence!

Diogenes: You're thinking of Taylor Swift.

No Taylor Swift sings pop songs. I was just thinking about it, I mean she wrote like an entire album dedicated to this guy breaking her heart. She won a ton of Grammy's for it. What's she going to do now that she's happy?

How does that guy feel that an entire album was written about him even if it was negative?

Tat'dGreaser: I was just thinking today, what is this chick going to do when she's happy and can't write an entire album about being dumped?

You're thinking of Taylor Swift.
