Lots to cover in today’s Quickies, so let’s not waste any more time. Here’s what we missed today:

A lot of people weren’t all that nuts over the title track, but this one’s gotten a better reception thus far. (I’d have to go with the reverse, personally.) Anyway, that’ll do it for this edition. Check back tomorrow for more from Horns Up!
