Jesus Would Be Pissed

Sealed with a Fall Equinox

by Brad Nelson9/21/16

First, let’s let Bobby Vinton (or it it Jason Donovan?) set up this next segment with a rendition of Sealed with a Kiss whose primary thought is “Though we’ve got to say goodbye for the summer.” It’s a romantic song. More » • (519 views)
