Song of the Day Three, Pandora's Theme
I must admit, I expected something a bit more... dark for the theme of anything named Pandora. I believe the image I conjured was of a terrified young woman, dark hair whipping madly about her as she holds out a box from which darkness oozes and all evils fly from. The box is a perfect cube with ancient runes of binding a protection inscribed on all sides, and a lid formed of four triangles that are hinged on the edge. However, McVaffe apparently never heard of this myth, because Pandora's Theme seems to me to be a theme for a peaceful town. A town that, though not home, gives a sense of peace to our yet undefined hero. I mean, really, one might as well stick the name on any ridiculous thing now. Say, for example, a radio station. Wait; they did.
