Air Quotes

Have you ever heard someone say something that made you want to run to your computer/mobile device/word processor/tape recorder/pen and pad and start writing? It happens to me all the time. While listening to NPR this morning, I heard a review of a new album that features all sad songs. (I apologize for not remembering the name of the artist.)
