    Celine Dion singing "O' Holy Night". When the orchestra kicks in, the floor rumbles! :p :D B)
    Most people just listen to music and watch movies. I EXPERIENCE them.

    Love can move mountains is killer on the SDA’s, I have seen her in Vegas many years ago, she was incredible, probably the best venue I have ever been in..

    Lol, I don't think your punishment will be too harsh. Twenty pushups ought to cover it. Honor system. Besides, there's got to be some distinction between a guilty pleasure and downright embarrassing. I know a guy who liked to crank Sailing by Christopher Cross on his SDAs. He doesn't post here anymore, but I still won't out him... :p

    I think "Stranglehold" has been played the loudest on my SDA-SRS2's.

    I had some DJ/Band speakers that I played louder maybe, but not with the stranglehold song.

    No problem there. Unless you're not talking Uncle Ted.

    I love the opening two tracks of The Beatles “Love” soundtrack from the Vegas show... I turn it up to a level just below hearing the drivers pop, turn off the lights and close my eyes.

    If the Beatles ever performed live again, I can only imagine their show may have opened like this, and those big SDA’s make it feel like I got front row seats.

    Saying that it's "too hard" to pursue your dreams is no different than admitting to yourself that you are too lazy to achieve them.

    Is that while you are still thinking of Celine?
