I hear Saint-Exupéry used to listen to Samson all the time.

If you happen to be, say, cutting ten thousand words out of a manuscript and need something to listen to, may I suggest the New Wave of British Heavy Metal?  Steve Harris will communicate directly with your subconscious and let you know what parts don’t need to be there.  It was very helpful.  Thanks, Steve.

Also, anyone who doesn’t like Turbo and Ram It Down is nuts.

Indisputable visual evidence:

Yeah, I’m a little bit giddy right now.  Ten thousand words was a lot.
