It has nothing to do with the lyrics, and it's so obvious, you're not even thinking about it.

I wasn't thinking of the Arizona lyrics. I can only think in terms of the chorus of Kicks ... "Kicks just keep getting harder to find". They don't play that when the kicker comes on the field do they? With Arizona, I'm lost. :P;)

And your #6 as well. I just checked, because I know "Up on a Roof" is a renomination from the very first T10, which it was nominated by you during that week. :D
