Mythical giants once roamed the land; flawed gods dispensing unfettered joy and happiness wherever they stopped for an hour or two. Women threw their affections with abandon at them. Men gave them magical potions to fuel their journeys and soaked in their effervescence.

What long-term effects do songs that we’re exposed to early have on our adult tastes?
