Canon for Music on College Campuses

I am proposing a new "rule" regarding music on college campuses, based on years of experience:

DeMizio's Canon for Music on College Campuses: At any given moment on at least 50% of the college campuses in the US, someone will be playing the song "Livin' on a Prayer" by Bon Jovi.
Corollary 1:At least 50% of the times that it is played, at least one person can also be heard yelling loudly to the music, attempting to sing it, off key.
Corollary 2:When played, the song has the power to penetrate most walls, including concrete and cinderblock.
Corollary 3:The percentages are significantly higher if it is past 5pm or before noon.

The DCMCC is not necessarily a bad thing. It's not a bad song by any means. It just tends to travel.

That's all for now...the law kind of randomly stuck me today at rehearsal.

[Listening to: "Winding Road", by Bonnie Somerville from the album "Garden State"]
