Track 02 - "Say Goodbye to Hollywood", Billy Joel

If there was one thing that Wesley realised Angel Investigations did on an exceptionally rare basis, it was actual detective work. Despite the phrasing on the business cards, almost never did they play the traditional roles of investigators and detectives. Most of the time, either they sought out the supernatural threats or those adversaries found them first.

Bobby's drivin' through the city tonight
Through the lights in a hot new rent-a-car
He joins the lovers in his heavy machine
It's a scene down on Sunset Boulevard
Say goodbye to Hollywood
Say goodbye, my baby

Mr. Kumet ran the liquor store on the same block as Wesley's apartment, and the two had shared more than one conversation about wine. When the man had called Wesley distraught and frantic, the tale he told sounded more than up AI's alley.

Track 01 - "The Stranger", Billy Joel

Well, we all have a face that we hide away forever
And we take them out and show ourselves when everyone has gone.
Some are satin, some are steel,
Some are silk and some are leather.
They're the faces of the stranger,
But we love to try them on.

More than once in these past few months, I have looked at myself in the mirror and not recognised the hard, cold eyes that stared back at me. His expression is so serious and determined that his mouth has been drawn into a tight, cruel line. The man in the mirror is a product of his circumstances, born of the deeds of others and the choices I myself made and for which I myself must pay.

More disconcerting, though, is how easily and how comfortably into that stranger's skin I have slipped.
