-“Yearning,” The Californiacs
A new dance, a fox trot, with the title “Yearning,” had swept the world that winter. Once we had heard it we could not have enough of it. We were all soaked in it and intoxicated with it and everyone hummed the melody whenever it was played. I danced without stop and with anyone who came in my way, with quite young girls, with women in their earlier or their later prime, and with those who had sadly passed them both; and with them all I was enraptured – laughing, happy, radiant.
–Steppenwolf, Hermann Hesse
