Groups of Fire
Johnny Cash sang about a "Ring of Fire". Big Country sang about "Fields of Fire". Clearly, somebody has to record a song about Groups of Fire. It would provide a sense of completion. This is what I think about when I am dazed, and I am seeing rings and other algebraic structures show up in a talk. It also reminds me of comments I made as an undergrad about Killing fields. Update: Also, "ring of functions" naturally makes my mind blurt "ring of fire".
