F.R. David's "Words" is - both - the greatest song ever made and the greatest crappiest video ever recorded. It is the first song I liked and it single-handedly made me into a music collectr0. Hence, it should be my [un]official theme song :headphones:

To know these songs is to know a little bit about Bitter Almonds. Is that a good thing, a bad bad thing, or a meh thing? Why does there have to be a choice :beatnik:

3. Sketch For Summer - The Durutti Column (never heard of them before)

9. Uncertain Smile - The The (would have liked it more without the vocals, but the instrumentation is great)

You WOULD choose The Durutti Column. I suggest listening to the whole first coupla albums and, if you like what you hear, pretty much anything up 1988 :headphones:

I love "Uncertain Smile." It's been my unofficial heartbreak theme song. Instrumentation by Jools Holland, of Squeeze (genius). The extended version goes way off in the instrumental part and clocks at almost 9 minutes :beatnik:

Whew! That was a tough one!!!

With the whole hoo-haw about the world cup being held in SA, I had a dream. I dreamt that South Africa was located just east of Canada/northeast of the US. I was looking at a map and thought, "Hey, it's not so bad. I could probably say 'hi' to Sue :cool: " Then, I woke up :P
