You're good at them, too! You sure you haven't got the same playlist as me?

The version on my playlist is by Massive Attack, who I slightly prefer to Tricky, but you raise an interesting point: would they count as separate songs? Personally, I don't think so.

6. - snap! ("Tinseltown In The Rain")

That's it -- you're going on my flist. How many people have The Blue Nile on party shuffle? And you're a New Order-fan, too...:D

18. Is that "History Repeating" by Some Dance Dudes and Shirley Bassey?

It is.

I think I prefer the Tricky version, because I first saw it on video, and the video is just lovely.

:D "party shuffle". One day I'm going to get the right software to make music videos just so I can force my more obscure music choices on people...

  • 8 Jul 2020, 01:03
    I'm glad the move went so well. It sounds like it might be a great place for her.
