Copying tracks from a bloody 'enhanced' CD so I can play it at work without it launching and crashing my iMac. Well, that worked...
Song Survey from duranorak
What song or songs make you feel...
The Whole of the Moon – Waterboys, Ruby Red – Marc Almond, Sit Down - James, and the rest of my 'bootstraps' tape which I really must get on to CD now.
99 Red Balloons, Young Americans, Sloop John B... And Life's a Gas and French Fries with Pepper also make me mourn for the singers.
Certain Spaceman 3 tracks, because everybody I love can no longer be found here.
$10 Bill, Sheila Na Gig, Ich Bin Ein Auslander, Blister in the Sun, Dead Stars. I could go on…
