Ah, right. My mother was 27 when she had me. But my grandmother was 18 (nearly 19) when she had my mother, so ...

it's just one of those things that they do that I really like. There's a couple of songs by them that have just one or two moments in them that I like more than the rest of the song (In A Little While ~ Rocketship Line for one)
Ah, yeah. The rocketship verse is the only tolerable part of IALW to me.

I have no idea what a Howie Day song is meant to sound like.

402 and 404 were the rockin' ones, 400 became WITS, and 403 was that cliche Thank You track.

What a random thing to agree on

Satellite of Love is the other one (I realize though it's not their song) where there's only like one or two lines I really like: I watched it for a little while/I love to watch things on TV

IT WAS 403!

Howie Day (though I actually kind of like him) is a 00s adult alternative singer, which is why I hated the idea that anything U2 sang sounded like him to me at all.

Holy shit, Truenorth by No-Man is easily one of the best songs Steven Wilson has ever been involved with. This is one of the most beautiful atmospheric tracks I have ever heard. And for once I'm thankful Tim Bowness rather than SW handles No-Man's vocals, because I cannot at all see SW singing this.

Heh, the Satellite cover just bores me. I've never paid much attention to it to develop either a particular fondness or a particular hatred of anything there. It's simply an automatic skip.

Ahh, right. 403 is called Thank You (For The Day) and has been performed live by Lanois on occasions. I doubt it'll make it to the album; I sure hope not anyway, as the lyrics floating around are just dumb. More over-obvious bollocks, really.

Ashley, I see you have Spirited Away in your signature. Do you like any other Japanese animated films?

Random question but what does the word 'daft' actually mean?

'Daft' is stupid or foolish, though not perhaps as harsh. I see a progression: silly --> daft --> stupid. It also has connotations of senselessness, of simply just not thinking. "What he did was just daft!"

Screw, I pretty much stick to Studio Ghibli when it comes to Japanese Animation, not a big fan of Anime, though I won't not watch it either

Ah, thanks. Emma has used the word before but I never fully understood what that meant.

Huh I must've missed that along the way. Lanois sang the song? Was it like a full song and did anyone ever like record it?
