Yeah, but I don't play them much any more, mainly due to over-exposure.

You have no idea how much my mother played Bittersweet Symphony back when it was new.

I can imagine. My mother loves that song too. It's a keeper, but I've always thought Ashcroft's vocal brought it down.

He's the weak link in the band, IMO.

Let's not jinx it. The thread is slowing down.

LMP may be able to help speed things up when he gets back.

His solo career proves your point too.

My mother was actually the Verve fan first. She loved Bittersweet Symphony and then heard a couple of other songs on the radio and bought Urban Hymns. She isn't so keen on the heavier, more distorted tracks, but I am.

Wow I can't believe anyone likes Bittersweet Symphony other than people that only listen to Triple M and my aunt.

Well, that's the world for you, always something new.

Worst comes to the worst, Ian and I aren't exactly short on photos.

Chris Martin apparently thinks it's the best song ever or something.

Yes.

Although i didn't think he'd kick it.

Plus side: 2 competition points we didn't expect. Bye next week = two more points, then the dead last team at Mt Smart in two weeks time.

In theory the three weeks should be worth six points.

Okay people, let's talk about ugly shoes.

I spotted these today in a thrift store:



Bright pink stiletto heeled ankle boots, laced up with a wide silver strap, forming a velcro closure. CLASSY.

Yeah, most of the first record is, including Already There. The later stuff, not so much.
