I just found my copy of Spice World at home.

It's in my stubby hands.

Why won't this fit in my DVD drive?

i actually had someone tell me a story of someone asking if dvds would play in their laserdisc player. they didn't even know it was a laserdisc player, they just thought it was like a huge dvd. yeah, totally different technology and stuff.

so timothius, you never answered my earlier question. i demand an answer!

The top 10-15% for the material is fantastic. Origional Sin, New Sensation, What You Need, By My Side, Never Tear Us Apart, Listen Like Thiefs etc etc. They wrote some damn good pop/rock that transcends the 1980's sound (which very little material from that era does.)

Despite this, me (being a massive mark for lyrics & concepts for songs) Hutch/Farriss et al never really cut it. The wrote some great love songs, they wrote some boring, repitious, semi melodic tunes that start nowhere and end 100 miles in the same direction. They're better than a lot of stuff nowadays mind you. I just never felt the real desire to succeed musically on a personal level, rather an need to succeed musically on a public level (i.e making it in the US & record sales).

They do arrange amazingly well though.

Also I'm also probably a bit bitter about how the Australian media & public glorifies them, when I've always felt Crowded House who should be getting at least some of the kudous.

okay yeah those are some of their best songs, although they do happen to have some excellent songs that you haven't mentioned. the best song of theirs is kiss the dirt, followed oh-so-closely by burn for you. if you don't like those two, then i think you need to be castrated.
