Cliffs new song 'What Car' I think it's called, must be the most ridiculous and diabolical tune he's ever written. Awful.

Cliif - retire.

Either that, or do a tour where u play the following (very short) set:-

1) We Don't Talk Anymore
2) Wired For Sound
3) True Love Ways
4) She Means Nothing To Me

Encore:-

1) Saviours Day
2) Bachelor Boy
