    I heard that about this song. Was a big hit in the ninties, then a big hit more than a decade later. How do the British justify this?? Seems like they are into old stuff again periodically.

    I never stopped listening to this.....it’s like my clothes, if I wear them long enough they eventually come back in fashion

    See I would never heard this song without the British making it repopulate again. Was still kicking around years later after the second chart climb in all kinds of remixes for clubs. I still hear it periodically.

    I hate that band. The other band that Brits love that I don't get is Muse.

    I'm not mad fussed about them either, their live shows here are really revered though. I've never seen them.

    Yeah. I’ve heard their live shows are great. I just can’t get over the singer’s whiny operatic voice he sings like he’s crying. Reminds me of broadway show tunes. Sounds like something to be figure skated too. Cheesy lyrics too.

    Their music is very good, and their live shows are incredible.

    This is how you do a Radio One live performance:

    Who sounds EXACTLY THE SAME live as they do on their album? Nobody in the last 20 years, that's who. Except this talented ginger fuck.

    I'm sorry (I'm not) but every other BBC One live performance is shit in comparison.

    I bought one of their albums years ago and wasn't into it at all. I think the tracks they release are pretty good but that didn't hold my attention at all.

    What's up with the British obsession with Doctor Who? Show is garbage.

    Yep, I like it too. They're supposed to be brilliant to see after a few psychedelics. I won't touch it anymore but I always wanted to see MGMT while tripping out for that reason.

    I gave up on that years ago, the David Tennant Christmas specials and the episodes with The Master were awesome though.

    It's for kids really, but some of it was pretty scary. The daleks had me hiding behind the sofa.
