The Waterboys are, for me, in almost constant rotation. I have "nuff respect" for their "Dream Harder" and "Rock In The Weary Land" albums. The former contains the Glastonbury Song, which sends me (and anybody who's ever been to said festival and enjoyed it) into near-paroxysms of yearning nostalgic joy every time I hear it. The latter contains "We Are Jonah", one of the most uplifting rock songs ever written by anyone, I reckon.

I'm sure that comes on at the end of one of those girly films...one of those ones with that lindsey lohan in. Missus was watching it and that came in at credits and I was like wtf?

Similar, but does anyone remember Golden Girls - Kinetic? Absolute stone cold early rave/acid classic. Prok & Fitch did a good true t' original breakbeat mix fairly recently too

Ace of Base did a song called I Stole the Sun?

I've been listening to mostly new music recently, but I was listening to Kate Bush a couple of weeks ago.

With very few exceptions, "new music" to me stops in the late 90s very early 2000s. Grunge ftw.

KINETIC - Confused you will be. This track has been classed as an Orbital remix under the artist names of either "The Pied Piper" or "The Golden Girls". So what happened ?....ok read on

The original "Kinetic" track appeared on the "Hooked on Hope Ep" which was released by "The Pied Piper" (Absolute 2 Records - ABS 002 DJ). For those who have heard this original track and the Orbital remixed track will realise how totally different they each sound.

Orbital reworked the track for an old friend from school (The Pied Piper) and a new tune was born! For this reason they decided to release the track under the name of "The Golden Girls". Its one of Orbital's classic collaborations/remixes and not a difficult one to find as Distinct'ive re-released the already re-released track.

Yeah I remember hearing that when I first heard the track and was looking for other stuff by them. Never did manage to get around to finding the original - is it good?

Release seems pretty cheap on discogs, may have to see if I can bundle it in with an order some time.
