Sinatra's version of "Downtown" is hysterical - sounds like he's coughing up hairballs.
  Wed. 8/18/10 7:21pm Cisco Kid:

Thanks for the Coil, it brought back memories. Coil are still one of my all-time fave groups, and that's such an oddly accessible track for them. Sounds like a bit like YMO or something
  Wed. 8/18/10 7:21pm Vicki:

ha ha
do you know that Guy Sherwin film - "Careful", Mr Fab? It's got a Hairball reference
  Wed. 8/18/10 7:22pm Sinatra:

Dey made me covah for da stoopid kids.
  Wed. 8/18/10 7:22pm Vicki:

same here, re Coil. Although it makes me sad
  Wed. 8/18/10 7:27pm Doug in Canada:

Look what you did ... everyone went quiet ...
  Wed. 8/18/10 7:27pm Vicki:

I know...!!!! I was just thinking that
  Wed. 8/18/10 7:28pm Vicki:

  Wed. 8/18/10 7:29pm Vicki:

  Wed. 8/18/10 7:29pm jonathan:

  Wed. 8/18/10 7:38pm Vicki:

I remember when they chucked him out
  Wed. 8/18/10 7:39pm Phil:

  Wed. 8/18/10 7:39pm Rick:

  Wed. 8/18/10 7:39pm Doug in Canada:

Well, he couldn't manage the hair-style ...
