You have included "Say it ain't so, Joe" by Murray Head. If you pay attention to your previous
minxy comments, i think you'll find they bear this out.

Anyway, i feel i should now offer myself to you, naked on a silver platter, decorated with strawberries and chocolate, just for liking that song. No one i know has ever heard of it; i could cry.

Oh and "Teardrop" by Massive Attack? the most hauntingly beautiful song in the world...

difficult to pick a favourite as they are all good BUT either Emmylou's 'Wrecking Ball' or Massive Attacks 'Teardrop' gets my vote!!
