The Moth Goes to the Flame Again

Yup, it had to happen. After buying and selling and buying and selling and.. well you get the idea... I've been through a fair few Linkstations and I had a review copy of the Linkstation Pro XHL.

Well I couldn't resist or find a better more economical solution so I bought a Linkstation Pro XHL without HDD which will be fitted with 1.5Tb drive and flashed to open firmware and have many goodies added to it.

Can't wait for delivery. Watch this space Linkstation fans! :D

Roxette - It Must Have Been Love

Funnily enough I worked for Barclays Bank some years ago (okay.... many years ago) and I recall one of the managers talking about how one of our account holders had recorded a single. Honestly can't remember if we held the account of Roxette or of the studio but the single was "The Look" from the album "Look Sharp". Ever since hearing that I've found I enjoyed the simple pop that Roxette record. Great vocals from Marie Fredriksson and Per Gessle too.

This particular track, apart form tugging at heartstrings and emotions (which not many records can truly do), was also on the sound track from the hit film Pretty Woman with Richard Gere and Julia Roberts. So many people have heard it there and many have seen the video on MTV.

Well worth a listen, as it the compilation of singles, "Don't Bore Us, Get to the Chorus".
