One of the sexiest songs ever.

This mid-90s track is the definition of intriguing - intriguing video, intriguing lyrics, intriguing arrangement, intriguing key (not many Db minors come to mind). I love the mood this song captures as a result. Sour times indeed. "Who am I, what and why? 'Cause all I have left is my memories of yesterday. Oh these sour times" I think we can all relate with that state when you're told your relationship is over, and there is mystery and deception in the autopsy of it. I have always been a fan of phrases that change meaning as they unfold...Because nobody loves me/ It's true/ Not like you do... this is going places most bands don't attempt to go. It's evocative, intelligent, inspiring, hugely theatrical and entertaining. It's my little antidote for the endlessly Christmasy muzak of the shops at the moment!   16
