Only if we're marking it down.
Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.

It’s that glint in his eye, that promises romance, or maybe he’ll give you a good price when he tarmacs your drive- there’s something for everyone to enjoy.

It's okay, in a nostalgic cheesey 70s way, but there's nothing great about it that needs reappraisal.

The key, of course, is the question 'Would anyone be interested in this who didn't remember it from the first time around' and I suspect there wouldn't be.

I think we've already come to a consensus about this on the travellers thread.
The Happy Mondays were disqualified from a special edition of the BBC’s Bargain Hunt after Bez broke the show’s rules by artificially inflating prices, handing victory to Pulp.

I only found out recently that the godlike Rock On was produced by Jeff Wayne.

If I Could is really lovely. Quite a nod fashioned song from 2018. It could have been written any time from the 30s up to the late 70s, but hardly since. It's like a caesura in romance occurred.
