Addicted to another song.

The mood is incredible. The base sample is incredible. The beat is incredible.
It's slower, more mellow, less densely layered, and it's a lot shorter than the vast majority of their tracks, but it's really gorgeous in a way that I don't think I can explain. It literally gave me goosebumps when I listened to it earlier.

Love Mad
It's a million miles an hour
Makes you suffocate
Today a shower rained over my head
It came down
Beyond my wildest dreams
And my dreams were wild...

{Samples of women saying "when you leave, take me with you" ... "I want you"... "I need you"}

Now the time is in my hands
Your temptation turns me upside down
I'm drowning
Listen to the sound of love
Your dreams will be wild.

{"when you leave, take me with you"... "I want you" ... "I need you"}


I have pretty particular and possibly peculiar taste in music. So when anyone says to be "oh, download this, you'll like it," or "go buy this CD, you'll really love it," I'm pretty dubious, yet open minded.
I know they mean well, it just doesn't usually work out and I hate having to tell them that I really didn't like it, especially if it's something they adore.
So far, I don't think there's been anything, not one thing, that Karl has told me to download that I haven't really liked, if not completely loved. Of course, I sat one day and listened to his stream (HiFi (cable/dsl), LoFi(56K).... yes, I have to link it *every* time I mention it) and gave him a list of songs I liked and why. We've had many conversations about music and likes and dislikes and he's exposed me to enough of a range of his own music that he can sort of figure out what I may or may not like.
Generally, I like all the things he's clued me in to.
That's very strange and incredibly refreshing.

Yes, actually I have. But I've never heard them. I checked out the ftp I'm always sucking dry and lo... there was a Hive album (Devious Methods)... so I'm snagging a track to check it out.
