Re: Errors in the 2018 update

The Shamen’s ”Pro>gen” and ”Move Any Mountain” should be merged into one song entry, I think. In fact, after a comment by Sweepstakes Ron a couple of years ago, I thought I had already made this change.

Re: Playlist: A Taste of Acclaimed Albums (work in progress)

Haha, it seems that every time you (have to) write about George Michael, he is becoming less and less likable to you.

You weren’t that negative about him when we met. I suppose you didn’t want to ruin our evening. ;)

I also want to add that ”Faith” is far from my favourite album of his.
