I don't know exactly. I listened to some of their albums and really liked them, and then didn't listen for about 3 months. When I put the albums back on, I just didn't like them as much, and they weren't as I remembered them. I still do like many of their songs, including that one, though.

That was a tough one; Pseudo Echo weren't the household name by me as they were by you.  I like it when this happens because it's like running into an old friend.

I haven't a clue with regards to the remaining two songs.

Those two are quite tough but I really thought the English would have known them  :-\\  One of them was a hit in England and the other was used a lot in an Irish series which aired here on the ABC.  However, I am fairly certain Bette Midler has covered it.

It's a nice song but Middler over-sells it a bit for my tastes.  She's a great entertainer but if I'm not watching her, I find it hard to just listen.
