I'm not a fan of Chris De Burgh, but I do like the song "High on Emotion", which is featured on this album. I picked it up for 10p as it was without its proper case. A previous owner had moved it into a "CD Single" case. along with the booklet. This, of course isn't a problem for someone as pikey as me. The CDs tend to get ripped and then never played again

I've always liked "High On Emotion" ever since I first heard it on one of those infomercial things (or whatever us brits call them) that sell you 15,000 CDs for the low low price of £99.99.

It was one of those songs that stuck in my head after my trip to Austria, outside one of the stations, it was being played on a radio that some market stall seller was listening to. It's one of those moments when you're in a foreign country and you hear a song you know. A bit like that time I danced around in my underpants to "shadow On The Wall" by Mike Oldfield. But we won't go into that.
