    His lips would put some women’s to shame! 😛

    This is a great Echo and the Bunnymen song:


    I think the musical interlude in the middle is particularly memorable. 🙂


    DjPaulT Reply:

    That is a great track Music_fan 🙂


  6. Robert Says:

    Keeping requests where they’re most appropriate – wonder if there’s any chance of tracking down the US 12″ maxi for the Bunnymen’s “Lips Like Sugar”? 🙂 The François Kevorkian mix on there is one of the great examples of the 80s extended remix! Thanks as always!
