I had the luck of finding my Murano necklace this Bank Holiday, something I thought I'd lost for nearly half a year. Another delight was coming across a single I hadn't played for about 6 years all the way at the bottom of a box which is my choice for this week. It was probably one of the last CD singles I bought as I was already an owner of the 'suspicious package' looking Archos Jukebox. Really that MP3 player was a hard drive with a green LCD display, but it did wonders for its time and I continued to support the French group for quite some time. Yep it was heavy but I was carrying all of my music around with me, including Monty Python sketches naturally.
If you wanted to start that Jukebox up it would give a gentle whirring noise and vibration in your hand. I still have no idea how they made it so stable to resist jogging when moving about but it did wonders for me. I thought it was strange how I remembered that specifically, maybe we remember the simpler things in life more?
I pondered more on this and recalled how I reminisce on the warmth of vinyl, the sound as the needle touches the groove and then the anticipation. Innovation led to smaller music devices through the years, however it still left a desirable sound to signify the start of the track. Cassette with its click clunk entrance mechanism and that familiar hiss that ran in the background throughout each side. CD's reduced noise levels to a neat push and gave crystal clear sound in comparison to its predecessors. My jukebox sort of bucked the trend on this, but slowly we engineered the decline of our recognisable sounds into silence. Leaving the beginning a listening experience all too easy and unimaginative at a press of a few buttons, with the majority not actually being physical.

Dice - Finley Quaye & William Orbit
It's the simpler things in life, just a passing thought which brings me on nicely to 'Dice'. Simplistic lyrics but beautiful vocals which leave me enchanted, all the way back to the first time I listened to it on the midnight train. The video has a sweet journey and one I've always adored for its moments where I break a smile.
Nothing compares to that rush when you take a chance. You only get one moment to say you love someone before that moment passes by. Enough of the mushy stuff for now, need some rock for next week. Tara for now.
