Protection

For some odd reason, I couldn't sleep last night, so I spent some time during the wee hours surfing the 'Net for some vintage porn music videos. I sorta stumbled on the video for "Protection" by Massive Attack with Tracey Thorn (from Everything But the Girl) on vocals. Tracey Thorn has such an underrated voice and I don't think that U.S. radio stations ever did enough to promote her or EBTG.

Massive Attack is one of my all time favorite bands, and the pairing of Tracey Thorn on this song is a match made in music heaven. Listening to this song takes me back to the 90's....such a crazy time in my life...but the "good" kind of crazy (college, living on my own, tragic hair styles, and shaking my thang at the all night raves).

Last year my car got broken into (well, I sorta helped the thief out) and they took all of my Massive Attack & EBTG cds...those are the cds that I really miss the most....le sigh.

Here's the video for Protection:

I've got every song by EBTG. You want a selection or do you want them ALL?

Shirl: Yes, I actually have that one...and I loves it!

BD: It's goes perfectly with the song...and thanks for the offer [I accept].

Jim: You're such a generous man...I think another blogger is sending me all of their hits, so that should fill the void...THANKS for offering just the same!
