Harry,

I did think about What I Like Most About You Is Your Girlfriend. I absolutely love the single (and the video). Just could not decide what to leave out - maybe it should be a Top Eleven!

Has anyone on here been following Tim's Twitter parties? His website has archived tweets from past shows. Terry and Horace will be tweeting about The Specials first LP on 17 May at 7pm.

I know it is not everyone's favourite day, for good reason. But it would appear there are some nice releases lined up.
