A song a day: Everything but the girl - Missing
I had my iPod on shuffle today and this song came on jolting me out of my casual listenng malaise. Surely one of the greatest lines ever written about losing a lover, the chorus gets me every time - 'I miss you like the deserts miss the rain.' It also marked one of the most unlikely transformations in history with EBTG going from fey folky pop to doyens of dance music. As someone smarter than me once pointed out, like any great dance single dealing with loss, there's only so much room for messy emotions on the dance floor. Now get out of my way while I dance away the pain.
