mother of christ this song is great, in all seriousness like a top 10 MBV track for me.

I had previously heard it on shitty mp3 rips at 128, but last year I was in this enormous, disgusting chain electronics store in the country called JB Hi-Fi and they had one of the original copies from Kevin's basement. I listened to it for the first time a couple of months ago and my appreciation for these songs has just increased astronomically, the Strawberry Wine tracks in particular. it's a shame so many people forget about this stuff.

Fer sure. My fav is Never Say Goodbye.  The boy/girl vocals (alternating)chasing each other is just brilliant.  Wish they had done more of that(thought I may have detected some of that on 'who sees you' but very inebriated last listen).

tbh i think the whole compilation is pretty sweet. the only track im not that into is "you're safe in your sleep"
