Actually, you know what? I've never even had to before now. I've never encountered anyone else who even gives a flying fig who Mike Oldfield is. Yet here, among a load of Transformers fans, I also find a shared interest in one of my favourite musicians. So many of the things that thrill me are shared here. The Hub truly is a wondrous place filled with magical people. You all rock!
I...I...don't think his stuff is very good. Forgive meeeee.
I should like Tubular Bells due to the heavy influence of electronic music and the Radiophonic Workshop on me but it just leaves me cold. It actually feels very cold, distant and alienating to me. I want to put on a warm jumper whenever I hear snatches of it.
There was once a beep-beep rave version though which was alright. I suspect it was not officially endorsed.
Not enough techno mad BEEP BEEP BEEPS on this. Tubular Bells rave should have some guy shouting "BEAT BEAT BEAT TUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUBE!" or something over it. Where is my crap fake piano that I demand in rave remixes? There's not even a woman doing crap screaming over it.
