I found this on Spotify according to my records, and as I'm not a fan of Spotify I suspect I found it on Låpsley's playlist. The song seems simple, yet magical, and somehow the singers even make the word "gasoline" sound like something special.

And as it is my birthday and I'm a fan of Låpsley (you should check out her stuff anyway), here is a photo of myself with Holly (that's her real name, Låpsley is her middle name) post gig in San Francisco, where I finally reveal that I am actually, The Stig, much to the British road-crews amusement.
