"Midnight ronkers
City slickers
Gunmen and maniacs
All will feature on the freakshow
And I can't do nothing 'bout that, no
But if you hurt what's mine
I'll sure as hell retaliate

You can free the world you can free my mind
Just as long as my baby's safe from harm tonight"

If the "Safe From Harm" track is the ying in the Massive Attack universe, than their "Protection" track must be the yang.

"I stand in front of you | I'll take the force of the blow | Protection"

Massive Attack is very good for breaking in speakers, Murf.

At the tender age of three
I was hooked to a machine
Just to keep my mouth from spouting junk
Must have took me for a fool
'Cause they chucked me out of school
'Cause the teacher knew I had the funk

Artemis, I purchased Thomas Dolby's albums "The Golden Age of Wireless" and "The Flat Earth" in 1984. My favorite song on The Flat Earth is "Hyperactive!," which Dolby originally wrote for Michael Jackson. Apparently Jackson wasn't interested, so Dolby recorded it himself. I'm glad he did.


Here are a couple more of my favorites that are on the album, The Flat Earth:





Note: not sure if the versions I posted here of Hyperactive! and I Scare Myself are the exact same versions that are on the album, The Flat Earth.

Esteban, Thomas Dolby also produced the "Jordan: The Comeback" album of Prefab Sprout (1990). I recall visiting a music shop to get my copy immediately after release.

If not familiar with that PS album but appreciating Dolby's work, give it a listen (here). Exquisite sophisti-pop.

Your first video says "Video unavailable - This video is not available," so that means we here in the states cannot see it. Must be a copyright issue.

We can look it up, though.

Probably region restrictions. Here you go: the cool 8-minute version.
