Sorry, I know it's so not the time of year to quote this now, but: I love to listen to that song in the car around Christmas. It always gets me in a very particular mood.

Re: 30 songs, a questionnaire

@ Germansherlockfan
Wow!.Kristallnaach by BAP, what a brillant choice!

@ eurydike
I don't think that Faithless split. They already had longer breaks before.

Re: 30 songs, a questionnaire

@gently69: I had to think about this category quite a bit, I wanted to choose a really meaningful song and then suddenly Kristallnaach came to my mind, it's still such a moving and important song.

Re: 30 songs, a questionnaire

It definitely is. Especially because BAP also managed it to show a connection to the presence ... mentioning a dark occasion of the past.

Breaks, yes. But this time they called it the end and they gave final concerts, so...http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/depressed.png


There's still hope, of course, but for now they no longer exist as a band.
