We hate it when our music becomes successful

For ages, I’ve been holding close to my ample bosom an excellent song called Strict Machine by Goldfrapp. Throbbing electro beats, ethereal vocals, a lyric that’s just begging to be repurposed for an iPod or electricity commerical. It even makes a passable ringtone. Plus, as it’s barely charted, it’s a secret between me, fellow musical geniuses in the office and others around me.

Potentially not any more. It’s scraped into the top 20, and while that is a good thing does this mean I’m no longer obscurely cool ?

    I think you underestimate how many people own the Black Cherry album. Although the singles didn’t chart highly, it’s been a slow burner for ages.

  • Just wait 'til I become mainstream, baby.

    BWAHAHA! The only "stream" I'm mainlining is a stream of cat pee.

  • No longer obscurely cool? When *were* you obscurely cool? Oh, or that's the clever bit. So obscure I didn't notice!
