"The next time you hear of me, it'll be in a newspaper story about my contribution to the peace process." Or words to that effect. As parting shots at the end of a relationship go, I thought that was pretty classy. I loved M's competitiveness and fuck-you determination. Lots of James songs remind me of her, but She's a Star does especially, because she used to sing it, about herself.
I've whinged before about James and/or their record label gouging money from their fans by issuing multiple versions of each single. I think this may have been the first time they did it, and I was suckered into buying all three: one with live tracks; one with unreleased songs/'b-sides'; one with remixes. Fool, money, parted.
Still waiting for that newspaper story.
