    Did you like Meg Myers version? It was an FM radio hit for a while in 2019. I think it is at least good as the Placebo version. Great synth sounds and her voice conveys a lot of emotion. Recommended.

    This seemed too short – probably the sign of a very good, engrossing interview. Well done!
