    Originally written by a Russian, it has been covered by at least 15 artists in several countries, mainly during the 1960's and 70's
    Since then I've had 12 versions of it playing back to back on my phone. Yes a geeky obsession, and hopefully one I'll grow out of in the next few days.
    This has given me the impetus to put them together in a list. It's a great track:
    That's your drive home music? How haven't you chosen to go 100mph off a cliff yet?

    Oh I've already chosen my drive-off-a-cliff track, should my life turn so bad that such a course of action becomes necessary. It is "Love's Theme" by Barry White:



    Selected so as to greatly increase the liklihood of a successful suicide attempt

    Anything by Leonard Cohen would do the trick.

    Or Suicide Is Painless if you're feeling a bit ironic.
