The Soundtrack Of Our Lives : 21st Century Rip Off

...the fourth best track from their almighty ‘Behind The Music’ album...

Soundtrack return with the fourth best track from their almighty ‘Behind The Music’ album.

Even Uncle Noel Gallagher loves them. Five years ago, of course, such an honour would have ensured Ebbot enough psychedelic cassocks to last him ‘til Doomsday. Now it just means swapping small talk with Alan White on a never-ending North American Tour supporting Oasis. As Ebbot moans herein: "Everyone’s been cheated by everyone..."
