Mark Hollis never cared for or listened to pop music. He listened to classical music and Miles Davis, his favorites being Porgy and Bess and Sketches of Spain. What is your favorite Miles Davis album? In another thead I said that Happiness is Easy was the weakest song on The Colour of Spring. I listened to it again and take it back. It's a great song but I still find the children singing annoying. I spoke with Keith Aspden several times shortly after The Spirit of Eden came out. He told me what several of the sound effects were. The only one I remember is one of the band members was stirring his coffee (or maybe tea, I don't remember) and it was cought on tape. it can be heard at 1:51 of The Rainbow. Talk Talk was my favorite band of the twentieth century. Who was your favorite band of the twentieth century? If it was The Beatles, who was your second favorite?
