One of the best records in my collection is the Nettwerk Sound Sampler Volume Two. For a long time I was one of the few people I knew who owned the music on it. Today you can find all the tracks on YouTube. While I’m no longer so special it’s good you can all hear the Dog House Mix of Skinny Puppy’s Addiction. Great strings and a wild vocal performance get paired with a clear Roland TR-808 taking what could never be a dance track exactly to the dancefloor. This is one of my favorite pieces of music for many reasons. Desperate, deranged, talking in my sleep again.
“best ever (and.. 808 ridden!) rendition of the track by Skinny Puppy released in 1988 on the second Nettwerk sampler “A Food for Thought”" – states1024

One of the greatest songs about love and addiction.
“Well, I sure thought I had her. Lord, I know she had me. What I thought was heaven is just falling debris. Well, I may not be crazy but I got one hell of a start. Somebody pick up my pieces. I think I’m fallin’ apart.. and the fall to the bottom could tear you apart. And they’ll be pickin’ up pieces of you and your heart.” – Willie Nelson
