    These Boots

    Very interesting.... at L.A.'s newest hot spot/hotel called The Standard, there is a rooftop club complete with bar, pool, waterbeds, etc. The DJ's play mostly ultra modern rave type music (stuff I've never heard). After a few drinks, I went up and asked them to play The Fixx. I thought she would laugh me out of there as she looked to be about 19 years old.

    Much to my surprise, she not only agreed, but after looking it up on her computer, she said they have only 2 songs, SB Zero and These Boots. The drinks got the better of me so I requested Zero, which she played and the crowd loved.

    My bad, as after listening to These Boots, I soon realized that it has become one of my top 5 Fixx songs, albeit a cover.

    Interesting that These Boots are on her play list, and that she is such a big fan. There are other well known people who are self professed fans as well, a few to mention would be members of the Eagles, Don Henley, The Tubes, Denise Brown (Nicole Brown Simpson's sister), and especially Criss Angel (Mindfreak magician) and his producers.

    In closing, I can't say enough about These Boots. The haunting, magical riffs by Jamie and Rupert and Adam's work continue to reverberate in my head. What a slick, cool version of a song I thought I'd never like!

    Much Love,

    When I heard the song on the Anthology CD, I burst into laughter.

    That cover was so cleverly done that it kinda ambushed me.

    I'm telling ya........
    You've got to have the "Boots"!!!

    My first impression of These Boots was that I wouldn't want to meet that sinister voice in a dark alley alone.

    I have since changed my opinion... I'd love to meet that sinister voice in a dark alley alone.

    YOU and about a half a million other women....HA! LOL!!
    You pass like the moon in silence
    In the warm flooded air
    Looking back to those lost opportunities
    So often missed or ignored
    A thousand times I start heading for the dawn
    Only to turn around and face this rue once more
    There 's something ahead of you
