Have you ever got totally addicted to one track?

In my dim and distant past there's been XTC's 'Making Plans For Nigel', Tears For Fears 'Shout' and Gary Numan/Dramatis' 'Love Needs No Disguise' amongst others.

Now let me introduce you to 'Message' by an obscure band called Syntax.

Haunting, melancholy and strangely beautiful, there's something mysteriously indefinable about this track.

The video was probably made for about 50p, but I can particularly empathise with the last thirty seconds or so, where the guy is constantly fending off 'people', known or unknown.

I guess we all feel like that sometimes. Or is it just me?
