Driving back home last night, after listening to an interesting programme about the decline (and rise) of parks [listen again to The Age of the Park] I found a tape to listen to in the glove box. It turned out to be a compilation tape I had put together back in 1997/98 – an assorted mix of pop tunes, and silly soundtracks from kids tv. Being a compilation, some of these tracks, particularly 30 second snippets of music, are on the tape several times….

So how come, having not heard this tape for years, I get to predict so often what correctly comes after what track. I mean, how would I guess or remember that what follows The Cardigans Love Fool is the theme to Ulysses 31?
