Everybody needs a bosom for a pillow

I was listening to one of my many CD mixes on the way to work today when this song came on. I was reminded of why I downloaded this song in the first place. Not long after my daughter Quinn was born, my wife Jo and I were in the condo watching TV. Jo was holding Quinn, and she had fallen asleep on Jo’s chest. Jo got my attention and just pointed at Quinn and said, “Everybody needs a bosom for a pillow”. I had forgotten about the song up to that point, so I downloaded it. This song also reminds me of working at the Smith bookstore with Matt in the late 90’s, as that’s when it was popular. Ah, nostalgia. The song, by the way, is Brimful of Asha by Cornershop.

Actually, what’s kind of interesting about this song is that there’s an original version, released in 1997, and then the Fatboy Slim remix, released in 1998. That funk soul brother sped that shit up.

Here’s the original version:

And here’s the Fatboy Slim remix version:
