2010-10-18 The Cure

Greatest Hits Recently I heard some The Cure tracks in a nearby bar, that were slightly different from how I remembered them. The waiter wasn’t too helpful, misunderstanding my question twice until I was confused myself. Back at the table I used Shazam to identify the tracks. This worked much better. :) It turns out that these were acoustic versions of the songs I knew, and they were on the album The Greatest Hits.

Great, I thought! I looked at my favorite local online CD shop and saw that the album cost over CHF 40.– (with the dollar and the Swiss franc being about 1:1), whereas it cost USD 17 on iTunes. I bought it on iTunes!

But when I started listening, I realized that I wanted the limited edition with bonus disc. Damn you! Now I am unhappy and wasted USD 17. :(

Das erinnert mich daran, dass ich mir mal ein paar Beatles CDs ausleihen muss…
