How many of you remember this Locomia side project?

[Edit - might be wrong on that]

That was this version, which was always my favourite track on that compilation by far

Some of you may remember this beaut off the excellent Ritmo Fantasia comp which came out on Soundway 3 years ago

A no-brainer for this thread.

Anyway I just stumbled across the original version, complete with a comedy Spanish hiphouse rap, a cult hit in 1990 with a guy more or less repeating Soy Pijo (translated: I am a snob! I am a snob!) which made me chuckle

Could just as easily go in the cover versions thread as both this and Tangled Man on the a side are originally by English folk singer Anne Briggs
