Zero 7 - Crosses

I still love this track, and can't stop playing it. For ages I've thought that the ending feels very much like a Fleetwood Mac track, and after some searching with Google it seems I'm not the only person to think that.

I found a show review of Zero 7 with Jose Gonzalez and Sia (Webster Hall, New York City) (I've now decided I want to watch them sometime, along with several other people I will get around to watching someday, like Beth Orton):

I was surprised to hear the first tenderizing notes of "Crosses" emerge without the support of the headliners, who reworked the song on The Garden, but the tune reappeared in Zero 7's set, where it truly belonged (with a regretfully shortened version of the band's Fleetwood Mac-ian ending. Think "The Chain").

And I found another reference on another site:

Similarly, new recruit, Swedish singer-songwriter Jose Gonzalez, mixes the retro influences, his folky-musing adding a hippy spirituality to "Futures" and "Today", yet defiant strength to the soft, Fleetwood Mac rock of his own "Crosses".

I also now know what they look like. I don't know why, but I always though Sia would be a brunette (and clearly I'm wrong).

I still blame(/thank) Chloe for getting me into them. I'll have to meet up with her again sometime, I haven't seen her since around April.
