This s the first thing that came up on YouTube for classic electro mix. I've not listened to it but I guaruntee it's a thousand times better than the autechre.
No option with you and none without you,
life is impossible
Not being together,
and not being apart without resolution or reason
Not in dreams or in hopes while being happy was our wish
You are not guilty and neither am I,
and now you are without me and me without you
A moment will come and all will turn into ashes
When our souls will rest
And when we will find comfort in another love
That will be the day that we will deteriorate
Around us an emptiness will cover us without limits
And all of a sudden all will look meaningless,
and that's the day when we will deteriorate
One aspect you might be missing is that BoxedJoy likes Dido because it's so awful and that awfulness, that drab, dreary, second rate quality is what life in Britain feels like.
That Turkish passion stuff is a whole other kettle of fish, wailing and gnashing of teeth. Very different from British people quietly and apologetically commiting suicide in a damp room.
