"SPECIAL FORTIFIED DANCE MIXES TO ENHANCE DANCEABILITY"
Is this marketed to the supplement-taking crowd? If so, it should come with promotional Martyn, Ian, and Glenn-shaped vitamins.

Anyhow, this is just one more thing I can't afford. I can hear "I'm Your Money" playing in my head just thinking about placing the pre-order. ;)

Incidentally, that really needs remixes...

We've got the brains. We've got the looks. Let's make lots of money (for the Heaven 17 purchase!). 8-)
