What's In Yir Box? Y

Well this is it the last letter in the series and up until a couple of weeks ago there wouldn't have been anything in the box under Y, Nobody's Diary by Yazoo is in another box but not good enough to warrant entry into this box.

I'm not sure why I didn't buy Maps at the time as I had bought previous singles and eps but I had been oblivious of this release until it was too late, it was still available on cd single but the 7" single was already going for double figures and although I liked it I didn't feel it was worth the inflated price it was going for, so settled for having various versions of the song on mp3. Butt I have always been on the look out for a reasonably priced copy on Vinyl. So when I saw a copy on ebay at an acceptable starting price I put in my bid and waited expecting to be outbid but nobody did and so ten years after it's release I now own a mint copy of Maps.

Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Maps

I have really enjoyed listening to all of the singles for each letter on the Saturday night prior to doing the post over the past six months and have no idea what I will do instead, I will probably have to be more sociable on a Saturday evening now, not having the excuse "I've no time to watch  **** (insert crappy Saturday evening telly show here), I've got to listen to these singles for tomorrow's post".
