The 2010-50 - No.12: We fell in love but love is blind, and lovers take what lovers find

"Virgin Mary" - Salem Al Fakir.

One of the strongest, and most popular, songs on "Ignore This" - many thought it should have been a single.

A high-energy, pulsating song driven by a strong, 80s-style keyboard riff, sounding like a speeded-up "This Is Who I Am", with Salem's very distinctive voice delivering some very personal lyrics.

Live-version from Love Stockholm, June 2010: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=52PDOqdkuDU - with Salem in typically energetic form! This song was a particular live favourite during Salem's long summer tour of Sweden.
