I'm assuming track 4 is a Bee Gees cover.

Probably some tribute to Robin Gibb who had the lead vocals on that song.

''I started a joke'' is a lost masterpiece.

Yaaay! some real news at last.

"I started a joke" - I'm not familiar with that one but nice idea to cover a Bee Gees track ... so the question is : do I hear the Bee Gees original or wait for the PSB version first ... ?

"Way through the woods" ... for some reason, I'm getting a feeling this will be an instrumental or dub in the vein of "The samurai in autumn" .... just a hunch.

Winner album version? Perhaps this is the non-Olympic version.

'I started a joke' - the Bee Gee's original - is beautiful and would suit PSB vefry well. Plenty of 'oo's and 'aaah's in the backing vocal. Can't wait.

I think it roughly translates as 'a certain quality'.
