The Beautiful South
Released: 28th June 1999.
OK, I'll come clean. I've never really liked the Beautiful South, but surprisingly I quite like this song. Paul Heaton takes the lead all the way through, with brilliant support from the backing singers. The piano in the background gives this energetic, upbeat song a great impact. Hopefully this will be a big hit for the band.
The Beautiful South continue the seemingly randomly chosen releases from "Quench" with a little gem. Ultimately melancholy, the song alternates very effectively between down beat verses and a nicely sarcastic up beat chorus. Despite all this it is unlikely to distinguish itself as a single.
