It must be tough to make something as perfect as this. It’s such a nailed on classic song, just absolutely bullet-proof, but where do you go from there? No point asking The La’s, as they never did anything else. It’s as though they distilled an entire career into one song and called it a day. I know, drugs and fights and so on, and there was the entire career of Cast to follow, but all those years don’t hold a candle to this.
The album was pretty good too, with Timeless Melody and what have you, but this is really the only thing you need to know from them, a perfect slice of Scouser pop, a hymn for every guy who has been in love but didn’t have the words or the guts to tell her, and had to watch her walk by, never knowing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CZXLLMbJdZ4
