Friday Music


OK, the lead singer died 2 weeks ago and I am late on this one, but this track reminds me of my callow youth.

I remember this track coming out when I was at VIth form and moving along that uncertain path from childhood to adulthood. I was profoundly shy and awkward. A few friends persuaded me to join them and try and do this track in the style of the Flying Pickets for a VIth form concert.

And I did: complete with a white bathing cap so I could mimic the tall bald one. It was the first time I had ever appeared on a stage. Happy days. Returning to this track after 29 years, I realise just how fine it was and how the sparseness of the video works with the song.
