Night Boat to Cairo
One Step Beyond
For the wings of a dove!
but mainly One Step Beyond
i can't believe you'd say that.
Return Of The Los Palmas 7
Johnny The Horse
Town With No Name
etc. etc. etc. etc. etc.?
I actually think Suggs' lyrical effort on House of Fun is worth mentioning. One of the most spectacular successions of euphemisms in popular music!
ALL OF THEM.
"while Thompson's sharp, often obtuse lyricism formulated not least in this song about a schoolkid losing his virginity to a prostitute and contracting VD."
i thought songs like that would be your typa shit Tristan!
virginity, venereal diseases or for that matter lyricism.
i like Madness quite a lot, and Sweeping The Nation for writing that blog. The bit where Kix jumps onto the table in the video to '...Los Palmas 7' still makes me chuckle inside.
the piano solo at the end of Shut Up. And the stuttering self-sampling bit in I'll Compete.
for all of 'Michael Caine'.
i actually like 'Sorry'! i was worried it would be a bit awkward and cringeworthy and shi'.
DA DA DA DAAAAAAAA
how incredible It Must Be Love is
but i agree!
but they didn't write it
however, it is one of cover versions that I can never quite decide whether it is better than the original or not
the original is mega so maybe not quite
who is it by?
i had no idea!
you should hear the mandolin's on the original
Labi Siffre's original just shades the Madness version
if I were on soulseek you could delve into my hard drive and not have to take my word for it
