An underrated song of an incredible underrated band that became a hit througout the years, not only because it featured Indie-pop’s Diva Amelia Fletcher (Heavenly/The Pooh Sticks) or to stand for the longest name on pop history. It gained its importance for its chorus, its guitar and that question we all asked ourselves when we were teenagers desperately in love with the wrong person, ‘why do you have to go out with him when you could go out with me?’.
Millions of song, for years before and years after that have tried to ask and answer that simple question and no one did it best than asking it plain and simple. The way no one of us wil ever dare to ask. Simply Brilliant.
