I hate most of the music my daughter likes but this song is "pretty rad" as she says. I'm not sure how uncool they are so forgive me if I've committed some huge faux pas but I really like this song...

This album just turned 37 years old. It's better.

No, I'll stick with song structure and melody, thank you very much.

Most people called Brad are insufferable pricks I've found.

I'm struggling to think of a decent Brad right now, so you might be onto something.

They are about as cool as Coldplay. Maybe less so. Isn't this Sting's son's band?
It's not. You'd recognize Sting's son instantly. The apple didn't fall far from the tree.

The last great Fall single. One of the things I love about it is that in construction it's not far removed from what MES was doing in 1978. As Peel said, always different, always the same.

It was the B- side to to Elton Rifles so maybe a stretch to have on album as well.
I agree it was good enough to go on the album and they had plenty of other b- sides laying about.
