Stats for this track
Written & recorded in 1991-92, this is another bedroom-demo classic from 'The Big Squeak'. After writing fairly weird experimental songs for many years it was my attempt at mastering the art of the pop song. Written about a girl who I went out with quite briefly, the lyrics to the verses are quite historically accurate & poignant to me. The lyrics to the chorus however makes me totally vomit & cringe into a ball when I hear it now. Writing a bittersweet love/split-up song is an incredibly hard thing to do without being corny or sickening, as anyone who has ever tried will know too well. Didn't get it quite right & the chirpy optimism of the chorus makes it feel light & throwaway, which is a pity coz it was heartfelt at the time. One day maybe I'll get it right.
