I've always thought this song quite seductive. When Ben Watt almost died in the early 90's and EBTG were later resurrected, they started to create (pop) art on the edge. They have a number of songs that are like a mix of sleek metal and cashmere: Lullaby of Clubland ("I've got no coat... are you on your own?") and Five Fathoms ("I wrap the wheel around me and I go out"). Songs that are marked for me by those key lines, which I associate not with isolation, but with the freedom of a solitary moment. Especially when pushed to the corners of one's comfort zone. Wrong, for me, is summed up by this line: "I wanted everything for a little while / Why shouldn't I / I wanted to know what it was like."
Clearly I am having a London moment. It's the rain and cold and grey following a frustrating week. Do you have any songs like this, that resonate on a key line - one that reveals a certain side of you?
I'd like to occasionally highlight an old song that maybe has not received the attention it merits. I'd share the tracks, but we all know how that goes...
