>The Singer Not The Song


More from Nouvelle Vague – this time a cover of the Specials’ Friday Night And Saturday Morning. The song’s protagonist talks of being ‘Out with mates and dates and friends’, although you get the impression that he’s lonely, wishing that he had lipstick stains on his shirt when waiting in the taxi queue at the end of the night. That loneliness is reinforced by the haunting, super-8 style vid. I loved the original, which is a bit of an overlooked classic – but I must admit I prefer this version.
