Song of the Day – “The Perfect Couple” – Paul Heaton

But when that bald guy sang “You Sexy Thing”
Both of our pants just dropped

Just because Heaton wasn’t part of The Housemartins or The Beautiful South at the turn of the millennium didn’t mean he couldn’t still write sunny songs with biting lyrics. This is from Fat Chance, and the song is full of references to other songs and artists.

When that band released “Fool on the Hill”
do you think they meant me or meant you
When the band sang “Didn’t I Blow Your Mind”
we must have sucked as hard as we blew
But when the King sang “Always on My Mind”
It was mine that was always on you

    Such a great song. Shame it never took off. I love it so much. Also the female singer has such a great voice.
