Look what A Very Public Sociologist melted into
Thanks. I'd take issue with the requirement to be a connoisseur to know this one. This was a big hit familiar to most Brits (indeed most west Europeans) over 35. Bigger still was Vanessa Paradis' "Joe le taxi" which had a lot of media coverage. By contrast, a band like The Smiths who are constantly name-checked on nostalgia TV never had a top 5 hit single.
I'm over 35 and was only dimly aware of it - and that's probably thanks to Soma FM rather than my then diet of TOTP and the Chart Show.It is always interesting how the now overwrites the yesterday to produce a canon of the past. Who in the early 80s had heard of Don't Stop Believin'?
