People who know me well know what my favorite albums are. If you read this blog last year, I revealed that Velveteen by UK hitmakers (who did next to nothing Stateside) Transvision Vamp is high on that list. At that time, I posted a really REALLY angry song - my favorite song on that album.
But here's the thing that makes that album so perfect. There are no bad songs on there. NONE. They released two other albums - this was their second - and they were all good. This one was borderline perfect.
This song was a hit in the UK and Australia in 1989 and 1990, respectively - and it's a quiet tribute to a lot of pop icons throughout the ages - it's a song full of name drops. Wendy James can deliver quiet and she can deliver loud, and she proves it on this album.
