And now the 90s #7 – 1996


I’ve long been something of a sucker for a good song or album title. And Underworld’s 1996 offering of ‘Second toughest in the infants’ takes some beating in my book. As album titles go, it’s up there in the proverbial top ten (if there was such a thing – hmmmm…thinks!)

‘Pearl’s Girl’ is the track of choice here and for very good reason. When the album came out, my middle daughter Gracey was five and, although the song’s repeated strapline is actually ‘…crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy…’, it sounded more like (and still does) ‘…gracey, gracey, gracey, gracey…’ No brainer really.

In March next year I have the chance to find out first hand what those words sound like live, as I have tickets to see the band at the Brighton leg of their ‘Dubnobasswithmyheadman’ (another superb album title) tour. Watch this space for a review of that.
