Serious Drinking - Love on the Terraces
I was totally bowled over by this song the first time I heard it a few years ago. It's one of those songs that loses none of the its momentum or appeal after a trillion and five re-listens.
It's a blistering explosion of blue-eyed soul ska punk from 1982. The lyrics launch you back to your late teen years and the concerns that seemed so massive then. Oh, and they were! This song proves that time can't deflate such things! They're bigger than memory. Inconceivably huge, like some planet so far off it hasn't yet been discovered.
For real. They're there. You've just stopped paying attention. Until...smack. Yes. This song's a smack. Utter, utter smack.
Go do some Serious Drinking of your own.
