The Cardigans - Sabbath Bloody Sabbath (1995)
I remember we were dropped off at Gatwick and after checking in we hit the pub for a couple of pre-flight pints. On board we had a few more and then landed on the Greek Isle of Rhodes. Faliraki didn't know what was going to hit it. By the time we got to our hotel it was early evening and I decided that we needed a few supplies from the shop on site. When we got there they had litre bottles of Becks !!! So we got a bunch for the fridge and opened one each as we unpacked. I'm not sure which of us young old farts suggested it but we had a nap to get ourselves in prime shape to hit the town.
|Are we all wearing our own jeans guys ??|
As for this song, I had recently bought The Cardigan's album 'Life' after having heard 'Rise And Shine' and put it on a C90 with Elastica's debut album on the other side if I remember rightly to listen on my Walkman at the poolside. When this track came on, I recognised some of the lyrics, but as I'm a listen-to-albums-on-random person (see here for when this can go wrong) I didn't realise why. This was way before Ozzy's re-invention as a reality TV god and if it wasn't for the title I would never have put 2 & 2 together. They did it again on their follow up album 'First Band On The Moon' when they excellently covered 'Iron Man'
NERD ALERT! - Apparently, Lovefool is one of Beyoncé's favourite songs.
