Voice Of The Beehive - I Think I Love You (1991)
Thinking back to 1993 I remember what I was doing when the news came in about the siege in Waco finally being over.
I had fancied a girl at a neighbouring branch of the bank I worked in for a long time and had asked her to go on holiday with me thinking it would be the perfect opportunity to show how cool I was and get her to fall in love me. Unbelievably she agreed, I thought I was well in and I was, right up until the moment my mum was driving us to Gatwick for our flight and asked if she was required to collect us a week later. At this point my heart broke, the (I'm not gonna name her) girl said "No its okay, David (not his real name) is going to collect me" He was supposed to be her ex. They had officially split up and I was trying to become her next boyfriend.

Not the best start to a week alone together in Tenerife but I decided to hell with it, I would try and enjoy the sun and beers and worry about girls later. I bought a great book, that contained both Red Dragon & Silence Of The Lambs which I completed that week and listened to most of the 20 C90's I'd brought with me. One of the highlights was the morning stroll to collect an overpriced day old copy of The Sun. This was before t'internet and Sky Sports being available in every small bar. I needed to keep up to date with the footie and that's when I saw the headlines from April 19th.
When the week was over and it was time to leave the hotel at 9am I looked in the fridge and saw I still had 3 bottles of Bud left. Determined not to leave them behind I opened all 3 and proceeded to drink the first one waiting for the lift. No 2 for the lift down and the 3rd for the walk to the waiting bus. Perfect end to a pretty shitty week. Within the year they were married and I had to wait til 2001 before I tracked down my shell, or at least her daughter...
This song brings back some good memories, if only because it was on one of the aforementioned C-90's. Classic trashy pop. I love(d ??) it.... I think.
