I've never heard the single mix of Rain and now I'm not sure that I want to!
I know Rain is loved round these parts but the public have all but forgotten it. It's Madonna's most underrated single for me. The spoken word middle 8 is heaven.
So funny seeing Sub Sub who's male performers went on to become the dour (but ace) Doves.
And Pressure us (Or was it US?) by Sunscreen was an absolute BOP.
I remember my Beatles-loving dad annoying me about this line in Rain at the time - "Well, I hope she asked permission!"Did she have to give any writing credit for the Here Comes The Sun bit?
Bill Tarrmey did have a pleasant voice if not for my tastes. Always came across as a very nice man too.
I used to find him easy on the eye! There, I've said it!
Regret by New Order is one of those songs that is praised but is so boring and lazy in its rhyming, and ruined as usual by boring Bernard's boring monotonous voice. I wish New Order had a better vocalist as I'd probably listen to them much more. I remember much preferring World (Price of Love), but haven't heard it in years.
