Save It For Later – The Beat
First one in an occasional series of some of my absolute favourite songs.
Lots of things about this song: the lovely melancholy chords; the line “I don’t know how I’m meant to act in front of you lot, Sometimes I don’t try”; the innuendo throughout the song from the title down; Dave Wakeling and Ranking Roger’s vocals; the beautiful strings; the saxaphone.
It sounds like being fifteen all over again. It sounds like first loves and lost loves. It sounds like the snow falling and the sky falling in.
I love it.
PS: It’s “The Beat”, never “The English Beat”……
