I saw this and thought of you (Moose)
It’s Housemartin/Beautiful South-er Paul Heaton’s birthday today. He’s a man who knows his way around a melody. I was listening to The People Who Grinned Themselves To Death last night; as I’ve mentioned before it was the first album I bought that wasn’t a Now! compilation ( I must have been 12 or 13 and used good old Record Tokens). Anyway, aside from the fab lyrics and bouncy playing, it’s a record of wall-to-wall TUNES. What’s your favourite Heaton-penned song?
