@theaceface, can’t believe I put 82, I meant to put 80, remember it cos I was 18 in July 1980. Can only put it down to the onset of old age…….and too many drugs in my youth

Stunning new wave classic, the lyrics mean so much to be and the tune is simple melodic pleasure. Love the video which cost 15 Bob to make.

I had to look up this song after hearing it on The Football League Show, after The World’s Greatest Football Team Sheffield Wednesday clinched promotion to The Championship five days ago!! 🙂

The Undertones were in the zone!!! I had the
pleasure of meeting some of them backstage
after a performance of their’s at the Keystone
club in Berkeley,California,USA in 1980.

Looking for songs about Wednesday … This was a nice surprise! I had never heard this song before…or the artists, (the name sounds vaguely familiar..) but I really enjoyed it! And I was glad to see actual footage of the song being performed! I just HAD to add this to my newest Playlist “Days of the Week” on my YouTube Channel, MikesOrganicVideos… TODAY, Wednesday, April 25th, 2012

I have to defend the “music was better back then…” people. I agree that there is crap in all generations of music, but the ratio of mainstream crap to mainstream gold is particularly bad these days.

Well said, couldnt agree more. I would like to add but will just be reiterating what you said, but what the…. There was LOTS of rubbish then and even in the fantastic 60’s, especially at the start of that decade -lots of silly 4 chord trick novelty songs that all sounded the same. Most of the chart stuff is crap now but the indie market is great and also every now and then a great song tops the chart like:- ‘Now your just somebody that I used to know’…

I’m sorry but I have to speak out against the general theme of these comments. No, music wasnt better in your day, stop romanticising your youth there was crap then, there is crap now and there will be crap 20 years from now. That being said there is some amazing music from all generations, if you say there isnt then your clearly not looking hard enough, great bands are always waiting to be discovered what ever decade you’re looking at.

when we listened to music in the 1960s and 70s up to about the mid 80s, we had melodies and arrangements – and catchy songs that were 2 1/2 to max 4 mins long. What happened to them?
