Surprised by how many folk like this one. Though not as bad as the last two covers reviewed. Scandinavia, it has it’s moments. Boz went over the top to a fault with this one, the Duane Eddy twang to a kind of dark Lee Hazlewood marching dirge, but those awful synth strings and choir? Nah.
I don’t know what the point of this song is, some good lines, and some of the singing is really nice, like at the lyrics ... ‘but you came along..’ and ‘ I kiss the soil...’
There are some Morrissey songs that didn’t need to be written, this is one of them.
