Stronger Than Jesus

This is devastatingly catchy…

Have a good weekend folks…

PS I have been a fan of Nina Persson and The Cardigans since ’bout ’96. I have a long standing weakness for bands fronted by fit birds. Who doesn’t? But I really do have a weakness. And I mean back to Debbie and the boys… Love might be stronger than Jesus but Gawd alone knows why Nina chose that dress… It is J Arthur Rank if not actually Barclay’s Bank.

PPS For my sins I also like Kylie, Belinda, St Etienne and Madonna before she went raving mad.

PPPS I am not gay.

PPPPS Really I am not. Really.

    PPPPPS I forgot to make a comment about the line in the above song about the “Rifle Range” which I think is a direct ref to the Blondie song of the same name.

    I ought to be shot for shut geekery.

    I am still though, not gay.

    Question though… Why are the Scandies the only buggers outside the Anglosphere who fundamentally get popular music?

    It’s a worry though, isn’t it? I’ve a mate who went to see Kylie live last year. I haven’t been entirely sure about him since. I mean, how much of her arse can you actually see from three hundred yards away in an arena? It’s not like it’s all that big in the first place.

    The Et are geeky enough to be safe though, I reckon. And I’m not just saying that because they’re the only one out of those four I like myself. Mmmmm, Sarah, you silky-voiced siren you…

    PS Don’t you hate it when YouTube just stares at you with that little swirly thing going round and round and round and round?

    PPS Finally worked. Good tune. But it gave me time to muse on how I rather share your weakness. I’ve a soft spot for Brazilian Bossa/Samba singers at the moment: Bebel Gilberto, Sabrina Malhieros, Cibelle, Ceu. I don’t speak a word of Portuguese, so I haven’t the faintest idea what they’re singing. But in my head it’s dirty as hell. There’s something about that accent.
