... I will always like Golden Brown. Even young and naive and far less proficient in Englis, I suspected it had a lot to do with funny sntuff you sniff thru your nose. Cool video imho.
A far darker number is La Folie, sung in Fwench. This number is the result of Jean-Jacques Burnel's insistence on producing a French sung hit. It didn't tick in the UK, where it reached #47, or elsewhere. It did with me, but then, well, I was born and raised practically on the fault line between the latin and germanic cultures, in an ancient Flemish town a stone's throw away from Wallonia, and French is actually my second language, more in fact so than English. I think you really got to have your brain wired partly in French to enjoy a song like La Folie. I will post it anyway because of the fond memories. I also think this really is an essential Strangler's song.
Oh f*ck. "Embedding disabled by request". Wasn't so last week. Then some lighter stuff: Always the sun.
It seems to me that when Hugh Cornwell left in 1990, The Stranglers stopped producing hits.
