Great forgotten songs of the 1990s - #14



"Bob Dylan didn't have this to sing about..."

One magazine review said at the time, wrongly, that the song "lacked a certain something". The Americans didn't think so - they took it to #1. Meanwhile, the UK record buying public had two separate releases to show their appreciation - and it stalled at #31 both times. Cuh.

This is all fair enough, if you ask me. Even now, it's still quite hard to believe that it's perhaps as an indirect consequence of this, Chumbawamba had an album in the US top five. And maybe, if I close my eyes and wish especially hard, in an alternate universe Carter USM make it to the summit of the Billboard chart with Do Re Me (So Far So Good).

Heh, from now on I'm going to deliberately choose songs from the 1990s which will make VS spontaneously combust.

Shouldn't be too difficult, Matt.
