Perfect Way – Scritti Politti

Perfect Way – Scritti Politti

If you appreciate great production values and relentless hooks in a synthpop package, spin this record. “Perfect Way” is the big American hit.

We haven’t counted how many times they say “Whirly Girl” in the song. But it’s a lot. A whole lot. The song was originally about a “Worldly Girl” but adding that “d” to the mix made the chorus too chunky and difficult to song. So they abbreviated it … Read entire article »
