I just noticed that in the nearly 15 months Dave’s Strange World has been active, I’ve only posted one Buzzcocks song. Well here’s a long overdue second.
“Ever Fallen In Love (With Someone You Shouldn’t Have)?” is arguably the Buzzcocks best-known song. Not only was it their highest-charting hit in the U.K., but it was later covered by the Fine Young Cannibals and Pete Yorn (whose cover was prominently featured in “Shrek 2”). This is a great power pop song if there ever was one. And the mix of heavy guitars and pop harmonies are evenly matched. It’s thrashy enough for the punks and hooky enough to be a classic pop song that transcends decades.
