Orange Juice ‘Felicity’

We break up, we break up, we don’t care if school blows up….

I’ve finished work for Easter which makes it a good day. But any day couldn’t be entirely bad for hearing the sheer joy and exuberance of Felicity, my favourite Orange Juice song- from the opening ‘woaaah woah, woaaah woah, woaaah woah!!’, this song sums up the Chic meets The Velvets style, as Edwyn described it. Written by James Kirk, lovely ramshackle, chiming guitars, great all-over-the-shop singing, brilliant break- ‘let’s take it to the bridge now!’.

Apparently all OJ’s albums are about to be re-issued and a box-set is coming too. ‘Happiness, oh-oh-oh happiness, oh-oh-oh, happiness, this is the sound of happiness’.

And don’t their fringes look great?
