My Lucky Number’s Three

I haven’t got a lucky number. Lene Lovich’s 1978 hit Lucky Number straddles a fine line between quirky pop genius and irritation, falling just the right side. So many hooks in one song- the new wave intro and verses, the ‘ah-oh-ah-oh’ vocal bridge, the African hi-life guitar part just after that. It always sounds a bit what would happen if Talking Heads attempted writing a genuine pop song.
