Nightmare

Must we fling this filth at our children? This 1967 song features a girl who shows off her ring, another girl who then takes umbrage, girl-on-girl violence and a soundtrack to match, a chorus which goes ‘Push her down, get her down’, the death of the other girl and our protagonist fleeing and then (cue thumping drums/jail house doors) her inevitable comeuppance. The Whyte Boots were an imaginary band apparently- which doesn’t take anything away from this great 60s girl group psychodrama.
