Fear of Men (2011)
Speaking to this very website last week the supremely cuddly Fear of Men told me that this tune is one they have now grown out of, and so I assume they dont even perform it live any more. A shame because they do a really neat version here.
The House of Love (1992)
I think this is the version I like best. I know it’s common to say that the original is best but this is just a thing people say because they assume it right and holy. Not always true though. The House of Love were a splendid rock-pop band, and if they were around today there’d be little contemporaries willing to touch them.
The Chills (1984)
Begins totally different to the two versions above. Seems an altogether more perky version before settling down. Okay, listening to this version it’s a photo finish between it and the HoL’s take on it. Still can’t make up my mind though. One thing I can make up my mid on is the song’s endless appeal.
