31 May 2012 - Fine Young Cannibals - Ever Fallen In Love

Before they were big hitmakers with "She Drives Me Crazy", Fine Young Cannibals were a fun post-punk band with clear ska influences.  They should have that sound - they formed from the ashes of The English Beat, a fun post-punk band with clear ska influences.

This song is from the soundtrack of the grossly underrated "Something Wild", starring Jeff Daniels, Melanie Griffith who is largely unrecognizable for half the movie, and a young, scene-stealing Ray Liotta.  The tune itself is a cover of the best-known song by The Buzzcocks. FYC does a respectable job popping up a dark and angry song.  Roland Gift's voice is particularly pained-sounding here, which suits Pete Shelley's lyrics quite well.
