Ba Ba Ba Ba-Ba Ba Ba Ba

Back to my occasional series where I feature a song which have some non-sensical half-lyrics somewhere in them this morning, be they the eponymous Ba Ba Ba’s, or maybe some La La La La’s, perhaps a sprinkling of Do-De-Do-Do’s, or if you’re really lucky some lesser spotted Bum-Titty-Bums,

Until yesterday, I’d never really noticed the use of such vernacular on this song, but, fully masked and latex-gloved up, waiting for the bus back from doing the weekly shop, it came on my iPod, and it caught my ear this time.

But it does beg the question: hands up who wants to hear some Jools Holland this morning? And I totally appreciate that for most of you, that’s going to invoke the same reaction as Rik asking:

But what if I were to tell you that Jools isn’t in Hootenanny mode….?

…and he’s not in Boogie-Woogie mode either..?

That’s better.

Here you go then: the album version of a truly great song by a band that almost prevented The Smiths from forming:

More soon.
