So I've never turned on my iPod's shuffle function before -- swear to god -- but when I did it today this is the first thing that came up.
From 1993, and their 30th Anniversary Collection, please enjoy The Hollies and "The Woman I Love."
This is pretty much the last memorable record they made with something resembling their classic lineup, and if truth be told I resisted it when it first came out -- the lyric is a little sniggering, I think, and the production is awfully late 80s, in the Richard Marx sense. Nonetheless, it's got a chorus to die for and the group harmonies are as stellar as ever, so the damn thing gets to me against my better judgement; in fact, by the time the last "me-yeah-e-yeah" thing happens on the fadeout, I'm pretty much a goner.
Hey, I'm a Hollies fan down to my DNA, what can I tell you?
BTW, it's written by 80s New Wave teen idol Nik Kershaw, who was briefly a comer.
