This doesn't float my boat at all. I'm sorry, but will someone please enlighten me as to what the attraction to the Dexys is? Ok, I'll admit the chorus is quite catchy, but that's about the only praise I can muster for Manhood.
This has all the musical flair of the songs that get laughed off Song for Britain. It's bad karaoke to my ears, almost like someone horribly intoxicated is trying to cover something by the Beautiful South. Maybe if the vocals weren't so disproportionately laid over the nifty mellow ska-like tunes then it wouldn't be so bad.
This is from the new best of album, which personally I won't be going anywhere near. Maybe like red wine you need to be of a certain age to enjoy the Dexys, but I can't stand red wine.
