Following on from Spike's Suzanne post the other day, today we feature a third - and fourth! - different song with the self-same title. London-based Hut signings and shoegaze pioneers Moose delivered their own Suzanne in 1991, as the opening track on the Cool Breeze EP. Jolly good it is too.
Moose - Suzanne mp3 (available for 7 days)
Mildly Interesting Moose Fact: Moose's bass player, Lincoln Fong, had what I believe to be the greatest name in popular music history. (unless anyone knows better?)
Mildly Interesting Moose Fact #2: The cover of the band's third EP, Reprise, featured a picture of the three Brady Bunch girls - Marcia, Jan and Cindy. Cindy Brady was played by Susan Olsen (right and right), whose first name sounds a bit like Suzanne. A mere coincidence? I think not!
Susannah is another name that sounds a bit like Suzanne; it was also the title of a cheesy 1984 Europop smash by Dutch group The Art Company. I bet you won't have heard this one for a while, eh, readers? (what do you mean no, thank god?)
The Art Company - Susannah mp3 (available for 7 days)
Mildly Interesting Pop Fact: 'The Art Company' was merely the English name for the group: they were actually called VOF de Kunst. And what was the title of the original Dutch-language version of Susannah? Why, Suzanne of course!
VOF de Kunst - Suzanne
