Mellow Birds

So, then, Come Around by nineties Kiwis The Mutton Birds. One of the most stupendously brilliant songs of the past decade or two (which meant that, predictably, it failed to make a dent in the UK charts). A perfect piece of guitar pop, and - I know these things are subjective and all, but I think I can say this with confidence - utterly impossible to dislike.

Also, browsing the video's comments section on YouTube, it seems that there's a school of thought to suggest that the girl sitting around looking a bit redundant in the vid is none other than a young Keeley Hawes of Keeley Hawes nude fame. Wouldn't have a clue meself, as it just looks like a generic model type to me, but what do you reckon? Is that her? And is that really David Moyes on lead vocals?

Ahh, thanks for confirming!

You know I love this song! It's the kind of song that is so deceptively simple that you can't help but wonder why no-one's done it before!

And who'd have thought that Keeley Hawes not being nude would come back to haunt us again?

Just logged in to say definitely Keeley Hawes but I see I've been beaten to it. I've got the sort of crush on Keeley that I should have stopped having about 30 years ago.
