Song of the Day

The Go-Betweens go country and western - with outrageously catchy consequences.

As Grant explained in the sleeve notes of The Go-Betweens 1978-90:

"I've always liked country music. This is a typical mix of pathos and sentimentality in the tradition of George Jones and Tammy Wynette. It comes close to pastiche but The Go-Betweens seldom genre-hop so this is what it is."
