THE HOLLOWAYS – Happiness & Penniless (CD Single)

Happiness & Penniless CoverSensible SENSIBLE002CD: 10th April 2006
1. Happiness & Penniless
"And now he's unemployed, he lives on milk and bread, his graduates account is so far in the red"
2. What's The Difference?
"What's the difference between you and me, your faults and your flaws, you fail to see"

The lyrics to 'Happiness & Penniless' are brilliant.  They're nothing earth shatteringly profound, they just list the various pains of life, when you're strapped for cash.  The words just come thick and fast and demand you to sing along.  The sound is the usual Clash thing but you'll be humming the tune for ages.

'What's The Difference?' has a bouncy Reggae-Rock sound with an almost Billy Bragg like vocal.  It has a great guitar solo in the middle that reminded me of the one from 'Let It Be'.  I also love when he sings "Sympathy-e-e".  This could have easily been a double A-Side.  I'd been wondering if they had any other tunes to match the amazing 'Generator'.  Thankfully they do.
