Young & Lost Club YALC0011: 11th December 2006
1. Three’s A Crowd
“Two is company, but three’s a crowd, I thought there were no pets allowed”
“They threw their watches into the lake, they had no need for time, and as the moon shone down on them, it showed the weathered marks of life”
‘Three’s A Crowd’ is a furious injection of Indie-Rock but to say it rips off ‘French Disko’ by Stereolab is an understatement of epic proportions. Luckily, as with Fear Of Flying’s last single (It concerned a love affair between two bus drivers), the lyrics are spectacular and entirely their own. The words are about a man’s paranoid thoughts of murder. The twist is that his thoughts are directed at his girlfriend’s cat, because she loves him more. ‘Forget-Me-Nots’ is the liberating story about the inhabitants of a retirement home throwing off the shackles of oppression and escaping in a ‘One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest’ style.
