Unbelievable (3:40)

From Peppermint Radio

I haven’t met anyone who doesn’t know this song, and for me it perfectly sums up the sound of the early nineties before the Brit Pop era began. I remember it always being played at the school discos and I have a very embarrassing photo of me on a school trip looking remarkably like the lead singer in EMF’s music video, with a backwards cap on (I could be a bit of a tom boy at times back then). The song allowed anyone who heard it to feel like they had a whole load of attitude and cool, I think everybody wishes they had written it. Like The Shamen track I really enjoyed covering this as I basically had free reign to do whatever I wanted on the rap sections. It’s not until I break it down and look closely at something that I can really see the beauty sometimes, and these lyrics are no exception. Wonderful and deeply thoughtful words that have taken on new meaning to me now, twenty years after the song was released.
