I took a backseat, a backhander, I took her back to her room
I better get back to the basics for you, oh yeah
You gotta conscience, compassion, you got a way with the word
You gotta heart full of complacency too

    Both the users ams108 & GCUgreyarea below can't distinguish Scritti Politti from generic pop of the 80s and now, which is a shame. Scritti Politti in the 80s were undoubtedly one of the most intelligent pop acts around. The production says this alone, but the lyrics drive the point home.

    The pre-chorus stuns me still to this day. A Perfect Way of laying the chords out.

    Great Pop. Don't understand the Scritti haters. They sound a litle narrow minded.

    I'm picturing Miles Davis just cranking this up circa 85.

    Mr Flibble likes this a lot. He doesn't like GCUgreyarea.

    I despised this group when they emerged and I still do. Pointlessly effeminate shash. It helped set a tone which pushed and shoved an otherwise fantastic decade towards the cultural vacuum that it eventually became.

    Flashing back to the mid-80s... I'm sharing an apt with my sister and a friend, and the 3 of us are voting Scritti Politti as the best looking band on MTV.

    Oh yeah! I had forgotten this one. Man, this brings me back. Back when all it took to be cooler than the Universe was to listen to Scritti, wear shades, and snap your fingers to the rythm. Yeah! ;-)
