From 1983 and one of my Top 20 eighties tunes. The Bitter Sweet Waltz and those lyrics sung by the Ex-Specials lead vocalist Terry Hall makes this a classic. Both poignant and poetic Amazingly Talking Heads main man , David Byrne is involved in the mixing of this along with Jeremy Green on engineering duties.
As a bonus there is a nice, almost a ‘cappella version of previous hit “The Lunatics Have Taken Over The Asylum” called “The Lunacy Legacy”, very atmospheric.
