I came to EBTG backwards. Tracy Thorn is a fantastic lyrics writer, and her collaboration in Everything But the Girl, a band with her husband, hinges on a louche sound and her fine songs.
This sort of English soul music has some seriously specific cultural touchpoints, which I don’t know, but it sounds good, especially when the lyrics aren’t stupid (or, as the English say, duff).
A lot of this stuff sounds the same, they work the same dance music rhythms, but this is one of the tunes EBTG made that sounds first rate to me. Meaning I walk around singing, Wherever you go, I will follow you.
