This song is right up there with the Ray Charles I recommended a while ago for the pure joy it creates. Guillemots are a relatively new band (new to the UK mainstream anyway), and every song they’ve released so far has had a certain amount of unbridled pleasure in it. Made-Up Lovesong #43 is no different! From the 2006 album Through the Window Pane this little lump of fun has the best lyrics since The King of Rock n’ Roll by Prefab Sprout. Choose it for your first dance and remind yourself of the heady days at the beginning of your romance!
Tears-from-your-Mum Factor: 4 (it’s too happy to cry!)
Inappropriate song of the week: Achy Breaky Heart by Billy Ray Cyrus (don’t even think about it)
