3641. “Bow Down” by The Housemartins

Fan video:

The People Who Grinned Themselves To Death isn’t available on iTunes or Amazon, so I was fortune that a good friend of mine was willing to share four tracks from the album with me. I’d not previously heard “Bow Down” (I was familiar with the other three tracks) but her only had four tracks so I figured I’d add them all to my library.

There’s some great horn work (and some children’s backing vocals) here which help to provide some hooks to a song that sounds like its about the fear of leaving home and entering the work field. There’s no such thing as a lousy Housemartins song, and this upbeat, 60’s-ish number is up to the level of quality you’d expect from the band.
