6 May 2013 – The Darling Buds – Crystal Clear – over on Wicked Guilty Pleasures

I am thinking of making May 6th Darling Buds Day. After all, last May 6th, I posted a video of theirs under the Guilt-Free Sunday hashtag.

This song gets no such hashtag.  In fact, this was the song – and video – in which the Darling Buds had the exact opposite reaction to being lumped in with all the other vaguely rock-and-roll alternativesque British bands led by blonde lead vocalists – c’mon, I’ve told you about this before.  They ran right toward it.  They got poppier, less dark, and tried to be mainstream.  This pursuit led to the band’s implosion, but that’s another story.

As far as this song, from the great Crawdaddy album…. well, it’s just poppy fun, and there’s nothing wrong with that.  The video is a little odd, but hey. So, enjoy it.
