About this deal

The song was inspired by Susan Lee, a character played by actress Emily Corrie in the TV series As If, who wore coloured dreadlocks. Unfortunatly, she got a lot of pressure from those people who think you have to fit in to get anywhere (no offense to anyone) and ended up following another of those "social cliches" because she was pressured into it. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover.

I was way too old to be tuning in, and indeed I didn’t make a regular habit of it, but everyone who has ever been a teenager from the 80s onwards had a Sooz somewhere in or close to their social circle; all dour toughness, hair dye, piercings and public tears, getting sympathy, friendships and relationships at first and then ultimately alienating those closest to them with their moods. The subsequent bridge is a nice diversion, but the best part is that cool surf bassline that starts it all back up again. However, the strength of the music kinda outweighs it here, as they croon their devotion to a bit of an odd girl with a passion for the alternative.The lyrics of the song were inspired by the characterization of actress Emily Corrie for the character Suzanne Lee, in the series As If, the character used colored dreadlocks. Records that aren't in picture sleeves will either be in a company sleeve or a generic plain sleeve. As for "She couldn't take the fame, she said I was to blame" and "I threw a house party and she came" I think that was a referance to him introducing her to his mates, and they were the ones pressuring her.

Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. But there’s a crispness to their power-pop borrowings, an easy, confident tunefulness most British bands struggle to access. was a tantalising glimpse into what Xenomania would have done with a boyband – like a slightly less aggressive Five.

Fair enough, there is not a single group or solo artist that every single person on the planet adores. I’ve seen them five times (albeit twice as McBusted) which with the exception of Manic Street Preachers is more than any act we’ll meet here.
