Texture, tone and grain

Three songs that directly inspired the sound of  'Waiting For You' :
Horace Andy - 'Cuss Cuss' (from 'Dancehall Style' on Wackies)
Scritti Politti - 'Sweetest Girl'(Robert Wyatt guest spot, and keys to die for)
Lizz Fields - 'Say the Word'(Hat tilted to loefah, for the tip off)

  1. Funny, just been listening to Scritti's The Word 'Girl' which got me thinking about the generally unacknowledged influence of Lovers Rock on 1980s pop (think UB40, even The Police - all those falsetto melodies)
