B-Side of the Week - Can't Take My Eyes Off You

Muse
Can't Take My Eyes Off You (from the In Your World/Dead Star single)
(Mushroom)

What joy - Muse going all ba-dam ba-dam ba-dada-dam. You know, this is what the b-side format was made for. For serious bands to kick back, have a bit of fun and let their fans see a lighter side of themselves. No pressure to sell records, no pressure to appease the pitchforked gods of music criticism, and no pressure to really even give the fans a laugh. On those grounds, and purely for entertainment sake, this is a delightful cover.

Of course, that's if you compare this cover to the one I took last night. I hid under a giant rock after being chased by a four-breasted marsh-woman with a particular fondness for British bands and the studs who like them. I mean, for crying out loud, if it wasn't bad enough that I had to swim through a giant swamp, get bitten by aligators, attacked by a hive of rats that were larger than capybara, and get stung by scorpions, I had to abandon my search for the highly coveted two-lined froghopper's eggs as part of my research into curing Parkinson's disease.

So I swear, it was a bloody pain to have that damned four-breasted marsh-woman chase me into a rock. And if I might add, it sucks when the wrong girl can't take her eyes off you. Lousy bitch.

Bought this single when it came out and had forgotten it was on the b-side. Cheers for reminding me.
