Aztec Camera - The Crying Scene (1990)

[REPOSTED BY REQUEST] I mentioned the other day that I bought a couple of CD singles from Aztec Camera. The Crying Scene is exactly what a CD single should aspire to be: something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. These are the tracks:
  1. The Crying Scene (a well known track from the album, Stray) Here's the video
  2. True Colors (a pleasant cover version of the Cyndi Lauper song)
  3. Salvation (a song not included on the album)
  4. I Threw It All Away (a live version of a Bob Dylan song)

All in all a nice set of songs. I hadn't heard the single in about 16 years. Might have to track down the album now. (Update - I got the album, and didn't like it at all. A bizarre mix of styles and no other stand out tracks)

Have you ever noticed the frightening similarity between Roddy Frame and Keira Knightly in the video for "Oblivious"? Yikes. That said, I'll always love his cover of Van Halen's "Jump"...and most of his other stuff...

Yeah I listened to the Stray album on Spotify, before downloading. Only really two good tracks. Good Morning Britain & the crying Scene. The rest are a bit odd for oor Roddy. trying too hard i think. Best Aztec album is LOVE.
