SONG OF THE WEEK #94: Orange Juice - "Consolation Prize"

Orange Juice were absolutely essential. Edwyn Collins’ indie romantics with a post-punk, inherently Glaswegian edge. You Can’t Hide Your Love Forever (1982), their glorious debut (as long as you can live with Edwyn’s dynamic croon), has too many classics to choose from. For the time being, I’ll go with “Consolation Prize”, their infectious, tongue-in-cheek tribute to The Byrds. If this is your first time, count yourself the world’s happiest man.
