SONG OF THE WEEK #97: The Cannanes - "Love Only Takes A Minute"

Another great Australian band, The Cannanes. It's been a wild ride for them, with a myriad lineup changes and, more importantly, millions of great pop songs. Twee, indie - that sort of thing. And in one brief period in the 80's they even had an undeniable asset in the form of Randall Lee (later of Nice and Ashtray Boy). The Lee-sung "Love Only Takes A Minute" (I'd suggest getting it on a brilliant 1994 compilation, Witchetty Pole) sees The Cannanes in their rough, lo-fi, melodic glory. The horn was a crazy touch, but it brings the song to a whole new level of awe-inspiring greatness.
