LYRICS

I can’t get enough of my girlfriend
I can’t get enough of her smile
I’ll trek through a jungle to find her
I’d live in a boat on the Nile

I’m gone, auf weidersehen
I’m leaving
To live in foreign lands
To be with her

Hello sun
Got to run
To the place
I belong
Sing a song
Be my love
From up above
Live each day
Making hay
When it’s over

I Love what she does to my senses
I just want to jump up and down
Lovesick I fly over fences
I can’t keep my feet on the ground

I’m gone, auf weidersehen
I’m leaving
To live in foreign lands
To be with her

Hello sun
Got to run
To the place
I belong
Sing a song
Be my love
From up above
Live each day
Making hay
When it’s over

EDITORS REVIEW

Well, let’s have a good old knees up, eh! Sometimes, it’s unmistakably clear that Madness harbours a playful ambition to transform into your friendly neighbourhood Chas and Dave cover band or perhaps even a quirky cabaret act, ’The Last Rag and Bone Man, ’ springs to mind. This is where the charm of ‘Hello Sun’ shines through. The track kicks off with a bass line that feels comfortably familiar, echoing the essence of countless R&B riffs. Bedders, we know you’ve got the chops to elevate it beyond the ordinary!

The pub piano adds a layer of nostalgic warmth, while the muted trumpet and robust brass sections inject a burst of energy into the mix. Grace Fairchild’s angelic backing vocals float effortlessly, adding an ethereal quality that contrasts beautifully with the earthy instrumentation. While one might argue that it's not the strongest musical offering in their catalogue, there’s undeniable magic in its simplicity.

Beneath its seemingly light-hearted veneer lies a poignant love letter, intricately woven through the heartache of a season in Woody’s life. It's a delicate balance of whimsy and emotion, where the music may falter, but the storytelling hits home with a powerful punch. ‘Really?’ captures the essence of Madness’s ability to blend humour with heartfelt sincerity, making it a unique and touching piece in their repertoire.

TRACK RATING: 5/10
