"The track "Golden Brown" gave the band the renewed commercial success they were seeking -released as a single, it reached No. 2 in the UK chart in January 1982, and went on to become EMI's highest selling single for many years. Interestingly, many buyers were seemingly unaware of the meaning of the lyrics, which actually contain many metaphorical references to the drug heroin. This may have been further confused by different band members claiming that the song was about desertification and imperialism."
Righto, who actually cares what the song means? I just like it because it sounds interesting due to the fact it was released in the early 80s and it would not go amiss in the year 1967.
And isn't it odd that the name The Stranglers would make a great punk group name? (They play Rock music) Its sort of finding out that Sex Pistols make classical music :I (don't dare anyone say that they do)
Welcome to "The Definitive 1000 Songs of All Time 1955 to 2005" & the Mellow Mix Volumes.This site is merely to question Rolling Stone Magazine's Top 500 Songs. Everyone has songs they
like and everyone has dislikes. Remember music is like clothing.. there are many styles,
so why on earth would all people want to wear jockey "Y" fronts???
Oh, & don't forget to RATE the songs. Ta
