London’s pop daydreamers THE SUNDAYS released their debut single CAN’T BE SURE
30 years ago – on 15 January 1989. Vocalist Harriet Wheeler stole many hearts right
away with her vulnerable and flustered, yet weirdly tender voice. The song was included on their debut LP Reading Writing And Arithmetic  that came out almost a yeat later in early 1990. Here’s that beauty…

Give me a story and give me a bed
Give me possessions
Oh love, luck and money they go to my head like wildfire
It’s good to have something to live for, you’ll find
Live for tomorrow
Live for a job and a perfect behind, high time
England my country, the home of the free
Such miserable weather
But England’s as happy as England can be
Why cry?
And did you know desire’s a terrible thing
The worst that I can find
And did you know desire’s a terrible thing
But I rely on mine
Aa-ah
England my country, the home of the free
Such miserable weather
But England’s as happy as England can be
Why cry?
And did you know desire’s a terrible thing
The worst that I can find
And did you know desire’s a terrible thing
But I rely on mine
Did you know desire’s a terrible thing
It makes the world go blind
But if desire, desire’s a terrible thing
You know that I really don’t mind
And it’s my life
And it’s my life
And though I can’t be sure what I want any more
It will come to me later
Well it’s my life
And it’s my life
And though I can’t be sure if I want any more
It will come to me later
Ye-e-eah

THE SUNDAYS: Bio – Albums

THE SUNDAYS – Sophomore Album ‘BLIND’ Released 25 Years Ago Today…

Going back in sonic history…

Band: THE SUNDAYS

Album: BLIND

Released: 19 October 1992 – 25 years ago today

All Music wrote: “Featuring gentle, folk-based guitars and pop melodies, the Sundays’ second album isn’t much of a sonic departure from their first album. While it does have several fine numbers, it doesn’t have as many outstanding songs as ‘Reading, Writing and Arithmetic’ nevertheless, ‘Blind’ will please most fans of the group.”

Turn Up The Volume! says: Yes, we all know that their outstanding debut album was impossible to beat but there are enough dark and bittersweet dream pop musings on ‘Blind‘ to soundtrack the dusk hours of a fall’s night and Harriet Wheeler‘s voice will always be comforting company when the lights are out…

Three highlights: Love / 24 Hours / Goodbye…
