Song of the day – 40: Teenage Fanclub
This song can reduce me to tears. Just beautiful. That line, the harmonies on that line, “Here is a sunrise/Ain’t that enough/True as a clear sky/Ain’t that enough?” Ignore the weird intro bit at the start of this video. You need to start listening at 0.17 seconds.
I received an advance copy of Teenage Fanclub’s second album Bandwagonesque about the same time as Nevermind – and I played them back-to-back on the same cassette for the entire summer of 1991. And frankly, there was never any doubt in my mind as to which was my favourite.
