Singles of the year: #64

64. Take Your Mama – Scissor Sisters

Shock horror! But they’re your favourite band, Mike! Why so low?

Because eventually, you can play a song to death. And because I didn’t think it was the best choice for a single. And because for most of 2004, whenever the Scissor Sisters appeared on telly, they would always perform this song – and I wanted to hear them do some of their others.

Great while it lasted, though. Always makes me think of the time when a much younger Buni sneaked his mother into Heaven on a Saturday night, back in the late 1980s when it was still strictly men-only, by dressing her up as a drag queen. (She had a blast, apparently.)
