Singles of the year: #33

33. Drop The Pressure – Mylo

1999: I Surrender – David Sylvian
1994: Life’s A Bitch (Can’t Get A Man, Can’t Get A Job) – Sister Bliss featuring Colette
1989: All Around The World – Lisa Stansfield

The Jerry Springer – The Opera of the UK singles charts, this managed to make Number 19 with what must be the highest usage of the word “motherf***er” in musical history. Strangely, nobody ever bats an eyelid when this is playing, probably because the repeated word fits so well texturally into its surroundings. In other words, it has been used for its sound rather than its meaning, and without any attempt at shock value beyond a mild sonic tickle.
