Ronan’s Track of the Week (11 September 2017)

Track of the Week from me this week is Belle and Sebastian’s ‘I’m a Cuckoo’, taken from the ‘Dear Catastrophe Waitress’ album from 2003, and released as a single the following year. As I said on Monday, I think it’s so good I’d be happy to play it two or three times in a row, but spared the listeners this time…

It mentions Thin Lizzy, and there’s something of their sound in there, but it also reminds me a lot of Bob Dylan, and ‘Positively 4th Street’ is the song I’m thinking of – maybe…

I love the video too, which shows what a great running song this is! There’s also quite a maximalist remix from The Avalanches which was included with the single at the time. I prefer the original though  – pure genius.
