Through The Fog We'll Keep On Beaming


Here it is, the song that's been in my head all day- The Game by Echo And The Bunnymen. It's the last great Bunnysong by the original line-up, released in 1987 as the first single ahead of their self-titled fifth album (otherwise known as the grey album). The album was panned, the band didn't like it, or each other. Result? The US loved it, it sold half a million, they did a tour of enormo-domes, and later co-headlined the Monsters Of Alternative Rock (ugh) tour with New Order.

Big fan of this album, especially when it's drizzling.

Never really rated this track at the time when it came out but I saw the lyrics written down recently and it completely changed my view of this track after all these years.A little gem.
