Every song is a cleverly crafted piece of pop genius. It may not be Mozart but it is classic music nevertheless. The vocals are a strangely quirky high pitch bouncing off Kate Bush, Bjork and Sparks. The rhythms are as memorable as Abba, the lyrics far superior.
If your Lucky Number is a Bird Song with the Angels then the Writing is on the Wall for you. Buy this and you will not be disappointed. Otherwise spend your money if your prefer on a bag of sweets - same price!
Oh Lene - What Will We Do Without You? What Will We, What Will We, Do Without You.
Most of the hits were written by Lovich and Les Chappel, including the quirky Lucky Number which was a huge hit (Nina Hagen covered it in German on her Unbehagen album). Not all are bright, happy numbers: the acerbic Home and Too Tender (To Touch) with its lovely piano are sad but beautiful torch songs, and there's a great version of the old standard I Think we're Alone Now.
Unfortunately not all my favorites are included. Amongst the serious omissions are One In A Million and the sinister Telepathy. To a degree, the inclusion of some rarities compensates, especially the track Blue which I had not heard before. Lovich excelled as both a quirky pop singer and a torch diva. Fans of, say, Jane Siberry and Mary Margaret O'Hara will find a lot to enjoy in her music.
