I Want You To Stay (Field Music/ J Xaverre Mix)Having heard that Maximo Park's Paul Smith and Field Music's Pete Brewis have collaborated (again) on another side project, I decided to re-visit their previous outings, whether in their own bands, solo or other projects. I came across I want you stay after a five year absence and was surprised at how fresh it sounded. The jaunty, catchy tune not amiss of the Beatles Yellow Submarine period with it's love lorn lyrics mark it as a classic pop song. With this in mind I feel like the solitary eloper, hearing my lover cry out after me as she chases me in an amorous pursuit. Like Eurydice she finds herself in darkness and yet I should do all the apologising. I am looking forward to the gig in June 2013, and hope an old flame hasn't gone out.
