Song of the day: The Stranglers- Golden Brown
A strange kind of eighties song today. The release was around the change of the year, so in the US it’s a 1981 single and in the UK it’s a 1982 single. In the UK, it went to number 2 in the chart, causing the single to be the Stranglers highest charted single. I won’t have a go on explaining where the song is about, since there has been a lot of discussion on this topic. Most accepted is that the song can be heard as a song about a girl, but also as a song about heroin. Enough song analysis, just listen to it. A wonderful song with a great intro. Enjoy
