another oldie but goodie today, then again ... what did you expect: last week's number one in the charts? Not really, right?
Your number thirty-four, please enjoy:
CBS - S CBS 6228 (1978)
"Another Girl, Another Planet" is by far The Only Ones' best remembered song and has become something of a standard.
The Only Ones are often considered a one-hit wonder due to the popularity of "Another Girl, Another Planet" although the song was not actually a chart hit upon initial release in 1978. The track's first chart appearance was in July 1981, when it appeared at #44 for one week on the New Zealand charts, before dropping out of the top 50. More than a decade later, "Another Girl, Another Planet" appeared in the UK charts for two weeks in January 1992, peaking at #57.
The record is distinguished by soaring guitars, wounded vocals and Peter Perrett's elliptical lyrics framing a blasé, weary take on love and romance.
Allmusic calls it "Arguably, the greatest rock single ever recorded".
And me, I won't dare to disagree to that.
