This song is a blast from the past for me. I used to work for a design firm in Edinburgh and do the whole 9-5 and get paid a pittance as I was a junior. I hated it but I also loved it. What got me through each day? The people I worked with and the music. Without these each day would’ve been miserable.
I remember when this song first came out and I remember watching the video in awe as we’d never seen anything like it – we couldn’t figure out how the video had been done – we loved the paper/cardboard textures and thought it was amazing as it was so original. This was cutting edge at the time, but looking at it now, it looks so raw and basic compared to the amazing effects that can be achieved now a days. Anyway, I love this song and it reminds me of those days of employment many many moons ago, and walking to and from work to save money as I was on such a low wage – it was great to be sawing £1.40 a day on bus fares in order to be able to afford to go out for a drink at the end of the week!
