Del Amitri and Me
Picking even 5 Del Amitri songs to post today was seriously insanely difficult for me. As you can see, I'm kind of a fanboy. In my opinion, despite the brief success brought from their surprise hit "Roll to Me" and to a minor extent "Always the Last to Know," they are one of the most underrated and under-appreciated pop bands in recent history. Impeccable melodies, dynamic songwriting and arrangement, and countless hooks were the trademarks of this group of American-sounding Scotsmen. Right before this pic was taken, Justin was telling me they were from Loch Lomond, Scotland. And we just said "Loch Lomond" back and forth for about 3 minutes in heavy Scottish accents. His real, mine terrible. If you're unfamiliar, let this post be a history lesson of sorts.
