How Your Flesh And Blood Became The Word

Image Hosted by

Today it's another great single from Scritti Politti's Cupid & Psyche 85 - The Word Girl / Flesh And Blood. A return to reggae rhythms - they have always had a role in Green's music - it features the distinctive toasting of South London militant DJ Ranking Ann. It's a uniquely Scritti take on lover's rock. The Word Girl (Flesh And Blood) (Version) is the remix from the b-side of the 12". It's got a great skank to it, and I like the melody. Sweet.

Please feel free to delete this if it's tipping your posting hand early, but that album's secret weapon is "Don't Work That Hard".

What a greatly composed song.
