Song of the Day: 'The Word Girl' by Scritti Politti

This one's in celebration of the news that Scritti Politti announced that they will do a special U.K. tour next year to play “Cupid + Psyche ’85” in its entirety. (Swoon!) I've posted two of the other singles off the group's seminal 1985 album -- "Wood Beez (Pray Like Aretha Franklin" and "Perfect Way" -- and today's selection is equally infectious. Tour details HERE. (Tickets are on sale now -- do I smell a jaunt across the pond with David?)

Ironically, Greer Garside's "Snow in Sun" was just on my Spotify as it's the most wonderful time of the year, namely when I get to play Tracey Thorn's holiday album over and over again. 

The B-side of "The Word Girl" is called "Flesh and Blood,"an alternative version of the song with Ranking Ann on vocals.
