Oliver: Beres Hammond - Move Along (5 January 1992)
We seem to be dealing only in single verses at the moment. This beautifully delivered slice of lovers' rock from one of the titans of the genre is notable for its decidedly unromantic mood. I have listened to it over and over again in recent days and still can't decide whether Hammond is singing about a relationship gone sour or a new life creedo in which to try and survive by in our dog-eat-dog world. The legacy of the 80s had a long creep to it and can colour anything which uses the "pull yourself up by the bootstraps" angle. "If you can't stand the pace, then get out of the race". Sounds like a co-write straight out of Wall Street or the Square Mile.
