Orange Juice - Tenterhook
When Rip It Up came out in 1982, I was a bit uncertain about it - it was a huge jump in production “values”, and I really didn’t like the slick 80s thing. It didn’t have the charm of You Can’t Hide Your Love Forever. Nonetheless, I grew to appreciate it, maybe cause I had to hold my ground against all my naysayer friends who hated Edwyn Collins’ voice. The production still bugs me a bit but there are several undeniably great songs on it. Tenterhook was the last song on the album and it appealed to me deeply in my most lovesick moments.
Don’t make any bones about it
You just tellllllllllllll me
