Prefab Sprout – Goodbye Lucille #1 (Johnny Johnny)

#4 In the “You Had Them all Wrong” list of 80s bands

Many bands tried to rewrite Beatles’ songs; most went back to pumping gas. PS rewrites “Hey Jude,” and theirs is the better song; a gorgeous, romantic breakup song both piquant and shimmering (“you’re still in love/with Hayley Mills”)
